LAS VEGAS -- Huawei said Monday that its 6.1-inch-screen Ascend Mate has the largest display of any smartphone on the planet.
The Chinese company announced the device and its smaller sibling, the 5-inch Ascend D2, at CES. Huawei CEO Richard Yu said that besides having large displays, the two phones are also more durable than their competitors.
To make his point, Yu held one of the phones over a tank and poured a pitcher of water on the device. Yu then walked back to the center of the stage, boasting about the phones' toughness before dropping the device. As he picked it up, Yu said consumers could do the same with the phones on a rocky road and they'd be fine.
Besides durability, the phones have quite a few features worth noting.
The Ascend D2 features a full 1080p HD resolution and a pixel density of 443, according to a slide during the presentation. That figure would give the Ascend D2 the highest pixel density of any smartphone on the market.
