Huawei launched the Ascend P6 yesterday and is so optimistic of their new flagship Android device. The device will be available in Chinese market within this month and other markets within July. That includes Kenya.
The Chinese electronics giant has high hopes on this and has pegged business on the phone at 10 million units across Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Huawei notes that the Ascend P6 might not appeal to the North America carriers highly due to the absence of LTE on the device. Mobile Carriers in that region, particularly US carriers look at the ability of data consumption in high end smartphones before committing themselves.

Huawei acknowledges this and has committed to upgrade the Ascend P6 with an LTE version to be available from September. Huawei has allocated some 90 million Yuan ($11 million) to market the Ascend P6 in China alone and $30 million across markets in Europe.

This could be the first time Huawei has got a high end smartphone getting so much attention at launch, even with higher flagship devices from other OEMS like the Galaxy S 4 and iPhone 5. Ascend P6 is getting mentions for the design, the specifications however are a bit humble compared to other giants in the field running on Exynos 5 Octa and Qualcomm Snapdragon 600.
