Huawei To Top The Ascend P1 S With The Launch of “Diamond Series” High-End Android Smartphones

We’ve got to say, we’re extremely impressed lately with how Huawei is stepping their game up and exiting the feature phone market much like Samsung and HTC has done since they first started playing the game.  At CES 2012 we saw a serious game changer when the company introduced their newest flagship handset, the Ascend P1 S, a device that boots the Droid Razr’s title of thinnest phone on the market (7.1mm) coming in at just 6.68mm.  Damn that’s thin.  And if you thought this was impressive, the company’s not done yet.  Huawei is planning to unveil, at MWC this year, a new “Diamond Series” lineup of smartphones dubbed by the company as being the “smartest, fastest and most high-performing smartphones”.  So, if the company is stating they can do even better than the Ascend P1 S, we’ve definitely got to see that.  The Ascend P1 S is sporting a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, a Super AMOLED display rocking Gorilla glass at 4.3-inches, an 8 meg rear facing camera and 1.3 meg front facer.  I can’t wait to see them top that with something else.  Stay tuned to TA because we’ll be covering it like white on rice.  Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Why doesn’t someone give me a phone like this with a hinge and two of these screens?  I want a phone that fits in my pocket with a screen almost the size of a tablet.

      It’s not available yet, but will most likely be available unlocked when it arrives.  However, the device sports AWS bands if Im not mistaken, so it could possibly land on T-Mobile in the states.  Stay tuned to the site as we find out for you. Thanks for reading Talk Android
