Huawei pumps excitement around the superthin Ascend P6 some more, matching metallic case is in store
Scheduled to be unveiled tomorrow at a dedicated event in London, the Huawei Ascend P6 is heavily rumored to land as the thinnest smartphone out there, with exclusive design and peculiar attention to detail in the build quality. Huawei's CEO Richard Yu even posted about it the statement below:

"You know, after using the P6 more and more, I've begun to notice how nice the side keys were designed and how good it felt to press them. Their positioning along the edge felt just right and natural. They aren't protruding out too much so you don't have to worry about the wrong button being pushed when it's in your pocket, nor are they too flat that they're uncomfortable to feel. We were able to find that "sweet spot."

At the rumored 6.2mm thin, and partly metal chassis, the Ascend P6 should indeed be a sight to behold, provided that Huawei got all the other components right, and, judging by what they did with the Ascend Mate, there is every indication they will be.

Huawei, however, just posted that besides the awesome design of the phone itself, a matching case will come for it as an official accessory: "Ascend P6# slimming design has partnered with its just-as-slimming metallic case, made with the utmost care in quality and detail." Sweet. The event starts at 9am Eastern tomorrow, and we'll be sure to let you know all about the upcoming slimmest smartphone as it happens.

If they want any attention in the US, Huawei needs a new name. Even the highest quality Chinese vendor is viewed as cheap Chinese copycat crap.

Not saying all Chinese vendors are crap, just that they need to pay attention to branding themselves. LG and HTC were wise to stick with acronyms. Sony and Samsung have been around long enough that their names hold some weight. Otherwise, look at the Japanese electronics brands. Sharp. Panasonic. Pioneer. Americans didn't have to think about the fact that they bought Japanese products. Korea is where Japan used to be. Samsung, LG, Hyundai, Kia have broken through the foreign brand prejudice. Smaller players like Pantech are still struggling with the "cheap" label. It'll be another decade or two before we'll accept Chinese brands into our lives.

Thin or Reliable. I would take reliable everytime. So that would exclude Huawei phones. Since most people put a case on their phones, what difference does it make on being the thinnest.
