A month back, Huawei released a trio of smartphones in India, namely, the Honor 3C, Ascend G750 and Ascend G6. The first phone has already gone on sale in the country and the last device has now been put up for grabs for Rs 16,999 with the second device listed online as coming soon.
The Huawei Ascend G6 was launched at the MWC earlier this year in two models – 4G LTE and 3G. The latter version is what has gone official in India offering HSPA+ cellular support and a single SIM card slot. The phone is basically a cheaper variant of the 2013 Ascend P6 flagship. It sports a very similar design and is quite attractive as well. However, it’s not as slim as the latter. Nevertheless, a thickness of 7.5mm is pretty good for a mid-range handset.
Let’s get to the disappointing part. The handset has lower specs when compared with Honor 3C that’s selling for Rs 14,999 which is Rs 2,000 cheaper. The latter phone features a 5-inch HD display, a 1.3GHz quad core processor, 2GB RAM and a 2300mAh battery, while this one has a 1.2GHz Snapdragon SOC (probably the 200), a 4.5-inch qHD IPS display, 1GB of RAM and a 2000mAh battery. On the bright side, you get a newer version of Android, 4.3 Jelly Bean.
Here’s a quick roundup of the Ascend G6’s specs:
– Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
– 4.5-inch qHD IPS display
– 1GB RAM, 4GB storage
– 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon processor
– 8MP rear camera, 5MP front snapper
– 2000mAh battery
