Huawei Hopes to Break Into US Mobile Market With World's Slimmest Smartphone

Huawei chairman Richard Yu knows that Americans don't associate mobile phones with its brand, but the company is hoping to change all that with the introduction of the "world's slimmest" smartphone, the Ascend P1 S.

Landing in North America in April, the Ascend P1 S is just 6.68 mm thick and comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Gorilla Glass touchscreen, so not only is it big and bright, but it's strong, too. And more than strong, it's fast and powerful — the P1 S is stocked with a dual-core 1.5Ghz Cortext-A9 processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (something a lot of new phones can't say), though you'll only get 3G connectivity with this device. There are two cameras onboard the P1 S (an 8MP rear-facing and 1.3MP forward-facing), a dual LED flash, and 1080p recording capabilities.

As for the design, you can get the Ascend P1 S in metallic black, ceramic white, and cherry blossom pink with more colors to come soon. Huawei also introduced the P1 smartphone, which is built in the same spirit as the P1 S, but is just a bit thicker at 7.69mm.
