There were plenty of companies parading around super slim handsets at CES, including Alcatel, whose One Touch Idol Ultra was declared the thinnest smartphone in the world. The Ultra Idol measures in at 6.45mm, but Huawei’s Richard Yu is promising we will see an even thinner device at Mobile World Congress.
Naturally, the phone will be the followup to last year’s Huawei Ascend P1 S, the phone that once held the title of world’s thinnest. What might logically be dubbed the Huaweid Ascend P2 S looks to reclaim the crown.
Yu also says to expect an octa-core processor in the near future. We’d act surprised, but after Huawei dropped their own in-house quad-core chip at last year’s MWV, nothing is out of the question. Will the eight core technology be married to the ultra-thin Ascend P1 followup? That’s left for speculation.
