We’re not exactly strangers with the Huawei Ascend P6 thanks to the string of leaks that the device has appeared in recently, but today’s the day that Huawei has given us a formal introduction to its newest Android smartphone. Announced at a press event in London this morning, the Ascend P6 features a body that’s 6.18mm thick, making it even thinner than the 6.68mm Ascend P1S that Huawei debuted last year.
Packed into the Ascend P6′s crazy-thin frame is a 4.7-inch HD display that features Huawei’s “MagicTouch” tech for increased touch responsiveness, even if the user is wearing gloves. There’s also a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2,000mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean running beneath Huawei’s Emotion UI, which includes software add-ons like a Me Widget, enhanced security and new camera features like panoramic shooting and facial recognition.
Speaking of cameras, the Ascend P6 features a 5-megapixel shooter crammed into its frontside as well as an 8-megapixel BSI rear camera with F2.0 aperture and 4cm macro view.
