Huawei P1 S Is The Worlds Thinnest Android Smartphone – For The Time Being
Smartphone maker Huawei has brought the big guns to the handset table – so to speak. The Chinese manufacturer has today unveiled it’s latest smartphone, the P1 S, and boy is it sucking in the gut! At just 6.68mm in width, this smartphone even beats out the impossibly thin Droid RAZR (7.1mm). Of course a sleek phone means nothing without comparably svelte innards. So Huawei amends this non-issue with a 1.5GHz, Dual Core TI OMAP 4460 CPU (Huawei points it out as truly being a Cortex-A9 at heart) alongside a SGX 540 GPU. How about the screen? Well it’s a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED, covered with Gorilla Glass and packing a resolution of 544 x 960! Wow! Other features for your enjoyment include an 8 megapixel camera that can use to shoot video in 1080p, a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera. Connectivity options include 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth. No mention of any compatibility with 4G technologies as of yet so that could be an issue for Huawei on the North American market. The battery is rated at 1670mAh/1800mAh suggesting the possibility of two different batteries being released with this phone. Of course the icing on the cake, so to speak, is the inclusion of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when this phone releases. No exact word on price as of yet but Huawei says this phone will release sometime around or during Q2 2012. When it releases it will be available in metallic black, ceramic white and cherry-blossom pink.
