Huawei has confirmed they are now in talks with Google to explore the possibility of coming up with a Google Edition of its latest Ascend P6 smartphone. The Chinese company has only recently launched the Ascend P6 which has come to be recognized as the slimmest smartphone on the planet. Also, the latest development marks a complete U turn as Huawei had earlier ruled out going for a Google Edition of the P6 which they had claimed to be much better off with the Emotion UI that it has provided the P6 with. The company chairman Richard Yu had stated during the smartphone’s launch event in London they have made a lot of changes to the user interface which made them loathe dumping it altogether in favor of a Google Edition of the device offering a vanilla Android experience.
However, it’s the publicity that the Google Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One that might have forced Huawei to rethink their decision. The President of Handset Product Division at Huawei, Kevin Ho has confirmed they are weighing the possibility of launching a Google Edition Ascend P6 though all of it is still in the nebulous stages and neither Google nor Huawei have confirmed such a device is indeed coming our way.
The Ascend P6 which was launched at an event in London last week comes with a 1.5 GHz quad core processor, 2 GB of RAM along with 8 GB of internal storage. Plus, there also is a micro SD card slot to allow for further memory expansion of up to 32 GB. The device features a 4.7 inch full HD display and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box. The P6 also comes with a better than expected 5 mp camera at the front though a bit disappointing 8 mp unit at the rear. A 2,000 mAh battery will be providing the juice.
