Huawei, a Chinese brand known mostly for budget Android handsets, seems to be aiming to push itself upmarket with the Ascend P6, due to be unveiled on Tuesday (via Android Community).

The rumored specs are pretty decent – a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, 4.7-inch 720p screen, 8GB of internal storage, 5MP 720p front-facing camera and 8MP 1080p rear one – but Huawei is mostly focusing attention on the aesthetics, promising that the phone will be both beautiful and ultra-thin … 


Initial rumors suggested it would be just 6.2mm (0.24 inches), while it now appears it will be 6.5mm (0.25 inches), but that’s still pretty darned thin. No information is yet known on pricing or markets, but Huawei is touting it as a ‘global’ launch.
