CES 2012: Huawei's World's Sleekest Smartphone
 
 

Imagine a smartphone whose thickness is only 12.5% of the thickness of the average human finger!

If you were in Las Vegas this week, you wouldn't have to imagine. This is exactly what Huawei has just introduced.

It's called the Ascend P1 S, and to be specific it measures in at just 0.26 inches thick. The company claims that is a new world record.

"We're excited to unveil the world's slimmest smartphone here at CES 2012," said Huawei chairman Richard Yu.

And what the device lacks in thickness, it certainly does not also lack in features. The phone packs in a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display and has a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor.

In addition, it has rear (8-megapixel) and front (1.3-megapixel) cameras and manages to pack in Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, with all that power.

The phone is designed to be operable all over the world and promises a stellar battery life with a proprietary technology that reduces power consumption and also, assumedly, makes for a thinner design.

Huawei (pronounced "wah way") hasn't made a huge name for itself in the US yet, but just like its more successful counterpart HTC, Android has allowed Huawei to make inroads outside of its Asian home territory and start gaining traction in the much more coveted US market.

So far the company has tried to find a niche as a low-cost Android manufacturer but with this very powerful and sleek phone, it is most definitely trying to take a bite at the major players.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
