Upcoming Huawei Edge to come in a 6.3mm thin aluminum body?

After HTC, Huawei may be the next company to adopt aluminum bodies for its phones. According to the image above, caught by the French site NoWhereElse, the upcoming Huawei Edge (or that’s Huawei Ascend Edge) may be released in the next few months as the company’s second flagship device for the year (after Ascend D2).

Aside from the aluminum (uni)body, Huawei’s baby will also pack a 4.9-inch 1080p full HD screen, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of internal memory, 2,600mAh battery, while Android 4.2 Jelly Bean will run the show right from the get-go. The smaller battery (Ascend D2 has a 3,000mAh one) suggests we’re talking about a thinner device — it will be 6.3mm thin — making it easier to fit your pocket. Guess something’s gotta give…

Anyway, the second half of the year will be interesting to watch with back to school and Christmas shopping seasons promising hot new devices, some of which may debut new processors, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and Nvidia Tegra 4. We’ll make sure you don’t miss a beat.

    Aluminum phones rock. Not sure why Samsung doesn’t get that…
