Huawei announced world’s slimmest phone, Ascend P6

Yesterday Huawei announced its latest flagship device Ascend P6 at a press event held in London. The new device was in rumors since the begining of this year, specifications and images of this device were already leaked as well as Huawei CEO Richard Yu gave many hints about the device at the CES and other events and recently Huawei uploaded a teaser video of the product launch.


Huawei Ascend P6’s main attraction is its slim body which is just 6.18mm thin, making it world’s slimmest smartphone yet. The design takes most if its inspiration from iPhone but still it doesn’t look like a copied product. The curved bottom and use of brushed aluminum set it apart from the competitors.
