The Huawei Ascend P6 is devastatingly skinny in the best possible way. The phone evokes the build quality of the iPhone 5 and HTC One, but is thinner than both, at 6.2mm. Given the fact that Huawei has yet to even officially unveil the Ascend P6, it's somewhat remarkable that we already have so many shots of the handset from so many different angles.
This might have been a source of confusion for Huawei's own Device Chairman, Richard Yu, who not only acknowledged that the newly leaked images are indeed of a P-series device, but that said device would be revealed at the company's June 18 event in London, ambiguously billed as a "moment to celebrate beauty, glamour and inspiration."
Yu posted the message to his followers on Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo, but promptly deleted the post. The leaked images come by way of notorious leakster @evleaks and appear to be official press renders of the Huawei Ascend P6.
Our first look at the P6 came in April from TENAA, which is China's analog to the FCC. That leaked, preliminary spec information indicated that the phone would sport a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage space (although some sites are reporting 32GB) and a 5-megapixel camera. The display is 4.7 inches and produces a resolution of 1,280 x 720. Additionally, the P6 is said to run an unknown version of Android Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 1.6 layered on top.
Whatever the final specs, the Huawei Ascend P6 is a gorgeous phone and unfortunately, we'll probably never see it stateside. Though the company has denied suggestions that it is shifting attention away from the U.S. market, it continues to maintain a small footprint domestically and likely won't be looking to address that with a phone launch in London.
