Huawei launches two Ascend smartphones in Singapore

Caroline Ng | June 7, 2013
Huawei is ahead of the race in launching possibly the industry’s fastest and largest display smartphones.

Chinese phone maker, Huawei, has launched two smartphones that lead industry's standards of display and speed.

Boasting a 6.1 inch display, the Ascend Mate can be considered as a phablet - a portmanteau of a larger smartphone and a smaller tablet.

The HD display comes with a LCD with 720 pixels to offer an unparalleled visual experience.

The improved battery crowns the fastest charging capability in its range, saving over 30 percent of battery charging time, the company said in a statement.

In addition, the 4050 mAh battery utilises a smart power-saving technology to provide up to two days of usage in a single charge.

The Ascend P2, meanwhile, is touted as one of the world's fastest smartphones with a download speed of up to 150Mbps empowered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor with LTE Cat 4 feature.

It features a 4.7 inch touchscreen HD display and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The Ascend Mate (1GB edition) will be retailing at S$638 from 22 June while the Ascend P2 hit local shelves yesterday for S$768.
