At a world wide press event in London (see our live photo coverage here), Huawei unveiled the Huawei Ascend P6, the world's slimmest smartphone measuring 6.18 mm. The smartphone features a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and a sleek metallic body. With its 4.7" high definition in-cell display, an industry-leading 5 megapixel front-facing camera, and outstanding software, the Huawei Ascend P6 is the embodiment of elegance with an edge. Huawei Ascend P6 is ultra slim at and weighs just about 120 g. While it is small enough to slip into the tiniest of pockets or clutch bags, the stylish Huawei Ascend P6 is designed to be seen and coveted! It features Android 4.2.2, a 2000 mAh battery, 4.7-inch HD in-cell LCD screen technology and "MagicTouch" for enhanced screen responsiveness even when wearing gloves.
As the flagship smartphone of the Huawei Ascend P series, the Huawei Ascend P6 embodies a cutting edge design for the fashion conscious. The smartphone's brushed metallic look with a naturally curved base is both elegant and intuitive. Impossibly beautiful, the Ascend P6 balances fashionable features and user-friendly functions.
Perfect for "selfies", the Huawei Ascend P6's industry-leading 5 megapixel front-facing camera and auto facial-enhancing capabilities create model-gorgeous shots you'll want to share. Its 8 megapixel rear-facing BSI camera with F2.0 aperture and 4 cm macro view also enables 1080P full HD video recording and playback. With Huawei's proprietary IMAGESmart software, the Huawei Ascend P6 turns even the most novice photographer into a professional, with contrast and color enhancement, auto scene recognition, object tracing focus, and instant facial beauty support.
The Huawei Ascend P6 is even more intuitive and able to be customized with Huawei's Emotion UI. Inspired by people, for device users worldwide, Huawei has gathered input from over 5 million consumers to help us optimize the latest version of Emotion UI. The proprietary user interface includes updates to Uni-Home including enhanced security, Huawei's Me Widget, MagicTouch, and SmartReading. New to Huawei's Emotion UI are the panoramic shoot and facial recognition photography functions.
Huawei's unique Automated Discontinuous Reception (ADRX) and Quick Power Control (QPC) battery optimization and power saving technology improves performance by more than 30 %, compared with smartphone batteries of equal size. With its multi-screen AirSharing capability, you can connect to a range of devices to boost your productivity at work or play by easily sharing documents or enhance your gaming experience with minimal lag time.
The Huawei Ascend P6 is available in black, white and pink with matching color cases. It will begin shipping to China from June and to Western Europe from July through Vodafone, Telefonica, Orange, H3G, O2, TIM and online via Amazon and with other markets to follow. Its estimated retail price without a subscription is 449 Euro. While the Ascend P6, as just announced, comes without LTE support, the LTE version was announced for later this year, most likely late fall.
