Huawei debuts world's thinnest smartphone – the Ascend P6

huweai ascend skinny.pngHuawei has come up with some surprises over the last few months and here’s yet another. The Ascend P6, which it debuted today, is the thinnest smartphone ever created. The 4.7inch screen mobile comes in at just 6.18mm, which is slimmer than all its rivals. Incidentally the phone to get anywhere near that is the Xperia Z Ultra from Sony which rumoured to be 6.5mm but you will have to wait for that one.

Other features include a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 5MP front-facing camera (an industry record), Android 4.2.2 operating system, 2000mAh battery,and a shed load of software. It has a pretty nifty 8MP rear facing camera too that has F2.0 aperture and 4cm macro view and also enables 1080P full HD video recording and playback.

It also boasts ‘MagicTouch’ which mans users can operate the smartphone even when wearing gloves. It is also wrapped in rather striking metallic body too

“The HUAWEI Ascend P6 is a star among smartphones with its industry-leading design, high-quality camera, and intuitive user interface, Huawei’s proprietary Emotion UI,” said Richard Yu, Chief Executive Officer, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Building on the success of our Ascend P series of fashion smartphones, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 provides unsurpassed technology and a design that is simply stunning.”

It is available in black, white and pink with matching color cases and will begin shipping in Western Europe from July through Vodafone, Telefonica, Orange, H3G, O2, Carphone Warehouse, TalkTalk, Media Markt & Saturn, TIM and online via Amazon and CDiscount with other markets to follow.
