Announced last month at its dedicated press event in London, the Huawei Ascend P6 is Huawei's latest addition to its range of Android-powered Ascend smartphones. Being - at the moment - the world's slimmest smartphone, by being only 6.18 mm thick, the Ascend P6 runs on Android 4.2.2 and is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core HiSilicon K3V2E CPU. It supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900 MHz as well as pentaband UMTS/HSPA+ up to 42.2 Mbps down at 850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz. However, unlike other high-end smartphones in this category, the P6 lacks, at the moment, LTE. Other than that, the P6 comes with Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi b/g/n and GPS / GLONASS support as well as an FM radio.
The smartphone features a sleek metallic body and measures 132.65 x 65.5 x 6.18 mm only and weights, including the 2,000 mAh battery, 120 g. The Ascend P6 sports a 4.7-inch 720p HD in-cell LCD screen and "MagicTouch" for enhanced screen responsiveness even when wearing gloves. The industry-leading front-facing camera has a resolution of 5 megapixel, which is good for 720p HD videos; while the rear-facing autofocus camera comes with a resolution of 8 megapixel which allows to record full 1080p HD videos.
The Huawei Ascend P6 is now available in black and white and is already on retail and available from carriers in selected European and Asian countries - including China. A pink version will follow-up soon.
