Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei is said to be working on the launch of the world’s thinnest smartphone.
The smartphone, supposedly called Huawei Ascend P6, is said to be only 6.2mm thick, which should make it the thinnest Android phone in the world.
Rumors of the Huawei Ascend P6 surfaced earlier this month when a French website leaked the first details of its existence.
Fresh images of the Ascend P6 have now been posted by trusted industry-insider EVLeaks. They highlight just how thin the new smartphone will be, while at the same time showcasing it’s premium design, including a brushed aluminium case and metallic side-skirts.
The device is said to feature a 1.5GHz quad-core processor packed inside, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, 5 mega-pixel camera, and a 4.7-inch 720p HD display. Running under Android Jelly Bean, the smartphone will also pack Huawei’s Emotion UI on top.
Huawei’s Device Chairman announced the Ascend P6 would be unveiled on June 16th, at a press event in London. He’s since removed the information from the Chinese social network Weibo.
