The smartphone features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and a sleek metallic body. With its 4.7-inch high definition in-cell display, industry-leading 5MP front-facing camera, and outstanding software, the Ascend P6 is the embodiment of elegance with an edge.

“Huawei’s reputation for industry-leading technology is as a result of over 20 years experience in the ICT sector, as our business continues to grow by 10% year on year amidst the economic challenges.” said Mr Peter Hu, Managing Director of Huawei Device : Eastern and Southern Africa Region.

“Our Smartphones are reasonable in price, yet offer the latest technology and high quality performance”.  Peter assured that Huawei’s commitment to continue providing Africa with the opportunity to stay connected any time anywhere as the company marks 15 years of operation in the region.

The South African launch was held at the Venue at Greenpark, Sandton. Several celebrities and the ‘who’s who’ of the mobile phone industry got the opportunity to catch an early peak at HUAWEI Ascend P6.

As the flagship smartphone of the Huawei Ascend P series, the Ascend P6 embodies a cutting edge design for the fashion conscious. The smartphone’s brushed metallic look with a naturally curved base is both elegant and intuitive.

Perfect for ‘selfies’, the Ascend P6’s industry-leading 5MP front-facing camera and auto facial-enhancing capabilities create model-gorgeous shots you’ll want to share. Its 8MP rear-facing BSI camera with F2.0 aperture and 4cm macro view also enables 1080P full HD video recording and playback.

With Huawei’s proprietary IMAGESmart software, the Ascend P6 turns even the most novice photographer into a professional, with contrast and colour enhancement, auto scene recognition, object tracing focus, and instant facial beauty support.

The Ascend P6 is even more intuitive and able to be customised with Huawei’s Emotion UI. Inspired by people, for device users worldwide, Huawei has gathered input from over 5 million consumers to help us optimise the latest version of Emotion UI.

The proprietary user interface includes updates to Uni-Home, including enhanced security, Huawei’s Me Widget, MagicTouch, and SmartReading. New to Huawei’s Emotion UI are the panoramic shot and facial recognition photography functions.
