The Huawei P6 is a super-slim device with some serious horsepower, but its successor, the Ascend P6 S, promises to pack even more punch. Launched today with not much fanfare, the P6 S is a bit thicker (6.5 mm) but has the same battery capacity, 2,000mAh.
While it lacks LTE support, there is now a quad-core 1.6GHz processor. It’s also a dual-SIM, dual-standby phone. The remaining specs are the same as its predecessor— 4.7-inch LCD with 720p resolution, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, an 8MP rear shooter, and a 5MP front camera.
The phone packs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, overlayed with Emotion UI 2.0. Only available on China Unicom, the phone costs CNY 2,700 ($446 / €330).
Overall, Huawei’s Ascend Mate 2 is a much better phone, but this is certainly a decent low-cost, (updated) lower-end device for those that don’t need a top of the line phone.
