Huawei Ascend G6 hands-on

Huawei unveiled the Ascend G6 - not the P7 as rumors suggested. The phone inherits the premium design of the Ascend P6, but is more affordable.

The Huawei Ascend G6 measures 130 x 65mm, a few millimeters shorter and narrower than the P6. It's a little thicker, but still one of the thinnest phones around at just 7.5mm.

Anyway, the G6 has a 4.5" LCD screen of qHD resolution (540 x 960, 245ppi). It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on a HiSilicon chipset (quad-core processor at 1.2GHz with 1GB RAM). The phone has a 2,000mAh battery.

The phone has an 8MP / 720p camera on the back with an infrared filter, f/2.0 aperture and a Sony sensor. The 5MP front-facer comes with an 88° wide-angle lens.

The Ascend G6 will launch this quarter with 3G network support. Later on, Huawei is to release an LTE-enabled, slightly thicker version of the phone too. The LTE model will cost €250, pricing for the 3G model is unclear at the moment.

The design is similar to the Ascend P6

The accessories available for the handset include a Bluetooth headset, wireless speakers and a power pack.
