Huawei Ascend P6: World’s slimmest smartphone comes to India

Huawei isn’t known for its smartphones, but is slowly developing a reputation of its own. There are a total of 9 smartphones which are being sold in India, out of which the Huawei Ascend P6 has created a buzz by being the slimmest smartphone in the world.

Huawei is taking a different direction by keeping more emphasis on design rather than competing in the specification war. With the phone being just 6.18mm in thickness it is also very light with it weighing at just about 120g. That being said Huawei offers powerful specifications to go along with the sleek look, powered with a 1.5GHz quad core processor to support the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. The phone has 2GB of RAM and 8GB internal memory which can be extended to 32GB.

The primary camera is 8MP while the secondary camera is 5MP. The camera supports a Full HD 1080p video playback. The camera is embedded with a feature called as IMAGESmart which gives the feel of the professional quality pictures even from the most novice users.

The screen is a standard 4.7inch which uses LCD screen Technology. Huawei has battery on the slightly lower side of 2000mAh but the company has added Automated Discontinuous Reception (ADRX) and Quick Power Control (QPC) techniques which optimizes battery power and saves as much as 30% more than usual.

Commenting on the launch, Victor Shanxin, President, Huawei Devices India said, “The Ascend P6 has already received a tremendous response from global consumers over the last few months, offering unsurpassed technology with a design that is simply stunning. The phone has also been awarded the title of ‘European Consumer Smartphone 2013 – 2014′ by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA). Globally recognized for its R&D strength and innovation, Huawei has made a significant mark in the smartphone segment and is looking to advance its position amongst the top five smartphone brands globally.”
