Popular low-cost handset manufacturer Huawei has unveiled the Huawei Ascend P6 at a London press event, which boasts the title of the world’s slimmest handset.
Huawei’s claim is on a phone that measures just 6.18mm thin, while still housing a 4.7-inch in-cell screen.
This is with its ‘MagicTouch’, which is said to offer an enhanced responsiveness, even when wearing gloves.
It is also powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, with a 5-megapixel front facing camera and an 8MP rear-facing snapper.
The latter is a BSI camera, with F2.0 aperture and 4cm macro view, enabling 1080P full HD video recording and playback.
That is with the proprietary IMAGESmart software, said to turn even the most novice photographer into a professional.
The P6 weighs in at 120g, with a 2,000mAh battery and runs from the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, with a new version of the company’s Emotion UI.
“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.
Huawei’s Ascend P6 will be available between June and July with Vodafone, Telefonica, Orange, H3G, O2, Carphone Warehouse, and TalkTalk – in black, white and pink, with matching colour cases – for 449 Euros (£383).
Initially, the shipping versions are non-4G, but the P6 range will be updated later in the year to 4G.
