Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G, as its name suggests, is the successor of the original Ascend Mate which debuted last year. The 6.1” LTE phablet just went up for pre-order in the United States for $299 unlocked and free of contract commitments.
Visually, the Huawei Ascend Mate2 is no different than its predecessor. The phablet is a large rectangular slab, whose front is dominated by the humongous 6.1” 720p IPS display, covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
