Prior to Richard Yu's demonstration of the Ascend Mate he had confirmed the company is working on such a device.

The Ascend Mate should make an appearance at CES, alongside the 5" Ascend D2, and should cost around $480 (3000).

It remains to be seen what version of Android the Ascend Mate will be running but Jelly Bean is a safe bet.
