Huawei Ascend P6 Launched, The World’s Slimmest Android Smartphone
Huawei announced today its many-times-leaked and the world’s slimmest Android smartphone, the Huawei Ascend P6, the new metallic prize in its smartphone collection.
The 4.7-inch device comes in at a staggering 6.18mm thin and weighs a slight 120g, with a 1280×720 in-cell display that has MagicTouch abilities, another term for being responsive while wearing gloves.
Under the hood of the Huawei Ascend P6, you get Huawei’s very own HiSilicon K3V2 SoC at the helm of things. This chip combines a quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU clocked at 1.50 GHz, with a 16-core GPU, and a soft-modem that’s capable of HSPA+ (21.1 Mbps), 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. In Dual-SIM versions, the SoC is backed by 2 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal storage that’s expandable with micro-SDHC (by up to 32 GB). A 2,000 mAh battery powers the device, which is generous, considering its dimensions of 132.7 x 65.5 x 6.2 mm, and 120 g weight.
Huawei is also promoting its sealed 2000mAh battery as providing up to 30% better uptime than the equivalent cell size from another manufacturer, and the 8MP rear camera boasts macro views of 4cm. The front-facing camera is also noteworthy, as its absurdly high 5MP resolution may be approaching overkill.
Lastly, Huawei has dropped Android 4.2.2 into the Huawei Ascend P6 ? lap, covered by the company’s bright and colourful Emotion UI, which has received a few tweaks since the last iteration.
Huawei is pushing into handsets just like it pushed into infrastructure, using technical innovation funded from a secure home market reaching out to grab some market share.
Indian pricing and availability has not been announced yet.
