Huawei is gearing towards launching a third device in the Ascent Mate series, which — unlike its predecessor — 3 will be a high- rather than mid-end phablet.
The Mate 2 came with a 6.1-inch 720p HD screen and Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip; according to its AnTuTu listing, the Mate 3 will keep the screen size while cramming more pixels on it for a full HD resolution (1080 x 1920 pixels). Moreover, it will use a much more powerful Snapdragon 805 SoC that is found in just a few of the top end phones (with more coming soon).
Rest of the specs will apparently include 2 or 3 GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, while Android 4.4.2 KitKat will run the show right from the get-go. What’s more, some rumors suggest this device will be made out of metal, making for a that much better look and feel
According to G4Games, the Chinese company will officially announce the Ascend Mate 3 at some point in September. At first, it will be offered in China, with other countries getting it at a later date. We’re sure Huawei would want to have its baby selling all around the world, but as we know it all too well, they’re not the only one pulling the strings…
