Huawei Ascend G6 stars in new renders; will it show at MWC?

Unlike LG, Huawei may not be announcing its MWC hardware way in advance of the actual show, but that doesn’t mean we don’t know what to expect. Earlier this month we heard a report claiming that Huawei would come prepared with a couple new tablets, at least one phone, and maybe even a smartwatch. That general idea (sans watch) seemed supported by a teaser the company put out a few days back, mentioning two tablets and a phone. We’ve been wondering just what phone Huawei could be talking about, with one candidate being the Ascend D3. Tonight we’ve got a different Huawei handset to check out, with renders of the apparent Ascend G6 leaking.

Now admittedly, this is a low-res collection of pics here, but it’s not the first time the G6 has shown its face, previously showing up in a regulatory filing last month (below). The specs don’t sound too great, with a qHD display and MediaTek SoC, but the phone is attractive enough (though we could stand for smaller bezels), relatively thin at 7.5mm, and might make for a worthwhile budget handset if the price is low enough.

So far, we’ve seen evidence pointing to plans for a G6 launch in China (no surprise there), but international availability is a lot less certain. If Huawei actually does bring this guy along to the MWC, we’ll hopefully learn a bit about the company’s plans for the phone.

Huawei’s MWC press event is bright and early Sunday morning, so check back with us a little later on that day to learn just what the company had to share.
