Huawei Ascend P1 S

Huawei Ascend P6 takes the crown as ‘world’s thinnest’ smartphone

While having a thin smartphone surely is something many of us consider while making a purchase decision. Something decently thin with great battery life sounds a bit more reasonable. Not everyone feels the same way however, because Huawei is back, again, with what they're calling the world's thinnest smartphone. Their new Ascend P6 takes the cake.

Huawei’s 6.68mm Ascend P1 S gets March launch in China

The last time we saw Huawei's Ascend P1 S, it was hanging out at CES, looking down on all the "new" smartphones that dared to show up running Gingerbread. Now the Chinese manufacturer has laid down its plans for the super-slim phone's release, at least on their native soil. Tech.Sina reports that the 6.68mm phone will be heading to mainland China in late March. As Huawei extends its market share across the globe, you can expect this phone to show up in Europe not long after that, and perhaps on US carriers eventually.
