Parallel to the whose-screen-is-bigger race there is another competition going on. Manufacturers also compete in the thinness league. That said, it appears that soon we may have a new record holder. A Chinese equivalent of the FCC has received a new handset from Huawei for tests and for sure it is slim. The phone, codenamed P6-U06 is just 0.24 inches (6.18 mm) thick making it the thinnest smartphone ever produced to date. It looks like the mysterious P6-U06 may be the first of the Huawei P series mentioned by company exec at Consumer Electronics Show in January.
Huawei P6-U06 phone to be 6.18 mm thick
Thanks to some leaked photos and specs we can tell that the phone will have rather elongated form measuring 5.2 x 2.6 x 0.2 inches (32.6 x 65.5 x 6.18 mm) and weighing in at 4.2 ounces (120 g). The handset is believed to feature a 4.7-inch TFT display with 720p resolution, which is somewhat below our expectation for such a body size. The thin frame is said to house a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor paired with 2 GB of RAM.
The Huawei P6-U06 supposedly is equipped with an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. We have to admit that the front camera resolution is quite unusual for a smartphone. In addition to GSM / WCDMA radios, the P6-U06 also offers dual SIM support, which clearly suggests that it is destines for the Chinese market. The handset will ship with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will be available in several colors including white and pink.
