At 6.18mm, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 is small enough to slip into the slimmest of pockets or tiniest of clutch bags

Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, recently unveiled the HUAWEI Ascend P6 Pink, just in time for summer.

The HUAWEI Ascend P6, launch locally in August this year in black and white, has been labelled as one of the world’s slimmest smartphones measuring a mere 6.18mm making it perfect to slip in to any handbag or fashion clutch, or even the skinniest of jeans pockets.

The smartphone features an Android 4.2.2 operating system, 2000mAh battery, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and a sleek metallic body. With its 4.7-inch high definition in-cell display, industry-leading 5MP front-facing camera, and outstanding software, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 is the embodiment of elegance with an edge. It also features ‘MagicTouch’ for enhanced screen responsiveness even when wearing gloves, making it the perfect accessory to take along to special dinners or on chilly evenings in Africa.

“Based on our market research, the pink colour has proven to be most popular amongst women of all age groups and backgrounds, and in some cases more popular than the standard black or white,” said Liza de Wet, Marketing Director of Huawei Device: South Africa Region. ”The shade of pink used is subtle yet elegant, ensuring a more premium look.”

As the flagship smartphone of the Huawei Ascend P series, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 embodies a cutting edge design for the fashion conscious. The smartphone’s brushed metallic look with a naturally curved base is both elegant and intuitive. Impossibly beautiful, the Ascend P6 balances fashionable features and user-friendly functions.

Perfect for ‘selfies’, the HUAWEI Ascend P6’s industry-leading 5MP front-facing camera and auto facial-enhancing capabilities create model-gorgeous shots you’ll want to share. Its 8MP rear-facing BSI camera with F2.0 aperture and 4cm macro view also enables 1080P full HD video recording and playback. With Huawei’s proprietary IMAGESmart software, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 turns even the most novice photographer into a professional, with contrast and colour enhancement, auto scene recognition, object tracing focus, and instant facial beauty support.

The HUAWEI Ascend P6 is even more intuitive and able to be customised with Huawei’s Emotion UI. Inspired by people, for device users worldwide, Huawei has gathered input from over 5 million consumers to help us optimise the latest version of Emotion UI. The proprietary user interface includes updates to Uni-Home, including enhanced security, Huawei’s Me Widget, MagicTouch, and SmartReading. New to Huawei’s Emotion UI are the panoramic shot and facial recognition photography functions.

Huawei’s unique Automated Discontinuous Reception (ADRX) and Quick Power Control (QPC) battery optimisation and power saving technology improves performance by more than 30%, compared with smartphone batteries of equal size. With its multi-screen AirSharing capability, you can connect to a range of devices to boost your productivity at work or play by easily sharing documents, or enhance your gaming experience with minimal lag time.

The pink version is available in South Africa through Vodacom Shops and Edgars stores nationwide at a retail price of approximately R5 000.

The HUAWEI Ascend P6 Pink will also be available later this quarter in Kenya, The Republic of Congo, Zambia and Mauritius.
