Huawei Ascend P6 lands in Australia July 15

ascendp6Chinese communications giant Huawei has announced its super-thin Ascend P6 smartphone will arrive in Australia on July 15 for $499 outright (no contract).

The new Huawei Ascend P6 features a 4.7 inches touchscreen panel with 720 x 1280-pixel resolution and up to 2 GB of memory to keep things on the boil.¬†It’s powered by Huawei/HiSilicon’s K3V2 quad-core SoC (system on a chip) CPU clocking in at up to 1.5GHz, while the panel has a 16-core Vivante GC4000 graphics engine to handle graphics-intensive apps and games.

There’s on-board storage through an 8GB cache of built-in flash memory, while external storage comes by way of MicroSD card slot, supporting up to 32GB per card. The Huawei Ascend P6 is preloaded with¬†Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) and includes a 2000mAh Li-Po-type battery but unfortunately, no talk or standby times were available at time of publishing.

It has the basic Wi-Fi options of 802.11 b/g/n built-in and Bluetooth v3.0 with A2DP covering personal communications. Coverage is handled over 2G through its 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz band support and 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 MHz bands for 3G networks.

An 8MP (3264×2448 pixels) with autofocus image sensor on the back delivers the device’s best photo quality and you get a surprisingly good 5MP option on the front for video-conferencing. The device also supports video recording up to 1080p@30fps.

The device’s weight tips the scales at 120 grams while its dimensions are 132.7 x 65.5 x 6.2 mm. The phone will be available in black and white from JB HiFi and Dick Smith stores from July 15 for $499.
