    Here's a story we didn't quite get to yesterday afternoon. The Huawei Ascend P6 was officially unveiled and it is an elegant piece of smartphone hardware. It has excellent specs which we will detail below, but its standout feature is its thinness. It is only 6.18mm thick, making it the thinnest smartphone on the planet. Here's a spec-list:
    • Body: 6.18 mm thick, 120 grams, metallic case
    • Display: 4.7-inch LCD, HD resolution, 312 PPI pixel density
    • Platform: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 1.6
    • Processor: 1.5 GHz quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor
    • RAM: 2GB
    • Storage: 8GB built-in, extendable up to 32GB through an SD card
    • Front-facing camera: 5-megapixel with feature support for “selfies” and capable of capturing 1080p videos
    • Rear-facing camera: 8-megapixel BSI with F2.0 aperture, LED Flash and 4cm macro view, can record Full HD videos
    • Battery: 2000 mAh with power saving technology
    The video above gives a great view of the device. It will be hitting international availability later this month. Sadly, it is unlikely to ever come to the United States.

    The phone already has pre-order availability and pricing in the UK: Carphone Warehouse taking pre-orders for July 4 availability, £329.95 SIM-free

    Here's the full press release,
