Whilst Huawei is still a relatively little heard of name in the UK, the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer really is breaking into the market, this time by releasing the world’s thinnest smartphone.
Details of the Huawei P6-UO6 have been leaked online, and suggest that the device could measure just over 32 x 65 x 6.18mm, which would make the Ascend P6 thinner than the iPhone 5’s 7.6mm thickness, the Samsung Galaxy S4’s 7.9mm depth and the- seemingly chunky in comparison- HTC One’s 9.3mm body.
In fact, the Huawei Ascend P6's miniscule dimensions could even steal the crown from the world's current smallest smartphone, the Alcatel One Idol Ultra, which is just 7.1mm thick.
It's also probable that if the Huawei Ascend P6 is to become wthe world's slimmest phone, it might also work its way into the record books for being one of the world's lightest smartphones. Although the top 5 lightest smartphones currently include the Nokia Lumia 720, HTC One S, Alcatel One Idol Ultra, iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. But alongside smartphone screens getting larger, users are increasingly expecting lighter handsets, which is where the Huawei could win over the UK crowds.
Dimensions aside, the alleged Huawei Ascend P6 will feature a 4.7 inch touchscreen and will be powered by an impressive 1.5GHz processor with 2GB of RAM. Huawei unveiled its latest offerings in the form of the Ascends Mate and Ascend D2 at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The devices, which offer a range of high quality specs which could rival the best of its competitors, are gaining more credit in the mobile phone industry.
Though little else is known about Huawei’s new device, the Ascend P6, it seems that the Chinese manufacturer could land itself on the mobile phone map in the UK once and for all.
