The Huawei Ascend P6 is not only one of the slimmest, but also among the best looking smartphones around. It is also a pretty decent smartphone with the only part of its hardware that wasnít quite impressive being the chipset, which tended to deliver more heat that actual processing power.

The Chinese manufacturer has obviously acknowledged that as itís now preparing to release an upgraded version of the smartphone featuring a new chipset with an octa-core CPU. The news was delivered by the companyís president Xu Xin Quan through the Weibo blogging platform.

Powering the upcoming Huawei Ascend P6S will be another custom designed SoC that will come to replace the K3V2 on the companyís products. It will come will a true-octa core processor, meaning that all cores will be able to operate simultaneously, unlike the current crop of Samsung Exynos chipsets which only allow up to four cores to work at a time.

The rest of the Ascend P6S specifications remain unknown, but the naming suggests that it wonít be a huge upgrade over the Ascend P6 (pictured above). We also have no information just yet on pricing and launch dates for the new smartphone.
