Backtracking from the company’s earlier stance, a Huawei executive told UK website Pocket Lint that his company is in talks with Google for a Nexus Edition of Ascend P6 smartphone.
“We are working with Google to analyse the possibility of bringing out a Huawei Ascend P6 with Google Edition,” Kevin Ho, President, Handset Product Division at Huawei told Pocket Lint.
Ho’s statement comes in stark contrast with the company chairman Richard Yu’s remarks at the London launch of Ascend P6, where he claimed that Huawei’s Emotion UI was better than stock experience and they have made hundreds of improvement in their UI.
While Kevin Ho’s revelation to Pocket Lint does not really confirm the arrival of the Nexus edition of Ascend P6 but it looks like the Chinese telecom giant might have changed its view after seeing the publicity garnered by HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 Nexus editions.
To remind you, Huawei Ascend P6 was unveiled about ten days ago and is set to be released this month in China, followed by select European market in July. The phone packs 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 4.7-inch HD in-cell display, 5MP front-facing camera, and Android 4.2.2. It also comes with 2,000 mAh battery, 8MP rear camera with BSI sensor BSI camera and F2.0 aperture.
