The smartphone is in fact a bit thicker than its predecessor by 0.3mm and the similar 2,000mAh battery which powered the Ascend P6 powers it as well.
As the device comes with a dual SIM support, it is pretty obvious that it is most probably targeted to the emerging markets like China and India. But the company has not disclosed any information about the availability of the device outside china.
In China where it is already selling, the Ascend P6 S is currently available on Vmall (Huawei's own web store) and is available only on China Unicom. It is priced at 2,700 Yuan (approx. Rs. 27,478) in the native market.
In India, the company has been progressing in a rapid manner. Almost all of its devices have been coming to India and the company's popular Ascend Mate devices are also available in India along with the Ascend P6 smartphone. However, if the latest dual SIM Ascend P6 S is planned for other markets outside China, it will definitely come to India's fast moving smartphone market.
