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!
