The Ascend Mate2 features a powerful quad-core 1.6 GHz processor and a long-lasting 3900mAh lithium polymer battery that lets you enjoy a half-day of web surfing on a single charge. Featuring unique power-saving technology that improves performance by more than 30 percent versus other smartphones in its class, a single charge can let you:
- Stream three movies in a row;
- Surf the web for 12 hours;
- Talk for 25 hours;
- Or, listen to 100 hours of music.
With a large 6.1-inch, Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 IPS screen, and lightning-fast LTE Cat4 connectivity, the Mate2 is perfect for non-stop entertainment.
The 13-megapixel BSI rear-facing camera, features a 2.0 aperture, making it easy to take crystal clear, professional-quality photos. Turn the phone around and its 5-megapixel front-facing camera, offers both panoramic mode and Auto Face Enhancement, so you get a wider view to help you create amazing selfies and groufies.
"We're going beyond the idea of great selfies to deliver something new," Mr. Xu said. "After all, your life is big, the Mate2 is big, so your selfies and groufies should be big too. Our panoramic feature turns everyday groufies into something epic."
Running Android™ 4.3, the Ascend Mate2 comes in black and white, and features Huawei's proprietary Emotion UI 2.0 Lite, for easy customization. Despite the large screen, the Ascend Mate2's 9.5mm slim shape, and the ergonomic designed casing make it comfortable to hold and operate.
