LAS VEGAS (AFP) - Chinese tech giant Huawei moved further into the high end of the smartphone market on Monday, unveiling two devices for Asian consumers aimed at rivaling the top global sellers.

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Huawei unveiled its new Ascend Mate - claimed to have the world's biggest screen for such a device, a 6.1 inch display - as well as an Intel processor and improved battery life.

The company also showed its new flagship Ascend D2, touring its power-saving and easy sharing capacity.

The devices are set to be released in China, with the D2 slated for Japan later.
