An upcoming Huawei device boasting a frame of just 6.18mm thick has leaked via China’s telecommunication certification center.
The phone looks to be part of the venerable Huawei P-series, which has kept a fairly low profile since its launch in 2012. The first in line, the Ascend P1, had a frame of just 7.69mm, but offered specs comparable to many of the high-end devices on the market at the time.
This model, which goes by the codename P6-U06, is not the recently-announced Ascend P2 which, at 8.4mm, is quite a bit thicker than this one. It boasts dimensions of 132.6 x 65.5 x 6.18mm and is a lithe 120g.
The Chinese-based OEM also announced the 1080p Ascend D2 at CES this year along with a massive 6.1-inch Ascend Mate, but has been fairly quiet since then.
We can see the Ascend P2 coming to either Wind Mobile or Mobilicity as a low-cost alternative to the more-expensive Samsungs and Sony’s. This device, which could launch as the Ascend P2 Lite or Mini, has similar specs, with a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, an 8MP camera and it will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean at launch.
What do you think? Is this a phone you’d wait for? It looks pretty nice.
