Huawei Ascend P6 teased by official Facebook page

Huawei has posted a Huawei Ascend P6 teaser on its official Facebook page, the first official mention of its upcoming flagship.

The Taiwanese company has written a Facebook post on its official page entitled “Ascend P6 Story”, revealing that there is an “upcoming release of the flagship Huawei Ascend P6.”

Posted today, the Facebook update is the first time Huawei has given any official details of its next flagship, despite a wealth of online rumours.

“We believe that upcoming release of the flagship Huawei P6 will WOW all customers”, reads the post on the official Huawei Facebook page. “Huawei used the best materials and components, did amounts of reliability testing and invested a lot into the Huawei Ascend P6.”

Failing to include an image of the upcoming flagship, Huawei instead posted a cryptic trio of photos of what looks to be a room covered in spiked insulation alongside two yellow busts.

“Consumers often can’t imagine the amount of time and work it [sic] goes into creating such a phone. We never really had a chance to explain to the consumers that we are the best, but in fact let the phone sell itself.”

Perhaps detailing the testing process for the upcoming Huawei Ascend P6, the images give little away about the smartphone’s design.

Heavily tipped to become the world’s thinnest smartphone, the Huawei Ascend P6 could boast dimensions of 132.6 x 65.5 x 6.18mm.

Previous leaks suggest the smartphone will have a 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM. As for screen size, it could have a 4.7-inch HD display of unknown resolutions.

Due to its impossibly thin body, which shaves millimetres off the market leading Samsung Galaxy S4 (7.9mm) and iPhone 5 (7.6mm), it could only pack a 5-megapixel camera.

A Huawei Ascend P6 release date was tipped for a dedicated P-Series Huawei event on June 18 in London.
