Huawei Ascend P6

Huawei Ascend P6 benchmarks show lackluster performance

Today Huawei officially announced their new flagship and "world's thinnest" smartphone in the Ascend P6. During their beauty event this morning in London they revealed all of the details on this 6.1mm thin smartphone, and it's stunning design. While looks are important, they aren't everything, so we ran a few benchmarks to see how well this pretty face performs. Check it out below.

Huawei Ascend P6 “Beauty Shot” hands-on demo shows smooth-skin oddity

With Huawe's newest smartphone effort comes the newest edition of their "Emotion" user interface, this bringing with it their IMAGESmart software and a feature called "Beauty Shot." This feature comes with the Huawei Ascend P6 and has the ability to bring about, as Huawei notes, "instant facial beauty." What we've found, on the other hand, is that there's no two ways about it: this software changes the basic structure of your face and makes the user look... downright strange.

Huawei Ascend P6 hands-on

It's time to get a closer look at what's currently the world's thinnest smartphone in the Huawei Ascend P6. This device is made by the company to be both the world's slimmest and their premiere release - it's the hero strategy spreading across the world, hitting Huawei with a device that'll be coming in black, white, and pink, too. The pink edition is especially unique, of course, with not only pink plastic and metal up front (the plastic existing under glass, of course), but a pink metal rim, as well.

Huawei Ascend P6 official as world’s thinnest smartphone

The device has emerged: Huawei's newest smartphone is the world's thinnest, and the big H can once again claim a victory (in at least that respect). Here the Huawei Ascend P6 works with a 6.18mm thin body and a 4.7-inch display with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor under the hood. Inside also is a unique version of Android created specifically for this device by the folks at Huawei - and what's that? A 5-megapixel camera on the front?

Huawei Ascend P6 spec leak tips a 6.5mm thickness

Huawei has shared a few images of the Ascend P6 smartphone, however much of what we have seen regarding the handset remains rumor at this point. One of the key points has come in with the thickness, which in this case was expected to be 6.2mm. Huawei has yet to confirm that measurement but a newly set of leaked specs suggests that may not be the way the handset is announced.

Huawei Ascend P6 talked up by CEO Richard Yu

We are still expecting Huawei to announce the Ascend P6 during the upcoming "Beauty" event. This is set for June 20th, however in the meantime we have been seeing quite a few leaks. Thankfully though we have also seen a few legitimate teasers direct from Huawei. Back towards the end of May we saw an image revealed. That image reveal was also the time when Huawei confirmed the upcoming event would be the unveiling of the Ascend P6.
