Huawei launches “P6 mini” with exciting freebies on May 31


Huawei is launching the Huawei Ascend G6 on May 31 at the SM North EDSA Annex Cyberzone. The launch activities, starting at 10am, coincides with the official opening of Huawei’s brand shop.

The Ascend G6 is the affordable version of Huawei’s 2013 flagship, the still incredible Ascend P6.

The Ascend G6 will be available at a much lower price during the launch at PhP 8,990, instead of the PhP 9,990 suggested retail price. At that discounted price, you also get to take home a monopod and 8GB micro SD card.

Huawei brand ambassador Jasmine Curtis-Smith will join the activities as she’s scheduled to take “selfies” using the Ascend G6 with consumers at the launch.
