Huawei Ascend P6 with Google Edition, now no more a illusion, rather it’s more like a vision to the Chinese company whose smartphone P6 would be next Android device to feature a ‘Nexus-ized’ Google Edition.
According to the president of the handset product division of Huawei, talks are going on with Google over a version of the P6 with the possibilities of pure Android experience.
The world’s thinnest smartphone 4.7-inch P6 usually runs Huawei’s Emotion UI. The Nexus experience was not on cards initially as per the statements made by the company CEO Richard Wu on June 18 at the unveiling of P6. He further added that Emotion has “hundreds of improvements” over Android’s user experience.
However, the crave for Google editions of flagship Android devices started recently at Google I/O when it announced a Samsung Galaxy S4 with the same UI of branded Nexus devices followed by HTC with HTC One Google Edition. Samsung’s TouchWiz and HTC’s Sense have long divided opinion among Android fans, with some choosing to root their devices just to access raw Android.
With the growth of Google Editions, users will no longer have to fiddle with the device to avoid reeling in Android fragmentation.
