we are seeing a shift in smartphone build: instead of going the plastic route, many makers (with the exception of a few such as Samsung) have chosen to adopt high-quality materials. the Huawei Ascend P6 is one such latest example. clad in an all-metal body design and boasts what the Chinese firm dubbed as “impossibly thin” thickness of just 6.18 mm, the P6 is endowed with a glove-friendly 4.7-inch HD in-cell display and driven by a quad-core 1.5GHz processor with 2GB RAM. it will run off Android 4.2.2 OS, skinned with Huawei’s Emotion UI. one thing that may astound digital content-hungry folks is its meagre 8GB internal storage, which in our humble opinion is impossibly measly, though it is expandable via the microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB.
on the imaging business side, it has a main shooter with 8MP BSI sensor with macro mode (actually, only as close as 4cm) to its name, while the front sports a pretty impressive 5MP for covering your ego self-pic needs. and then there’s the AirSharing that let’s you share your digital content with multiple devices including a pal’s phone, or the TV with Media Q. other features are pretty much the usuals, including light and proximity sensors, tilt sensor, gyros, compass, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. you will have a choice of three colors – black, white and pink – to choose from when it rolls out in China from June and to Western Europe from July on. other markets will follow suit.
