Huawei Ascend G6 Hands On

At the MWC 2014, Huawei was rumored to announce a mid-range LTE capable smartphone and as expected, they announced a midrange smartphone in the form of Huawei Ascend G6. Huawei had launched a couple of tablets and a lone smartphone at the event. Unlike the tablets, which are powered by Huawei’s own processor, the Ascend G6 smartphone is powered by a quad-core processor from Qualcomm.


We managed to get a quick hands on with the device and you can check out the video right below.


The specifications of the Huawei Ascend G6 are as follows

  • 4.5-inch (960 x 540 pixels) IPS display
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core processor
  • Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean)
  • 8MP auto focus rear camera with LED Flash, BSI sensor
  • 5 front-facing camera
  • 7.85mm thick and weighs 115g, 7.5mm for the 3G variant
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • 1GB RAM, 4GB Internal memory, expandable memory with MicroSD
  • 4G LTE/3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC
  • 2000 mAh battery.

In terms of design, the Huawei Ascend G6 seems like a midrange version of the Ascend P6. It comes with a dual tone finish and has a removable back cover. The bottom of the device is curved and there is a 3.5mm audio jack on the bottom of the left side which is kind of weird. It packs midrange specifications in a LTE capable device and that seems to be the exact intention from Huawei.

Huawei Ascend G6 comes in a range of colors like black with light gunmetal grey or rose gold colors , or in white with pink or champagne gold colors. It is expected to go on sale in April 2014 and is priced at 249Euros.
