Huawei unveiled the world’s slimmest Android Smartphone at CES 2012. This slim smartphone is named Ascend P1S and is only 6.68 mm thick. Till now Motorola Droid Razr which is 7.1 mm thick was holding this position which is now taken away by Huawei Ascend P1S.
"We're excited to unveil the world's slimmest smartphone in Bangalore at CES 2012," said Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device. "The Ascend P1S demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovating high quality devices that utilize the latest hardware and software technologies." This slim phone features; a 4.3-inch, 540 x 960 Super AMOLED screen covered with Corning Gorilla Glass, a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU paired with a SGX 540 GPU, dual LED flash and HDR effect optimization, an 8-megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p video and a 1.3MP front-facing camera capable of capturing 720p video, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, 4G connectivity via their HSPA+ antennas and runs on Google’s latest Android revision-Ice Cream Sandwich.
The slim design of Ascend P1S has caused a drawback to this smartphones i.e. its 1670 mAh model battery. But Huawei comes up with a solution to this, its Ascend P1 model which is a clone of Ascend P1S in terms of specification but has an 1800 mAh battery and a slightly thicker 7.69 mm body. So customers have to decide what they want, the slimmest smartphone or a lightly thicker one with a high performing battery. According to Huawei both Ascend P1 S and Ascend P1 will hit the world market by this April and the prices of these smartphones are yet to be announced.
