At this year’s CES in Las Vegas Huawei brought the huge, 6.1-inch, Ascend Mate. After taking a closer look at this device, and comparing it to the already established Samsung Galaxy Note II, we’ve concluded that the Huawei phone was not a Note-killer. At least not this phablet, but the ZTE Grand Memo, leaked previously, could be!
It will officially be unveiled next month at MWC in Barcelona despite being showed off at a ZTE event in Hong Kong the other day. It has a 5.7-inch screen with 720p resolution and packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC clocking at 1.7GHz, 13-megapixel camera, and a microSD card slot. It’s 8mm thin and runs Android 4.1.2, but these could all change (or not) in the days leading up to MWC, as the phone in Hong Kong was a prototype.
We’ll be there in Barcelona to tell you whether this ZTE is a Note-killer or not.
