    Looking to follow in the footsteps of other incremental smartphone upgrades, Huawei have since released the Huawei Ascend P6S which is a version of the Huawei Ascend P6 smartphone that uses Huawei's new and improved quad-core K3V2+ processor. The new processor features ARM Cortex A9 cores along with a faster Mali-450 GPU. The Huawei Ascend P6S managed to a get an AnTuTu score of 22270 which is quite impressive but nowhere near what the top Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 smartphones can achieve. While the processor is said to be running at 1.6GHz, Huawei have said that the new H3V2+ processor should help decrease energy consumption down to 50% while delivering 50% to 80% better performance. No news on Malaysia release dates or pricing just yet though.

    After a very brief teaser period, Huawei Malaysia has confirmed that the Huawei Ascend P6 will be launched in Malaysia with the launch date set at 25 July 2013. Bear in mind that this would be on the same lines as an announcement and not the same as an actual release date, which could be a bit further down the road. Unfortunately, no details just yet on pricing or availability but stay tuned for further developments. No other news on the other upcoming Huawei devices like the Ascend P2, Ascend Y210D, G525 or MediaPad 7 Vogue so this could just be a single device launch.

    Huawei CEO Confident of 3rd Place by 2015

    Huawei is a well known company in mobile telecommunications but hasn't really made much waves with their smartphones. However, things have been picking up, especially with the recent release of the Huawei Ascend P6 which currently holds the title of World's slimmest smartphone. Other products like the Ascend Mate phablet are also providing good performance with build quality. In a sign of further confidence, Richard Yu, Huawei's CEO has revealed that he intends to position Huawei as the 3rd mobile maker worldwide by 2015. While it sounds like quite a claim, after some more thought the only ones to stand in their way for third spot would be Nokia, BlackBerry or LG making it quite possible with the right products.
