The Huawei Ascend P6, one of the best selfie phones of 2013, now has a “mini” – meet the just-launched Huawei Ascend G6. The G6 takes after the slim and svelte profile of the P6, including its much-to-brag-about selfie camera, but brings down the price.

Here it is:

  • Look how beautiful that is.

  • The small display on the upper left is how your image on the selfie cam will turn out. So you can fine tune your pose or the background accordingly.

The Huawei Ascend G6 is almost as thin as its predecessor, but carries just as impressive camera specs and features.


Notable features of the G6

  • Comes with an up to 30% power saving feature, so you can get more things done and have more fun.
  • The G6 comes with Huawei’s own Emotion UI 2.0 overlay that’s intuitive and non-techie-looking, and allows you access to over 1,000 online themes.
