Earlier this month, Huawei released the Ascend P6 which at 6.18mm thickness, was, and is, the thinnest smartphone on the market right now. With its quad-core 1.5GHz processor and coming with Android 4.2.2, the Ascend P6 is actually quite a decent alternative to the flagships of both HTC and Samsung, however Huawei has not done amazingly well away from its native China and surrounding regions. That looks to be about to change as Kevin Ho, Huawei president of the handset product division, has gone on record with Pocket-lint that Huawei is talking with Google to produce a Huawei Ascend P6 Google Edition.
This interview isn’t without its holes: this statement goes directly against what Huawei chairman, Richard Yu, said when launching the Ascend P6, claiming that Huawei’s Emotion UI was much better than the one offered by stock Android.
I guess we’ll see if the Ascend P6 Google Edition eventually surfaces, but the real question is would people buy it? As long as it isn’t prohibitively expensive and cheaper than the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Editions, The Ascend P6 has the potential to do quite well with stock Android lovers.
