Huawei Announces World’s Thinnest Smartphone [CES 2012]
Huawei has announced two new smartphones at CES, one of which boasts the title “World’s thinnest smartphone.” Introducing the Ascend P1 and the Ascend P1 S (not much time was spent coming up with those names). The Ascend P1 S (we’re assuming the “S” stand for “slim”) claims the fame of “Worlds’ thinnest smartphone,” and measures a thickness of only 6.68mm. The Ascend P1 is basically the same phone only a tad thicker (perhaps for the LTE market and a larger battery) and both feature:
- 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD (960 x 540)
- 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
- Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
- 8MP rear camera with 1080p recording
- 1.3MP front-facing camera with 720p recording
- Bluetooth 3.0
- 1GB RAM
- 4GB ROM
Both versions will come in a variety of colors including metallic black, ceramic white, and cherry-blossom pink, and both will be running stock Vanilla Android (that’s Android 4.0 with no manufacturer skin on top). No word on pricing, but the Ascend P1 and P1 S should be hitting North America, Australia, the Middle East, and China sometime in Q2 2012.
If thin’s your game, then Huawei’s your name!
