Huawei prepping a Google Edition Ascend P6 in its turn
Huawei's director of handsets production confirmed in an interview that the company is negotiating with Mountain View to release a Google Edition phone, and join the ranks of Samsung and HTC.
The Chinese are getting pretty serious about their mobile presence, as their recent excellent Ascend Mate and Ascend P6 phones indicate, and the CEO Richard Yu even said they are after Samsung and Apple, which according to him are not giving their best now.
The Google Edition phone from Huawei will be the ultrathin Ascend P6, with its 6.18mm thin chassis and premium build. Actually the new Emotion UI of Huawei, as we reviewed it on the Ascend Mate, is pretty innovative already, dealing away with the app drawer, and letting you hide or show the on-screen navigational buttons bar from any app, so the Google Edition version will likely be just for street cred.
