Huawei introduces world's thinnest smartphone 'Ascend P6'

London, June 19 (ANI): China's telecom giant has unveiled the world's slimmest android-based smartphone- Ascend P6.

The smarthphone is 6.18mm thick and has a 5 megapixel front camera for high quality self portraits.

Huawei stated that it has 4.7in screen and is more than 3mm thin.

If compared to the iphone 5 and the Alcatel One Idol Ultra which are known to be the slimmest phones yet, Ascend P6 is slimmer but weighs a bit more.

With 8 gigabytes of internal storage, 1.5GHz quad-core processor and Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 operating system, the phone features Huawei's own user interface and even includes an "auto facial enhancement" tool to create better self portraits, the BBC reports.

Huawei said with the use of various power saving technologies, the device's battery lasts upto 30 percent longer as it would otherwise.

Shao Yang, chief marketing officer for Huawei Device, is expecting this phone to do miraculous growth for the brand.

Ben Wood director of research at consultancy CCS Insight, expresses that keeping in mind the design and quality, this is the best phone launched by Huawei.

An analyst praised it for the design but said that its lack of support for 4G network will make its sale limited.

With Samsung and Apple who have captured most of the android phones market, Huawei is still expecting to sell double than last year. (ANI)
