Take a look at Huawei’s high-end Ascend P1 smartphone

When you think of Huawei, you probably think of cheap, entry-level phones. After all, that is what they’ve been releasing here in the United States for a long time. Things are about to change though, because Huawei is looking to get into the high-end smartphone market with their Ascend P1 and Ascend P1 S.

We got a chance to play with the Ascend P1 and P1 S today while we visited Huawei’s booth at CES. Both phones contain the same specs, except for size. The Ascend P1 S is currently the world’s thinnest smartphone, measuring in at only 6.68mm thin; the Ascend P1 is slightly thicker at 7.69mm.

Both phones feature Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 1GB of RAM, a nice 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display, 4GB of internal storage with support for an additional 64GB via microSD. Powering the phone is a dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor clocked at 1.5GHz. In the front, you have a 1.3-megapixel camera that’s capable of recording video at 720P. In the back, you have an 8-megapixel shooter that’s capable or recording video at 1080P.

The phone is expected to launch sometime towards the end of March.
