Huawei Ascend P6: The world’s slimmest smartphone


Huawei, Chinese telecommunications equipment maker, has launched slimmest smartphone ever in the world.

This phone, dubbed Ascend P6, is 6.18mm-thick. Ascend P6 has 4.7-inch LCD display with in-cell 1,280 x 720 pixels, 1.5GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB RAM. This phone has Android 4.2.2 with Huawei’s customary Emotion UI. It has an in-built 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot enabling the user to extend the memory up to 32GB. 8-megapixel camera having F/2.0 BSI lens with a 4cm macro is the primary camera of the phone while there is a 5-megapixel shooter up front. Dolby Digital Plus sound supports the sounding system of the phone. 2,000mAh battery and GSM/UMTS/HSPA+ radios enhance the specifications of the phone. LTE version of the phone would be available by the fourth quarter.

“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,” Richard Yu, Chief Executive Officer, Huawei Consumer Business Group, said in a statement. “Building on the success of our Ascend P series of fashion smartphones, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 provides unsurpassed technology and a design that is simply stunning.”

Ascend P6 will be available in black, white and pink colors.

Although it is slimmest phone in the phone market but not the lightest phone. It is slightly heavy than iPhone 5 as it has weight of 120 grams i.e. 8 grams more than 7.6mm-thick iPhone 5.

This phone will reportedly be launched in China this month and in Western Europe and 19 other countries by the next month.




华为去年的营收达到2200亿元人民币(约合358亿美元),该公司对国际市场有着远大的抱负。今年6月,他们在伦敦推出了一款名为Ascend P6的手机。P6向苹果公司和三星借鉴了很多元素,机身却仅厚6毫米。Ascend P6虽然无法支持4G网络,但售价远低于iPhone 5和Galaxy S4,在中国市场的价格约为430美元。

  华为计划将这款手机销往100个国家,包括中国和很多欧洲市场,但至少现在不会在美国出售。美国政府曾经指控该公司的网络设备可能威胁其国家安全。
