This is one case where expectation and reality do not meet eye to eye. Huawei has, without fuss or fanfare, made the Ascend P6S available on its online store, and it is not the interesting smartphone that some have been hoping for.
The Huawei Ascend P6 is a solid device, and should be even better when the company updates to Android 4.4 sometime in January. As hardware specs plateau, one frontier remains for handset makers: the processor. Qualcomm has the Android market firmly entrenched in their Snapdragon processors, but a new breed is coming.
Huawei is apparently preparing a new variant of its recently launched Huawei Ascend P6 and it's packing quite a punch, relatively speaking. The new Huawei P6S will be sporting an upgraded processor that almost doubles its predecessor's benchmark performance.
The Huawei Ascend P6 was inspired by beauty according to the Chinese company, and is currently holding the crown for the "world's thinnest smartphone" on the market coming in at just 6.18mm thin. Announced back in July we've had a few weeks to enjoy this sleek and unique device, test out the camera, and enjoy having a phone thinner than a pencil in our pocket. So read on for our full thoughts, impressions, and loads of pictures.

It's currently the "world's thinnest smartphone" coming in at just 6.18mm thin, known as the Huawei Ascend P6 smartphone. We saw this phone plenty last month when it was initially announced, but today we'll be taking a close look at this super thin phone. One that still manages to pack a quad-core processor and a 4.7-inch 720p HD display.
The HTC and Samsung Google Edition handsets arrived in the Play Store earlier in the week and while there has been rumors of similar handsets from other manufacturers, it now looks as if there may be one coming from Huawei.
