The thinnest smartphone in the world, according to specs from the Chinese version of the FCC (TENAA), the Huawei Ascend P6-U06, seems to also have a black version.

Or at least that’s what you would tend to believe by looking at the pictures French site NowherEelse has posted, which, the same source says, come from an anonymous reader. While, as any anonymous tip, this one should be taken with a grain of salt, the smartphone in the images looks remarkably similar to the one in the TENAA pictures, as you can see in the images below.

While it indeed does look very thin (6.18 millimeters is the value mentioned in the previous information), it also bears a bit of a resemblance to the iPhone 5, as the guys at NowherEelse have noticed, too.

The similarity is even more visible (and so is the thickness) in this other image, showing the smartphone’s profile.

The Huawei Ascend P6-U06 has no release date yet, and there is only unofficial information about it at the moment. According to the previous reports, apart from the fact that it will be the thinnest smartphone in the world, beating the Alcatel One Touch Idol in the race for that title, it is said to be a dual SIM smartphone, with a 4.7-inch 720p touchscreen. The CPU is said to be a 1.5GHz quad-core one, coupled with 2GB of RAM (internal memory is 32GB), and the smartphone is running Android 4.1.2.

No words on price or availability yet, but maybe Huawei will think about bringing it to the rest of the world, too.
