Report: Huawei faces shortages of the 4.7 inch panel for the Huawei Ascend P6
The Chinese OEM believes that it can sell 10 million units of the phone, but it has hit a snag. A shortage of 4.7-inch HD in-cell LCD panels could affect production of the handset. According to industry sources, JDI's shortage of the panel is acute and with more demand than supply at the moment for the display, sales of the Huawei Ascend P6 could suffer. The model is priced at CNY $2688 ($440 USD) but basic economics suggests that if demand stays the same and supply goes down, the price goes up. But figuring on demand remaining static is probably asking too much in the smartphone industry where depreciation of a new model starts the day it is launched.

But this is a very good designed phone, nice option to buy with great specs and build quality that too from Chinese OEM.

You pointed out a solid point. People don't know to buy a phone if their is no compelling advertisement, let alone, any advertisement for the device.

I've seen it (in Lisbon) and touched it, very well built, good design and premium feel… I have to say I was impressed! It has that premium feel that only the iphone and few other phones have, and it does not have the gigantic size of the latest 5" flagships by samsung etc.

Samsung, which is the major LCD manufacture, warn about a LCD shortage earlier this year. Be Amoled, SuperLCD 2,3 and IPS screens, Samsung has more capacity than anyone to deliver yet even they warned of a shortage. Why? Samsung flagship will get their displays first followed by Apple ( which will have all of LG's and sharps capacity and even Samsung's) so other lower tier manufactures get almost nothing

The phone looks like a Z with 4S design and the bottom front is like the Xperia BRAVIA concept at concept-phones.com

it's a nice phone if you see this up close. made of glass and metal and the sim ejector pin is built-in at the lower part of the phone. drawback is lack of lte i guess
