The Huawei Ascend P6, the company’s new flagship device, now has a price tag, after being made official yesterday.
The handset, which has been first seen in a filing with the Chinese version of the FCC, has been made available for pre-order by Carphone Warehouse and, while it’s not as cheap as previously rumored, it still has a price tag that makes it pretty interesting, if you take a look at its specs. The Ascend P6 costs £329.95 SIM-free or around $516.
Carphone Warehouse also offers it free with a monthly deal that starts at £21 per month, and also as an upgrade to your current phone (still free with a plan starting at £21 per month). Another important thing for you to know, if you’re planning on purchasing the Huawei Ascend P6 from Carphone Warehouse, is that the device is expected to arrive on July 4, so you won’t get your hands on it until then.
In terms of colors, you can currently choose between white and black – there’s a pink version, too, but it’s not available for pre-order at Carphone Warehouse just yet.
What do you get for your money? Well, you get a very slim smartphone – at only 6.18 millimeters thickness and with a weight of 120 grams – which also includes some pretty good specs, starting with a 4.7-inch screen with HD resolution.
The device is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor, as well as 2GB of RAM and has 8GB of internal storage, which can be added to using a microSD card. The rear camera is an 8-megapixel one, while the front one has a 5-megapixel resolution (one that enhances “selfies,” if you’re a fan of that). As for the battery, we’re looking at a 2000mAh one.
What do you think of the Huawei Ascend P6’s price? Will you buy the device?
