LTE enabled Huawei Ascend Mate 2 goes on pre-order in the US

The Ascend Mate 2 4G, from Hauwei’s own series of endurance phablets, goes on pre-sale in the US starting today.

This 6.1 inch monster of a device will be available for pre-order at Huawei’s brand new US store, where it is priced at $299.99. This is a good price to pay for a device when you consider its unlocked nature, which means you have your freedom to shift from carrier to carrier. What’s more, if you pre-order before 22nd June, you also get a free flip cover for the device along with a SIM card loaded with $50 worth of free services.
