Huawei unveiled a new smartphone, the Ascend P6, which it claims is the world’s slimmest and would help the company in capturing smartphone share from Apple and Samsung.

Measuring 6.18mm and weighing about 120g, the new Ascend P6 features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, a 4.7-inch high definition display, a 5-mega pixel front-facing camera and an 8-mega pixel rear-facing camera.

The new smartphone comes with a 2000mAh battery and an in-built Android 4.2.2 operating system, in addition to a ‘MagicTouch’ that improves screen responsiveness even when wearing gloves.
