Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, announced the Ascend P1 and Ascend P1 S at CES. Huawei claims the P1 S is the world’s slimmest smartphone, measuring just .26 inches thick.
The Ascend P1 S rocks Android 4.0, 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen with 960 by 540 pixel resolution, Gorilla Glass, 1 GB of RAM, quadband GSM/EDGE support, pentaband 3G support, and there’s even HDMI out. An 8MP camera and 1.3MP front facing camera offer Dual-LED Flash and 1080p HD video capture. A second version of the phone, called only the Ascend P1, offers the same set of features but is slightly thicker at 7.69mm thick and includes a larger 1800 mAh battery. Both phones are running Ice Cream Sandwich. When it is due to come out and how much will it cost?
Both the Huawei Ascend P1 S and Ascend P1 should be available starting the second quarter of the year in North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and the Middle East. The handsets will have several color versions (including black, white and cherry-blossom pink), at a yet unannounced price.
