More pics of the Huawei Ascend Mate leak

The 6.1 incher has leaked again, along with an advert that takes aim at the Galaxy Note 2.

His pride and joy is an Infocus projector, whose 80-inch picture elevates movie nights to a whole new level.

We first spied the 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate a few days ago, when an exec whipped it out in a shop in China. And now here's some more snaps of the blower in action, courtesy of MyDrivers, via Android Central.

The mahoosive mobile is seen alongside another device that's expected to make an appearance at CES, the Huawei Ascend D2. There's also word on some of the specs, and you'll be reassured to know they're pretty mammoth too.

It hasn't been confirmed, but I can't see a phone this big being underpowered. Word is it'll have a quad-core 1.8GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 400mAh battery. The screen is said to be 1080p, and the device is expected to be just 9.9mm thick. Considering the size of the thing, and all that processing power inside, that's pretty amazing.

An advert for the Ascend Mate has leaked along with the photos, and Huawei is pretty open about targeting the competition. It shows the 6.1-inch screen superimposed over a 5.5 incher, so you can see how much more you can fit into photos -- click the "Next page" button at the top of the story to see it for yourself.

I'm sure I don't need to remind you that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2's screen is 5.5 inches. Being far and away the most successful mobile over the 5-inch mark, the Note 2 is an obvious target for Huawei, so it looks like Samsung has a fight on its hands.

I'm expecting Huawei to unveil the Ascend Mate at CES in January. We'll be on hand to bring you all the news as it happens, so stay tuned.

Would you buy a 6.1-inch phone? Is it just too big, or can you see it catching on? Let me know in the comments, or over on Facebook.
