blog We’ve been gradually getting more impressed with the Android efforts which Chinese electronics giant Huawei has been coming up with over the past several years. From near-obscurity in the Australian market, the company has gradually gotten to the point where its smartphones are in consideration amongst our circle of geek friends and colleagues, although of course they’re still playing second or third fiddle to more dominant brands such as Apple, Samsung and HTC. If we may so, the company’s latest effort announced overnight, the Ascend P6, is likely to continue to push the company forward. And, as Ausdroid reported, based on Huawei’s launch of the P6 in London overnight, the handset should be coming to Australia “by July”.
The P6′s biggest claim to fame is Huawei’s statement that it’s the thinnest smartphone in the world, with a thickness of just 6.18mm (for reference, both the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4 are a little thicker at 7.6 and 7.9mm respectively). It also weighs very little — 120g, just a little heavier than the iPhone 5 at 112, and significantly lighter than almost any other ‘superphone’ on the market.
However, it also manages to pack a lot into that light, slim form factor. You get a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, a 4.7″ at 1280×720, the latest version 4.2.2 of Android (although it’s not ‘stock Android’, unfortunately — you get Huawei’s light Emotion UI on top), 2GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage and support for microSD cards up to 32GB, an 8 megapixel back camera and five megapixel front camera and more. The battery is a 2000mAh model. It doesn’t appear as though there’s 4G support for the P6, which is a major downer for the phone. Continue…
