HUAWEI Ascend G6 4G brings color to life with its crystal clear 4.5-inch qHD 960 x 540 LCD display and 245PPI. At 7.85mm slim and weighing 115g, Ascend G6 4G builds upon the 'double C' design of the popular Ascend P6 smartphone and is available in black with light gunmetal grey or rose gold highlights, or in white with pink or champagne gold. HUAWEI Ascend G6 also comes in a 7.5mm 3G version available in black, white, pink, gold or blue.
Running on a powerful quad-core 1.2 GHz processor and robust 2000 mAh lithium polymer battery with up to 30 percent power saving, HUAWEI Ascend G6 4G is 4G LTE-enabled for faster and more reliable connectivity. Movies can be downloaded in minutes and work files uploaded in seconds with speeds of up to 150 Mbps. Smart photo album, internet, notification and permission management provides full control. The 'one key scan' function maintains peak performance through 'phone speed tracking', 'power conservation', 'storage cleaning' and 'harassment filter'. Ascend G6 4G also supports NFC sharing for mobile payments.
Featuring the latest version of the intuitive Emotion UI 2.0, HUAWEI Ascend G6 4G brings smartphone use within reach. A customizable homescreen and the enhanced 'Standard' and 'Simplicity' UIs make navigation effortless, and nearly 1,000 online themes are available to suit personal preferences.
Ascend G6 4G offers an enhanced smartphone camera experience with Huawei's proprietary self-focus tips and preview screen. The four plastic element (4P) lens featured on the 5-megapixel front-facing camera provides audio controlled spontaneous snapping, auto-scene recognition and auto-facial enhancement. Featuring 88 degree wide-angle shooting, Ascend G6 4G enables all-inclusive photos that will wow viewers. Add an extra dimension with the 'Voice Photo' function that takes a photo and records a 10-second audio clip to accompany it, shareable via Facebook and WeChat.
There are also endless opportunities to explore surroundings with multi-shot capture, horizontal shooting and panoramic functions, thanks to the five plastic elements (5P) lens of the 8-megapixel AF BSI f/2.0 aperture rear-facing camera. Alternatively, the voice-activated hands-free 'selfie' function shows off camera-ready poses. Filming or photographing in low light is a breeze with Ascend G6 4G's in-built Sony IMX134 sensor, blue glass infrared filter and integrated camera flash for sharp, clear images.
