Huawei Ascend P6 was showing up in countless rumors as the slimmest smartphone, but today the thin device has been made official. Huawei’s latest flagship smartphone comes in an extremely thin package and yet somehow manages to cram impressive specifications inside. The Huawei Ascend P6 will be made available in markets around the globe this summer starting in June. The smartphone will be available in black, white and pick colors. Here are its specs:
- Body: 6.18 mm thick, 120 grams, metallic case
- Display: 4.7-inch LCD, HD resolution, 312 PPI pixel density
- Platform: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 1.6
- Processor: 1.5 GHz quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor
- RAM: 2GB
- Storage: 8GB built-in, extendable up to 32GB through an SD card
- Front-facing camera: 5-megapixel with feature support for “selfies” and capable of capturing 1080p videos
- Rear-facing camera: 8-megapixel BSI with F2.0 aperture, LED Flash and 4cm macro view, can record Full HD videos

The Huawei Ascend P6 is certainly a great looking smartphone, the thin profile of only 6.18 mm and light weight of 120 grams makes it one of the best around. Not to mention the brushed metal, which gives the Huawei Ascend P6 a truly premium feel and look. The resemblance with the iPhone 5 can’t be avoided here but Huawei Ascend P6 does differentiate itself from Apple’s flagship in numerous ways. The 5 MP front facing camera will be perfect for vanity shots and selfies. Huawei uses something called “Magic Touch”, it is a technology which can enable you to use the touch screen with gloves on.
On the software end the Huawei Ascend P6 is running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean along with Huawei’s own UI. The manufacturer has also added various software utilities like SmartReading, AirSharing and MagicTouch. The Huawei Ascend P6 will start shipping in China starting in June and move up to Western Europe in July. Vodafone, Telefonica, Orange, H3G, O2, Carphone Warehouse, TalkTalk, Media Markt & Saturn and TIM will be the carriers of Huawei Ascend P6. The Huawei Ascend P6 will also be available online via Amazon and CDiscount.
