Huawei announced today its many-times-leaked and ultrathin 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. There’s a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor behind the scenes, along with what appears to be 1.5-2GB RAM (it’s not specified at the moment) and a 2000mAh battery.
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 Ascend P6’s lap, covered by the company’s bright and colourful Emotion UI, which has received a few tweaks since the last iteration.
No word on a North American launch; Huawei is sending the P6 to China this month, and Western Europe sometime in July.
