Huawei Ascend P6 Release Date

As you probably know (or not), Huawei is on the verge of launching one of its most important products for 2013, as the Ascend P6 smartphone will be officially revealed on June 18th. According to the official statements, the Huawei Ascend P6 aims very high, as the Chinese phone maker says that its new flagship smartphone can outmatch competitors like iPhone 5S or Samsung Galaxy S4.

Huawei Ascend P6 is now officially confirmed and we will be able to see the smartphone in flesh on June 18th. The new smartphone model leaked online several times over the past few weeks and the official picture of the Ascend P6 reveals a thin and very attractive design, with a body build almost entirely of aluminium.

Another impressive aspect of the Huawei Ascend P6, even though not officially confirmed, is that it was reported that the flagship smartphone of the Chinese company will have support for two SIM cards.

It’s not the first we see pictures of the Huawei Ascend P6 as there were some leaked shots of the flagship device hitting the web a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, the Ascend P6 has a design that is amazingly close to the one of the iPhone 5, an aspect that is also visible in picture posted on the official Facebook page of the Chinese phone maker.

In other words, the model comes with a new version of the company’s proprietary Android user interface, called Emotion UI, which will also integrate a series of special features.

The first rumors were indicating that the Huawei Ascend P6 will be only 6.2 mm thick and that it will boast a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, but after the Chinese company said that the smartphone’s display will be able to compete against its rivals, we can’t help but speculate that the new flagship smartphone will sport a full HD screen. It is also rumored that Ascend P6 will be powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz Huawei K3V2 processor and that it will have 32 GB of internal storage, 2 GB of RAM and microSD card slot (up to 64 GB supported).

Sources say that the new Huawei flagship will come with a 13 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, HDR, and, of course, full HD video recording support. It seems that P6 will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
