Huawei is one of the many companies that are joining the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2014) in Barcelona, Spain. The company is bringing with it several of its new products that will be officially shown to the public for the first time. One of these devices is the Huawei Ascend G6, a 4.5-inch Android smartphone that has been leaked just several days ago.
The Huawei Ascend G6 is a 4G LTE capable device that has a similar design to the Ascend P6. It is designed to provide a faster data speed for people who need it and with its download speed of up to 150 Mbps, movies can be downloaded to the device in just a couple of minutes. Of course this will still have to depend on the network that the consumer is using.
According to Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, “Huawei Ascend G6 4G is a stylish, colorful, and lightning fast smartphone designed to break down barriers. With its handy 4G LTE connectivity, easy-to-use interface and dynamic cameras offering a multitude of photographic opportunities, Huawei is delivering on our promise to ‘Make it Possible’ for more people around the world.”
Huawei Ascend G6 uses a quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 HiSilicon chipset. Its 4.5-inch display has a resolution of 960×540 pixels at 245 ppi. It will be using Android 4.3 Jelly Bean straight out of the box with the company’s own Emotion UI 2.0 running on top. Its other features include an 8 MP Sony IMX134 rear camera, 5 MP front snapper, NFC support and a 2,000 mAh battery.
The company is highlighting the 5MP front camera of this device saying that it’s perfect for taking selfies. The front facing camera features a four plastic element (4P) lens that allows for audio controlled spontaneous snapping, auto-scene recognition and auto-facial enhancement.
The 3G version of this model will become available in the end of March while the LTE version will become available on April. The LTE model is priced at €249 (less than $345) with the 3G model expected to be priced lower.
