Huawei Philippines just launched the world’s slimmest smartphone, the Ascend P6 which measures just 6.18mm thin and it’s really beautiful.
The Huawei Ascend P6 somehow looks like a big iPhone 5 (especially the white one) with its slim body and aluminum band around the side and the subtle round corners. Okay not really the iPhone once you reach its curved base. Hehehe. Still, it feels nice to hold if you’re a fan of slim and elegant phones. This device weighs just about 120g.
It has a 4.7-inch HD in-cell LCD screen technology with Magic Touch so the screen is still responsive even with gloved fingers. It’s also protected by Gorilla Glass.
The Ascend P6 is powered by Huawei’s own 1.5GHz quad-core processor to go with 2GB RAM and 8GB internal storage, half of which is probably dedicated to its Emotion UI and built-in features. It does have a microSD slot which is something that’s often sacrificed on such a slim device.
The back has an 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 lens and BSI sensor. It supports macro shots of up to 4cm and can do full HD video recording while capturing stills at the same time. There’s also a 5-megapixel front camera which features auto facial-enhancing capabilities for the less photoshop-savvy people.
The phone also has a 2000mAh battery and along with Huawei’s unique Automated Discontinuous Reception (ADRX) and Quick Power Control (QPC) battery optimization and power saving technology, battery performance is improved by more than 30%. Should be interesting to keep track while doing the review.
Anyway, the Huawei Ascend P6 is now available for Php18,990. You can also get in from Globe for as low as P999 monthly at Plan 499 for 24 months, or Plan 999 with a P200 monthly cash-out for 24 months.
