Upcoming Huawei “P-series” device leaks with 6.2mm frame

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.

      You’re responding to a loser.

      What’s your point? You’re still a loser and a troll.

      At least I don’t go beaking off about things that I have no clue about. Now who’s stupid?

  • Aiden

    Huawei doesn’t even sell in Canada as far as I know. Why are you guys posting about this phone? While interesting phone news sure, but this company doesn’t even have anything to do with Canada.

    • Brad Hermann

      Yes they do. Wind mobile

    • Robin Mitchell Wakerell

      Smaller carriers like Wind, Mobilicity, Eastlink, and Videotron have carried Huawei in the past, and some still do. Do your research before you make an accusation.

    • Aiden

      Asking a question is not an accusation.

    • Samuel Gomez Recuero

      Regardless if a phone comes or not to Canada what others do in the international market could potentially affect future models for those phones that do come here.

      For those who don’t sign contracts, they can buy the phone online and ship from China directly. I had had a few already. Am using a Huawei Honor currently.
      There are people who won’t sit on their butts accepting whatever the local phone companies want them to use!

    Are we headed towards phones being as thin as a credit card? Because that makes me nervous about those times when it will accidentally wind up between our arses and our seats.

    • Samuel Gomez Recuero

      that is why they are building those flexible screens. So that our arses are not part of the equation.

    • Mindmeld

      Are they also building a flexible casing to compliment the flexible screen or will the next big leap be bezel-less phone (i.e. 100%screen)? I can see it being used to fit into a contoured handset body design but the flexibility of the screen itself will not prevent breakages if it is encased in a solid ridged body.

  • EvanKrosney

    Looks like a nice device, and you can’t beat the thinness, but like most of these other Huawei “ultra-thin” phones that we’ve seen over the years I’m not too sure that it’ll make its way to North American shores.

  • DC

    At least it’s more handsome and neat than a S4.

  • PT

    Does this model comes with a build in spy app?

  • Guyyyyyy

    HTC One is just 4mm thick on the side! ^_^ sorry, just had to say it
