Huawei today revealed a teaser for a sales web site that will offer the company's Ascend Mate 2 phablet direct to U.S. consumers. The Ascend Mate 2 is a phablet with a 6.1-inch display that was first revealed at CES in January. It competes with Samsung's Galaxy Mega. It sports impressive camera and battery specs, paired with a mid-range display and processor to achieve a lower price point. Huawei is not yet announcing the release date and pricing.
The Ascend Mate 2 from Huawei represents an interesting choice. This big-screened Android smartphone isn't being sold by US carriers, but it is available unlocked and on the cheap from Huawei itself.
Huawei's phablet for 2014 is the Ascend Mate2 4G. It's a 6.1-incher with a lot of features, but trims a few things to make it more affordable than the competition.
