Huawei Ascend Mate and Ascend D2 receive network license in China

Huawei’s two newest Android phones have received some official love today as both the Ascend Mate and Ascend D2 have been given network licences in China, meaning they can go on sale ASAP!

Gizchina News of the week

The 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate showed up at the Telecommunication Equipment Center in China, alongside it the smaller 5-inch Ascend D2 to receive a full bill of health, and allow both devices to go on sale in the Chinese mainland.

As the Chinese New Year holidays are only a few weeks away, we expect Huawei to rush both phones out in to stores over the coming weeks to take advantage of the holiday shopping season.

    Sounds good, i wonder when we’ll here about an overseas release. If Huawei get it to other countries on time, market it correctly and undercut competitors on price i can see them have a very good 2013.

    yeah,they made a real mess of the P1 and D1, hopefully they learnt something.

      Could not agree more. They really should have had a better year last year if there were no delays to their overseas releases. I think Huawei need to do what ZTE are doing and try and get more agreements with Networks to range their phones on Contract.

      Haha yep, thankfully in the UK every phone is released sim free first so i think we’ll see it over here on amazon and other retailers which is great.
