Huawei has already launched and begins to sell its ultra-thin Ascend P6 S smartphones and the device is spotted at Huawei’s Chinese online store – VMALL.
The listing shows that the device is 0.3mm thicker than the regular Ascend P6 variant – still the thickness is only 6.5mm. With the same 2,000mAh battery capacity, the S variant of the Ascend P6 features a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, which is upgraded from 1.5GHz K3V2 CPU.
This means that the previous speculations regarding the Huawei President’s confirming of true 8-core MTK6592 processor in Ascend P6S is gone wrong, or the same processor model comes with the quad-core chipset.
The 4.7-inch device comes with a LCD 720p HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal phone storage space, 8-megapixel rear camera and an impressive 5-megapixel front camera. The new device won’t support the LTE networks, but it’s a dual-SIM (similar to the precious model) with dual-standby feature.
Currently selling only for China Unicom, the Huawei Ascend P6 S comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Emotion UI 2.0 on top of it, but the specifications are well qualified for the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update, so the chance is very high for the update, may be very soon.
Huawei selling this smartphone for ¥ 2,688 (CNY), which could come around $445 in U.S. and €328 in U.K. Meanwhile, the company is giving a ¥ 300 CNY ($50/€36) offer for the customers along with a Huawei P6 headset dock until 21st January (tomorrow). The price is almost same as the Huawei Ascend Mate, which started off last week and the current price level also comes close to the regular Ascend P6’s ¥ 2,400 (CNY) price tag.
