After launching the very much in demand Honor 3C in the country, Huawei is all set to offer the next mid-ranger for folks in India, the Huawei Ascend G6.
The Ascend G6 was initially announced at the MWC earlier this year, with a 4.5-inch qHD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Quite clearly, the device is attempting to grab a spot in the affordable quad-core smartphone segment in the country; however, at 16,999 INR we think that the device is a little overpriced. For reference, the very popular Motorola Moto G (8GB) goes for under 13,000 INR in India.

Besides the aforementioned RAM and processor, the Ascend G6 packs a Sony 8 mega-pixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture, a 5 mega-pixel front snapper and a 2000mAh battery. Storage isn’t too impressive at just 4GB on-board, but you have the option to expand it via microSD.
Android v4.3 takes charge of all the hardware, of course with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top to attempt to please your eye.
The device can be bought for 16,999 INR via Huawei Device.[Source, Via]
Huawei will have to rethink the pricing of it’s phones in India..New breed of Motorola Micromax phones in ₹ 7k price point..have totally changed market dynamics in India. A 17 k phone has to have much better specs than G6…
With Idol X+ at the same price point, who’s going to buy this? You get a smart band and a JBL earphone too with X+.
Huawei’s pricing in India has always been overpriced compared to the price they sell in other international markets, for some weird reason.
