Huawei unveils the Ascend P6 – the world's slimmest smart phone?
Huawei has unveiled the Ascend P6 which it claims is the world’s slimmest smartphone measuring just 6.18mm.
The smartphone, which looks very similar to the iPhone 5 especially from the side (see here) features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and a metallic body.
Other key features include 4.7-inch high definition in-cell display and 5 megapixel front-facing camera.
Says Huawei’s 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.”
Weighing about 120g, the Ascend P6 incorporates Android 4.2.2 operating system, 2000mAh battery, 4.7-inch HD in-cell LCD screen technology and ‘MagicTouch’ for enhanced screen responsiveness even when wearing gloves.
As well as a 5MP front facing camera which Huawei claims is perfect for ‘selfies’, the Ascend P6 boasts an 8MP rear-facing BSI camera with F2.0 aperture and 4cm macro view. It also offers full 1080P full HD video recording and playback as well as Huawei’s proprietary IMAGESmart software which provides contrast and colour enhancement and auto scene recognition.
Huawei claims its Automated Discontinuous Reception (ADRX) and Quick Power Control (QPC) battery optimization and power saving technology improves performance by more than 30%, compared with smartphone batteries of equal size. And with its multi-screen AirSharing capability you can connect to a range of devices to boost your productivity at work or play by easily sharing documents or enhance your gaming experience with minimal lag time.
Available in black, white and pink with matching colour cases, it will begin shipping to China from June and to 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.

Haven’t they noticed that the race to be as small, light, slim as possible – “because we can” – is over …
Consumers have proved that they don’t want to sacrifice yet more battery life for some engineer’s ego. 1mm extra thickness really doesn’t matter to 99.999999999999% of customers. And, despite their claims, shaving off an extra 0.1mm or so will – inevitably – shave a few minutes off battery life.
