Huawei announce world’s slimmest Android smartphone at 6.68mm

Today Huawei announce the world slimmest Android smartphone, at CES today, This can change tomorrow when more manufactures unveils their upcoming Android smartphones. The company thought it could walk away from CES 2012 having claimed the title of world’s thinnest Android smartphone, but Huawei seems to have beaten it by a mere 0.02mm.

Fujitsu’s Arrows ES sports a 4-inch display and is only 6.7mm thick. However, Huawei has turned up to CES this year with the Ascend P1 S, which sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display and enjoys a thickness of just 6.68mm

It’s not just how thin the P1 S is that makes it impressive. That large display needs a fast processor to power the 960 x 540 resolution, and Huawei doesn’t disappoint. At its heart the phone uses a Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM.

The phones runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and manages to pack in an 8MP camera with face recognition. You won’t be feeling much weight in your pocket either, as the P1 S only weighs 130 grams.

The Ascend P1 S is expected to become available in April with a price point around $400. With that spec and price, it looks to be a fantastic bargain of a smartphone, we just need to know how well it performs and what the battery life is like.

For those who like the look of the P1 S, but want to ensure they aren’t running to the charger every few hours, Huawei is also launching the Ascend P1. It’s basically the same phone, but measures 7.69mm thick so as to fit in a larger battery.
