Huawei Ascend P1 S with Android Ice Cream Sandwich debuts as the world’s thinnest smartphone

Forget about the Motorola Razr or other Android handsets that were announced as being “world’s thinnest”, because there’s a new king in town: the Huawei Ascend P1 S, which is only 6.68mm thin.

The Ascend P1 S runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass screen with 960 x 540 pixels, 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 dual-core processor, penta-band HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 8MP backside illuminated rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, PPVD back cover, and a 1670 mAh battery.

Update: in fact, the world’s thinnest Android smartphone is the Fujitsu ARROWS ES IS12F (only 6.6mm). However, the ARROWS ES IS12F is a Japan-only product, while Huawei’s device will be available globally.

The Ascend P1 S will be joined by the Ascend P1, which has the same features but is 7.69mm thin, and comes with a 1800 mAh battery.

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). Their prices haven’t been unveiled.

All in all, this is a big announcement from Huawei, which certainly takes its Android business seriously. It remains to be seen if any major US carrier will be interested in selling the ultra-thin Ascend P1 S.

    Sorry, but it’s the second thinness phone. Fujitsu was the first with a 6.6 mm thin device.

    Thank you for the Update. At least this phone will not stay in Asia like all the Fujitsu phones.
