The Carphone Warehouse are currently offering an unlocked, SIM-free P6 at £329.95 (about $516), there’s also a pay monthly plan starting at 21 GBP per month. A pretty decent price for a handset of this calibre.
Announced at the Huawei event in London on the 18th the Huawei Ascend P6 is a super thin phone with a 4.7-inch 720p HD screen. It also comes packed with Huawei’s own 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera on the back, and a pretty awesome 5-megapixel front-facing camera – the first smartphone to offer a front facing camera of this resolution.
The Carphone Warehouse page has a ton of information surrounding the Huawei P6 so for more details and to pre-order your handset head to the Carphone Warehouse.
Robert Downey Jr. is reportedly set to team up with HTC to promote their smartphones.
The Taiwanese tech titan has seen sagging share prices and profits in the last twelve months, along with the departure of several high-ranking employees.
Its new HTC One flagship smartphone has been subjected to supply-related woes too, despite being a hit with the press, including iafrica.com.
“True, it might not have microSD support and the UltraPixel camera might not be as sharp as its rivals, but don’t let that deter you. The HTC One comes highly recommended,” we said in our review.
Now, Bloomberg has reported that HTC and Downey Jr. have come to terms on a two-year deal, worth $12-million, citing two people with “knowledge of the plans”.
According to the sources, the deal will see the actor as himself rather than Ironman or any other character he portrayed.
“We have nothing to announce today on a new marketing campaign,” an HTC spokesperson was quoted as saying.
