Huawei Mate is the new massive mobile phone from the Chinese company.
It is equipped with a 6.1-inch screen, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, all accompanied by an eight mega-pixel camera and a mega 4050 mAh battery.
The company has created its own skin for the phone called “Emotion UI” that works similarly to Facebook Home, as it is embedded in the device over the operating system.
Emotion UI tries to make using a phone easier for consumers, putting everything you need in front of them in something called the Me widget.
Although the device seems to focus on everything having its own place it doesn't have an app compartment, so anything users download is thrown onto the homescreen, which could potentially get cluttered if users have a lot of applications.
The firm says the battery should last for nine days on standby and two days of use, which is fairly impressive for the quad-core device.
Huawei Mate will retail for $429 from next week at Harvey Norman, the first company to retail it.
