Huawei prepping a Google Edition Ascend P6 in its turn

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.

The problem with this P6, it is underpowered. They should have used a quad core Snapdragon. At least the S4 variant, or the 600.

It is a quad core with Huawei's K3V2E, but that doesn't mean it's underpowered.

The P6 is a nice device for the €400, if the Google edition will get the same price tag, it'll be even better. This is a fine example when the product delivers right on the money, no 1080p, SD600 or LTE, but respectable performance, superb build, size and looks, good UI and a very good screen. Just 4 months ago this would've been a flagship, now you can get it in the mid-range.

Huawei is just not using their sense, if they had been using Qualcoms processor instead of their OLD K3V2, which lies now in mid range category, then they could make their remarkable impact due to design, but when i know where this device lie, i will go for xperia SP rather,, bcz i believe Qualcom dual core krait at same price element is better then Huawei Quadcore

To sell this would have to be sold at the same / less than Nexus 4.

Pretty cool. I've been wanting to try a Huawei phone for a long time. Ever since I swung by a T-Mobile store long ago and played with a myTouch made by Huawei I was impressed with the build quality for a budget product. Now the one that I feel the most draw from is the Ascend Mate. I wish they'd release that on T-Mobile.

Tmo doesn't need to release it for you to use it on their network... just sayin :) it's a great device, you will love it. Once you go big you'll never go back
