Johannes Knapp is currently at the Huawei launch event in London right now for what the Chinese company is marketing as the world's thinnest smartphone. Let's discuss the Ascend P6 a little.

In our hands-on video which is embedded above, you'll get a great close-up look at the new P6. As far as specs go, it includes a decently sized 4.7-inch 720p display and is powered by a Hisense 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of onboard memory and an 8GB ROM. There is also a microSD card slot for expanding the storage capabilities. Inside the phone is a 2000 mAh battery and it comes installed with Android 4.2.2.


Besides the fact that the device is super thin, Huawei is also making a big deal about the camera capabilities of the new device. Included is an 8 megapixel camera on the back for up to 1080p videos and on the front is a really impressive 5 megapixel camera for chatting at up to 720p. Johannes noted in our video above that the camera quality is excellent, with nice vibrant colors - Huawei is setting this device to compete against Samsung's S4 and Apple's iPhone 5, and initial impressions seem pretty solid.


We're going to reach out to Huawei for a review sample, so we can give you a full look. Stay tuned for that!
