Kevin Ho, president of Huawei's handset product division, was recently quoted by media, saying that the company is in talks about making an Ascend P6 that will run stock Android. "We are working with Google to analyse the possibility of bringing out a Huawei Ascend P6 with Google Edition," he said.

Huawei could be the next company to follow Samsung and HTC's lead, and offer a stripped-back 'Google Edition' of its latest handset, the Ascend P6.

The Ascend P6 was unveiled last week, and it is 6.2mm slim, it's being touted as the thinnest mobile ever made. With a 4.7-inch, 1,280x720-pixel resolution screen, it's nowhere near as big or sharp as the HTC One or Galaxy S4. But that front is practically all screen, inside are a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.

The camera on the front is 5-megapixels, while the back one packs a healthy 8 megapixels. It will be out in July 2013.

The HTC One and Samung Galaxy S4 Google Editions have piqued the interest of the great phone-buying public, and that's what really counts. Huawei could well have noticed, and be about to perform a reverse ferret.
