Huawei preparing super thin 4.9" Galaxy S4 rival

Huawei preparing super thin 4.9
Huawei has long been trying to establish itself in the ranks of Samsung, HTC and the rest, and its latest attempt comes as a super thin 4.9” full HD phone aimed at rivaling the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Specs for the mysterious device have leaked on several Chinese forums and while it’s not official, it seems a lot of the details about this device are already known.

The new Huawei flagship is expected to feature a new generation 1.8GHz K3V3 quad-core Cortex A15-based processor with Mali T604 graphics and 2GB of RAM. It is said to have a 4.9” 1080p display, a 13 Megapixel camera and a 2600 mAh battery.

What’s pretty amazing is that Huawei has managed to stuff all this in a razor thin body - the upcoming Android device will only measure 6.3mm thick.

We hope Huawei manages to pull this one off as most of its recent announcements take forever to arrive in store shelves after their official unveiling, and this is not even official yet.

Huawei can prepare all they want....but if they wanna win this they have to bring it on with the unique software features hust like the S3, Note 2 and S4! Otherwise no dice....

I doubt it, huawei keeps pushing for the thinnest device....It doesn't really matter once it's under 10mm anymore. Just make an overall quality device and it will sell well.

If Huawei really wanna pull this thing up and want to be a straight competitor of sammy (probably in dreams) these specs wont help as the next device probably the mysterious Moto GP X (whatever the silly name is ) has already tempting specs and also it should look for the software department which sammy (though it only gimmicks the already present ideas) and incorporate it with regular OS updates then it can win............. ummmmmm! forgot one more tasty spice to add "HYPE"

Speaking of manufacturers, the real daddy is Samsung, HTC and Sony. Huawei is just too far behind, just for making it clear, I didn't say before Huawei is the dad.

And it still is an Huawei. And people only think of Huawei for cheap phones, in fact almost every single Huawei device a friend/family has owned has failed except for my brother's phone..

Hey Guys, this is maybe not any longer rumour. The technical details are suitable for the Huawei Ascend P2S, which was circulated a few days as a rumor in the market. have a look here >> dslundmobilfunk.de/wp/allgemein/huawei-ascend-p2s-​kommt-im-juni-2013-mit-nur-63-millimetern-d**ke/ So I am sure that the actual technical details relating to the Ascend P2S.

now the question is is 1.8GHz K3V3 quad-core Cortex A15 will be powerful to compete against exynos 5 octa??

Should beat the s4, but time will tell.

Samsung is famous because of the gestures. Huawei needs to work on those areas.

Isn't it a surprise that no one is asking if this is going to be 'plastic" or metal. considering how some have criticised the S4, I am baffled.

It's human nature to crave for what they cannot get easily ...
