CES 2012: Huawei Unveils World’s Slimmest Smartphone

Today at CES, Huawei announced the Ascend P1 and P1S Android powered smartphones. The two devices share a lot of the same features. Both devices have a 4.3 inch super AMOLED touch screen, running at 960×540 and protected by Cornings Gorilla Glass. Powered by a dual-core 1.5 Ghz TI OMAP 4460 processor. Both devices have a 1670 mAh battery to take you through a day without issues, hopefully. You’ll find Dobly Mobile 3.0 powering the 5.1 Surrond sound output from the devices. 8 Megapixel cameras that can capture 1080p HD video, dual flash LED and HDR effect optimization.

And the list goes on to include all the stuff you would expect – Android 4.0 – Ice Cream Sandwich, WiFi (with B/G/N), Bluletooth 3.0, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM (a little low on the ROM side, in my opinon), Dual mic’s for noise reduction, DLNA support, and of course multiple colors (metallic black, ceramic white, cherry-blossom pink, and more to come in the future.

I know you’re asking what the difference is between these two devices. After all, so many of the features are the same. Well, the answer is pretty simple – the P1 measures in at 7.69×64.8×129 mm, and the P1S measures in at 6.68×64.8×129 mm. The grand difference? It’s just 1.01mm. Along with the thickness difference comes a small difference in weight, but nothing to be concerned about. Personally, I can’t see why any one would choose the thicker version. Who doesn’t like thinner and lighter?

There’s no date for availability mentioned, other than April 2012. And no mention of price or region where is will start shipping.

    Huawei is a little-known cell phone manufacturer in the United States. But their drive in innovation is definitely making news in the mobile industry. This company has all potentials to be noticed among Apple, Samsung and RIM. The standard set by the Chinese telecommunications equipment supplier is a decent score in achieving the thinnest mobile phone. About the 1.01mm difference, well I think someone else should beat that thickness difference.
