China's ultimate tech vendor Huawei continues to march ahead in the race of global smartphone tally with products like Ascend Mate and Ascend D2. Well, we have seen limited number of launches in India so far.
Meanwhile, the Ascend Mate, a 6-inch 720p HD phablet was launched in a glitzy event, back in June 2013. Since then, GizBot was anxiously waiting for Huawei to announce new devices in a crowded handset market like India. Meanwhile, Huawei unveiled its big-ticket smartphone - Ascend P6 in a London event. It's the most stylized handset ever made by Huawei.
Today, GizBot had an interation with Victor Shan, President, India Device Business Department at Huawei India. Few days back, an Indian tech portal published a report saying that Huawei was coming with Ascend P6 in August 2013.
We checked Huawei India site simultaneously to get a clue about the listing of the device. In the meantime, neither of the leading online shopping portals has started taking pre-orders. But some sites have mentioned that Ascend P6 is a forthcoming product.
But that does not mean that Huawei Ascend P6 is really coming to India in August. GizBot went ahead and put this question in front of Mr. Shan. The high profile executive over at Huawei India told us that Ascend P6 is set to land in India later in September or early October. However, Shan declined to comment on the Indian pricing of the device.
The Huawei Ascend P6 is a high-end smartphone with motive to rule leading International handset markets. The Ascend P6 is competing with likes of Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One and recently announced LG G2. The main highlight of the Ascend P6 is its build-quality. The device is one of the slimmest ever smartphone launched.
The phone measures 6.18mm thick. It has a 4.7-inch HD display, an 8-mega pixel rear facing camera with Auto Focus and LED Flash. There's a 5-mega pixel camera on the front too. The device comes with a 1.5 GHZ quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory (expandable). Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean comes out of the box with Emotion UI on the top of it.
Other connectivity options are standard. It is not known, whether India gets dual -SIM version of Ascend P6 or not. As per GizBot estimate, the Huawei Ascend P6 should be priced between Rs. 30,990 - Rs. 32,990.
Update - We have just got an updated information by a senior most executive over at Huawei India that Huawei Ascend P6 will be unveiled in India in the first week of September. When we say, it is coming in India by late September or early October, it means; the device will be landing in stores around the same time.
