Say hello to Huawei's latest flagship beast of a phone, the Ascend Mate 7.

This giant phone has a 6-inch display with a whopping 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution, an octa-core processor, fingerprint scanner and a slick metal body.

There's no word yet on precisely how much the phone will cost, but it's safe to assume it won't have a bargain basement price.

Beneath the camera is a fingerprint scanner. Huawei reckons it can recognise your print, whichever angle you press it down.

It's running on an octa-core processor, which is made up of two quad-core chip -- one to tackle demanding tasks and one to take care of the day to day activities.

The rear camera has a 13-megapixel resolution and an f/2.0 aperture which should make it good in low-light situations.

It has milled edges which are very reminiscent of HTC's One Max -- as is the positioning of the fingerprint scanner and in fact, most of the design.

The display has a very slim bezel, so the body hasn't needed to balloon out too much to fit in that huge screen.

The display has a 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution which makes things look extremely crisp. It's bright too and seemed to have decent colours too.

The metal chassis feels good to hold -- whether you prefer it to the plastic back of Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 is up to your personal taste!
