BARCELONA, Spain -- Huawei's new Ascend G6 is a 4.5-inch Android phone with a quad-core processor and an impressive 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Love taking selfies? This could be the phone for you. It goes on sale in the UK in April, but Huawei hasn't said whether it will see a US launch or how much it will cost. We're expecting it to be affordable, however.
