Huawei Ascend Mate 2 leaks with 6.1-inch screen

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 has leaked once again, with the follow-on to the Chinese manufacturer’s 2013 phablet offering tipped to boast a 6.1-inch screen.

Expected to maintain the same 6.1-inch form factor as its predecessor, latest reports have claimed that the Huawei Ascend Mate follow-on will be a very much incremental update to the little adopted phablet device.

Ticking few of the customary check boxes of a handset refresh, it has been suggested that the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 will maintain the same 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 720p resolution display as the original model.

While the phone’s processor and screen seem to have been overlooked, the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 will reportedly play host to a much improved camera collection.

With the second-generation device’s primary camera rumoured to jump from an 8-megapixel offering to a 13-megapixel snapper, the secondary, forward-facing camera will reportedly be bolstered from a basic 1-megapixel sensor to a new 5-megapixel market leader.

Contrary to the latest reports, however, leaks last month suggested that while the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 screen will not be getting any bigger, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rival will be making the jump to a 1080p Full HD display over the current 720p HD offering.

Although Android 4.4 KitKat is now coming aboard a number of new devices, the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is said to be somewhat stuck in the past, tipped to launch with the now aging Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS in tow.

While the handset is not expected to come in for much of a specs overhaul, leaked Huawei Ascend Mate 2 pictures, emerging via Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, the phone will boast a more premium brushed metal exterior.
