The Ascend P1 S has a 1.5GHz dual-core TI OMAP Cortex-A9 processor and runs the latest Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich). The phone features a rear as well as front-facing camera. The rear camera is 8-megapixels and the front facing camera is 1.3-megapixels HD.
Richard Yu, Chairman, Huawei said: "We're excited to unveil the world's slimmest smartphone here at CES 2012. The Ascend P1 S demonstrates our ongoing commitment to innovating high-quality devices that utilize the latest hardware and software technologies for consumers to enjoy around the globe."
Huawei also took the opportunity to unveil the Ascend P1. It boasts similar functionality to the P1 S, albeit at a slightly larger girth of 7.69mm. Both devices are said to provide fast multi-tasking, video replay and great gaming experience.
The P1/P1 S will be available by April 2012 in the Middle East and will come in metallic black, ceramic white and cherry-blossom pink and other colours.
