Can Huawei’s Ascend Mate 2 take on the Samsung Note 3?


With multiple phablet phones already out in the market any new release will have to outsmart the existing ones in terms of features and pricing.

The Chinese tech giant Huawei has announced the successor to its Ascend mate at the CES in Las Vegas and the new device has one major potential over the others. With a 4,050mAh battery Huawei is not only promising its clients a battery life of up to two and half days or 60 hours, it has even introduced a feature where you can use the battery power from the smartphone to charge other devices.

The new phone retains its screen size at 6.1” with a 720p IPS display and is powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM and a 13 megapixel rear camera.

The smartphone is 9.5mm thick and weighs just 202grams. Now compare this with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.3 GHz processor, 3GB RAM, a Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery and a 13 MP camera.

While the Samsung Note 3 is priced at around Dh2,500 Huawei is yet to announce the pricing and availability date.
But we believe that Huawei will keep the price at a competitive level and well below Dh2,000 to take on the likes of Samsung and other phablets in the market.
