Huawei announces two new Android phones, Including the World’s Thinnest Smartphone

January 9, 2012

That’s right Huawei now has the world’s thinnest smartphone, but where CES hasn’t officially started yet I am sure there will be more thinner ones. Huawei this morning announced the¬†Ascend P1 S and the Ascend P1. The P1 S is the thinnest, most likely for GSM markets. While the P1 is a bit thicker most likely an LTE phone.

Huawei’s press conference starts at 8am PST, and we will be covering it for you. In the meantime check out the P1 and P1 S specs below:

  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD (960 540)
  • 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
  • Quadband (GSM/GPRS/EDGE)
  • Pentaband (UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA)

The phones will be available in a ton of colors including metallic black, ceramic white an cherry-blossom pink. They will be available  in Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, the Middle East and China in Q2 2012 at the earliest.

These two phones have definitely got me interested, could these be the first Android phones to launch with ICS? Well they are some of the first announced since the Nexus to launch with ICS, so we will see.

What do you think of the Ascend P1 and P1 S? Let us know in the comments.
