Huawei launches Ascend P6 S with some minor changes

Despite a sleek thin design, a gorgeous display and a solid camera, Huawei’s Ascend P6 simply lacked oomph. Now the company has given the handset a slight revision, bumping its original 1.5GHz quad-core processor up to 1.6GHz. Unfortunately, the phone’s new silicon still doesn’t support LTE, and not much else has changed: the phone still has 2GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch display and a 2,000mAh battery. 

Huawei quietly put out an S version of its super-thin Ascend P6 smartphone. The Huawei Ascend P6 S is 0.3 thicker, but still only goes as high as 6.5mm, though it has the same battery capacity of 2,000mAh. The chipset has been bumped up a bit and now features a quad-core 1.6GHz processor (up from 1.5GHz). It’s not clear if it’s Huawei’s own chipset again, but there’s no LTE support either way. It’s a dual-SIM, dual-standby phone, the original P6 had a dual-SIM option. The rest of the specs are identical – 4.7” LCD with 720p resolution (the display works with gloves), 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 8MP main camera and a 5MP front-facing camera.
