Huawei teases upcoming Ascend P6 with a picture and video

Huawei have taken to the internet to hype up their upcoming Ascend P6 release in London. From the obscure photo we can see that the device is going to be quite thin, quite white, and have quite a disgusting looking UI — dubbed ‘Emotion UI’. As for the video, it features a lot of parkour and dubstep and not a lot of Ascend P6. Huawei’s CEO, Richard Yu, recently spoke of the Ascend P6 and its use of side buttons. “You know, after using the P6 more and more, I’ve begun to notice how nice the side keys were designed[Read More...]

Huawei announce the Ascend P2 at Mobile World Congress

Huawei announce the Ascend P2 at Mobile World Congress

Huawei has kicked off the press announcements for Mobile World Congress with an announcement of their new Ascend P2. The new phone is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but skinned with the Emotion UI that we’ve heard about previously, an unfortunate step in terms of going away from the mostly stock interface that they have enjoyed previously. Hardware wise the phone is fairly decent however the Huawei has bucked the trend of most manufacturers with the Ascend P2 by supplying the phone with a screen that isn’t a 1080P resolution instead going for a 4.7″ 1280×720 resolution ‘Infinity Pool’ IPS[Read More...]
