Huawei has confirmed that it is collaborating with Google to join the likes of Samsung and HTC and produce a stock Android smartphone that will be sold in the Google Play store. Kevin Ho, president of the Huawei’s handset product division, revealed in an interview with Pocket-lint that the company is “working with Google to analyse the possibility” of producing a Google Edition version of its incredibly thin Ascend P6 smartphone. The device measures a mere 6.2 millimeters thick and is equipped with a 4.7-inch 720p display, an in-house 1.5GHz quad-core processor and an 8-megapixel rear camera. The P6 also includes 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a 2,000 mAh battery.
