Expected next 18 June at the press event in London,  the Huawei Ascend P6 has been rumored for a while now and we even saw the official photos a few days ago. In the past few hours,  the alleged  ”world’s slimmest smartphone” – with a thickness of 6.18mm - showed itself in a couple of benchmarks,  giving us a glimpse on some of its main specs.  From the usual Gfxbenchmark we get to know further info on the processor, Android release and display.

First of all,  the Ascend P6 should be powered by a K3V2  processor that we have seen inside other Huawei devices recently. The device will not offer a full HD display, but a 1200 x 720 resolution one, meaning an HD resolution on a 4.7 inch diagonal. It will run on top of the latest Android 4.2.2 release with Emotion UI 1.6.

The reason why Huawei opted for this resolution could be found in battery life, since a Full HD resolution would have been too power consuming, especially considering the phone very slim body.
