Huawei Ascend P6 leak reveals slender 6.18mm frame and stylish design
The Huawei Ascend P6 may be one of the most thoroughly leaked smartphones ever. We’ve seen official renders, pricing information, benchmark results, live photos and now full specifications. Let’s have a look at Huawei’s latest high-end smartphone.
First, the specifications, courtesy of the capricious @evleaks. They’ve stated that we’ll see a 4.7″ 720p display (sorry, 1080p fans) and a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor – likely MediaTek or one of their own design – in a rather startling thin 6.18 mm design. There’s also slated to be a rear-facing camera at 8 megapixels and an overpowered 5 megapixel front-facing camera with a Purikura-style ‘Face Enhance’ feature.
Earlier leaks also mentioned 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage plus a micro SD slot and a 2,000 mAh battery. All together that would put the Ascend P6 behind true top-of-the-line smartphones like the Galaxy S4 or HTC One, but still good enough to be a highly desirable smartphone.
The phone looks like it’ll be running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, with Huawei’s custom Emotion UI on top. We’ve seen a couple of different styles for that UI, so chances are that there are a few good themes available. Beyond a new look, not much is known about any special software features included.
The smartphone is expected to be revealed in London on June 18th – just five days away – during a ‘Beauty’ event that celebrates “beauty, glamour and inspiration.” The theme makes sense inasmuch as thin is fashionable, but I’m intrigued to see if that commitment is more than skin-deep.
