It’s been long time since we first heard the rumors that Huawei would soon unveil the Ascend P6, and with press shots, specs and videos leaked on the net, it has been more or less guaranteed from start.
However now the rumors are finally over, Huawei have today officially unveiled the launch of the Ascend P6 during their press event earlier today.
Measuring just 6.18mm thick and weighing 120 grams, the phone itself is pretty slim, however it still includes decent enough specs, packing a 4.7 inch LCD Gorilla Glass 2 touchscreen display, with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution and a new 1.5GHz quad-core processor.
Alongside which the P6 also includes 2GB of RAM, with 8GB of in-built storage, as well as a dual-SIM card slot, however in the UK this will become a microSD card slot, allowing for up to 32GB of expansion.
This is joined with a 2,000mAh battery, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as well as a 8MP Exmor sensor from Sony on the back, with a f/2.0 aperture, BSI and a 4cm macro view,that can shoot at Full HD 1080p resolution. On the front you will also find a 5 megapixel camera.
The P6 will run on Android 4.2.2 with Huawei’s Emotion UI overlay, and will be available in white and black, with a pink version launching in the future.
O2 and Carphone Warehouse are the first to announce availability for the handset, expected to launch in July for around £25 a month.
