Huawei Ascend P6

Huawei is pretty proud of the new flagship Ascend P6 and its Emotion UI, which it unveiled today in London. And while we're seeing the likes of Samsung and HTC -- and probably Sony -- get on board with "Google Edition" versions of their top-shelf phones, Huawei has no plans to do so with the Ascend P6, Richard Yu, Chief Executive Officer for the Huawei Consumer Business Group, said at Tuesday's event.

That sentiment was echoed in the press release.

“The HUAWEI Ascend P6 is a star among smartphones with its industry-leading design, high-quality camera, and intuitive user interface. Building on the success of our Ascend P series of fashion smartphones, the HUAWEI Ascend P6 provides unsurpassed technology and a design that is simply stunning.”

"Stock" versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One will go on sale June 26 at Google Play.

No 'Google Edition' Ascend P6 in the works, Huawei says

What does that press release have anything to do with Google Editions? It just sounds like a boilerplate marketing piece that goes out every time a new phone comes out.

I just kind of chuckle at this. Now I'm not saying Huawei is bad or anything, it just sounds like they want to be part of the big android OEMs.

They do, but someone forgot to let them in on the whole GE phones

A company's presence in the US doesn't necessarily represent its international presence.

They are probably going to sell about 5 each of those google edition phones. The people who care or even know about stock google experience already have a Nexus 4. The fact they are only good on the carriers that can support the Nexus phones means they are not going to sell many unless they drop the prices several hundred dollars. Or, if they release them on Verizon/Sprint which I don't see happening.

I somewhat agree. If they had a hybrid google edition phone is would sell better.
Vanilla android, but keep the enhancements to the camera, audio, and things like that

There is not always going to be a Google edition of a phone. I'm not surprised.
