Huawei just introduced the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate…smartphone.

I think the Chinese company meant to call it a phablet, because this thing is huge. The device offers a 720p display, 361-ppi screen, 1.5GHz quad-core K3V3 quad-core chip, 8-megapixel camera, 4050mAh battery, and Android Jelly Bean.

According to Gizmodo, it will launch in China late this month and rollout to other markets soon. A United States launch date, as well as pricing specifics, is not yet available.

9to5Google is live at CES 2013 and hopes to get a live demo of this “smartphone” soon.
