Two weeks ago, we showed you the first few photos of Huawei’s upcoming Ascend P6 smartphone. It is currently the world’s thinnest smartphone at 6.5mm, and it’s looking quite interesting — not to mention the design looks awfully familiar from its profile. Today, we have an entirely new set of photos to show you along with one new piece of information: it will be available in white, as well as pink.
Back when the Huawei Ascend P6 first surfaced online, we saw it in black trim. Now we have photos of what is said to be a prototype unit decked out in white, showing the device itself and its standard home screen. The custom skin that Huawei decided to put on top of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean — the version of Android that is said to be its default operating system — looks different from the usual, to say the least. You may or may not like it. For now, all we can say is that the overall theme appears to be very conservative. There aren’t that many design elements that jump at you when you first look at it.
With that said, the Ascend P6 does have one very noticeable thing going for it in terms of design, and that is its lack of a homescreen button underneath its display. You can see this not just through the live photo above but also on the leaked Ascend P6 photos posted by Twitter user @evleaks.
It is through these new leaked photos that we learn of the Huawei Ascend P6’s pink-colored version, and it is expected that Huawei will launch all three different color versions on the day of the handset’s official announcement. We’re still not sure exactly when that would be, but it could happen next month, what with there being COMPUTEX plus a special Huawei-only press event happening in the third week of June.
What do you think of the Huawei Ascend P6 so far? Do you think will serve Huawei well in its quest to conquer the Android market? We’ll be sure to bring you more info as they become available.
