There is a possibility that Huawei may make an Ascend P6 Google Edition, which will add the smartphone to the list of Google Edition handsets out there including the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Nexus (check out Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Nexus here) and the HTC One with Nexus User Experience.

Interviewed by Pocket-lint (check out site here), Huawei president of the handset product division, Kevin Ho, said, “We are working with Google to analyse the possibility of bringing out a Huawei Ascend P6 with Google Edition.”

This, however, conflicts with what was earlier said by Huawei. Pocket-lint says, “The confirmation however, is the polar opposite of what the company’s chairman Richard Yu said on stage at the launch of the P6 in London.

“According to the chairman, Huawei isn’t interested. Yu claimed that Huawei’s Emotion UI was better, with “hundreds of improvements” over the Google Android experience. He concluded that its user interface would be better in touch with a user’s “emotions”.”

To clarify, Huawei said, “We maintain an open view towards Google Edition handsets. If the consumer experience is good, we may consider it. However, right now we are focused mainly on the development of the Huawei Emotion UI. Currently, there is no plan for a Google Edition of the Ascend P6.”
