Huawei announces its latest flagship model the Ascend P6

Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Huawei revealed details about its upcoming flagship model, the Huawei Ascend P6, on the firm’s official Facebook page.

The Facebook post did not offer any photos of the device, much to the dismay of Huawei fans. The announcement did, however, promise that the “upcoming release of the flagship Huawei P6 will WOW all customers. Huawei used the best materials and components, did amounts of reliability testing and invested a lot into the Huawei Ascend P6.” 

Whilst Huawei is still a relatively unknown mobile phone manufacturer in the UK, rumours amongst fans and critics alike have been rife over the past few months. The most widespread rumour suggests that the Huawei Ascend P6 will become the world’s slimmest smartphone, allegedly measuring just 6.18mm in depth. This compares to the iPhone 5, which currently has a thickness of 7.6mm and the new Samsung Galaxy S4 which measures in at 7.9mm thick.

Again, no concrete details were revealed with Huawei’s Facebook post, though it has been suggested that the Ascend P6’s grand reveal could take place at the Huawei P Series event in London on June 18th.
