Huawei Ascend P6 now official – "world’s slimmest smartphone"
“The HUAWEI Ascend P6 is a star among smartphones with its industry-leading design, high-quality camera, and intuitive user interface, Huawei’s proprietary Emotion UI,” said Richard Yu, Chief Executive Officer, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Building on the success of our Ascend P series of fashion smartphones, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 provides unsurpassed technology and a design that is simply stunning.”
HUAWEI Ascend P6 is ultra slim at 6.18mm and weighs just about 120g. 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 a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.2.2 operating system, 2000mAh 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 5MP front-facing camera and auto facial-enhancing capabilities create model-gorgeous shots you’ll want to share. Its 8MP rear-facing BSI camera with F2.0 aperture and 4cm 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, Carphone Warehouse, TalkTalk, Media Markt & Saturn, TIM and online via Amazon and CDiscount with other markets to follow.

6.18 mm? I am thinking of replacing my knife with this stuff.
PS - Any humiliation to the phone is totally unintentional. I had to say it to keep those haters away.

Huawei? No thanks.
Nice iPhone design though.

Yep, that's the most blatant iPhone design ripoff yet.

I guess we can start buying Chinese phones now that we know that our own government is spying on us anyways.
Reasons I wouldn't buy the phone? I had the original Droid Razr and that thing would get so hot that you would have to put it down for about 5-10 minutes before you could use it again. 2000maH is kind of a crap battery for such a large display, and since I have a DSLR the cameras wouldn't be a huge selling point for me, although the 4cm macro capability is pretty cool. I'm guessing that's an S4 Snapdragon under the hood.

No thanks! There will be a chip built into the phone so they can spy on us Americans, steal our trade secrets among other things.

Does being the slimmest increase the phone's reliability. NO. Huawei makes garbage phones.

It's surprising how a communist junk dealer like Huawei release an aesthetically beautiful device like this. Hahahaa.. But it's obviously a Sony Xperia Z + iPhone 5 ripoff! LOL. Just the name Huawei sounds cheap, so never. Never I'm gonna buy a Huawei! :D
