Huawei has officially released the world's thinnest mobile phone with its Ascend P6, which is expected to arrive in nominated markets from next month.
The company's chief executive Richard Yu confirmed that the ultra-skinny handset would be available in 19 markets, including Australia and the UK by the end of July.
Chinese markets will be able to get their hands on the device from today with a retail price of AU$635, which makes it significantly cheaper than rivals like Samsung's Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5.
However, if you don't want to buy it sim-free, there are a number of networks offering plans for the handset from around £25 per month in the UK so we'd expect Australian carriers to provide plans around the AU$40 mark.
Unusually there's been no word on when the US will receive the smartphone, but the company has said that by the end of August it will be available in 100 markets around the world.
