Huawei just unveiled two super-sleek Android smartphones - the Ascend P1 and P1 S. At just 7.69mm the Huawei Ascend P1 is one hot droid, while the P1 S profile measures the amazing 6.68 mm.

And the fun doesn't stop there either - both new Huawei smartphones have 4.3" Super AMOLED display resolutions of qHD (540 x 960), (much like on the Motorola RAZR) with Gorilla Glass on top. The Ascend P1 and Ascend P1 S are powered by the same TI OMAP 4460 chipset with a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 1.5 GHz processor and a PowerVR SGX540 graphics chip and run the latest and greatest Android 4.0 ICS.


We already got to spend some quality time with the two droids and their real-life performance turned out to be as good as their specs sheets. Check out our hands on here.
