Huawei have announced two new Android smartphones over at CES and unlike most of the announcements taking place there, these devices, the Huawei Ascend P1 and Ascend P1 S, are actually coming to Australia. The release date given to us by Huawei Australia is April 2012 with no partners announced just yet.

The Ascend P1 S is actually a fairly nice looking device — mainly because it seems to be riffing off the Galaxy S II — and it has the specs to boot.

  • 4.3-inch 960×540 256ppi (qHD) Super AMOLED Capacitive Display (Gorilla Glass)
  • Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich”
  • 1.5GHz Dual-Core OMAP4460 CPU
  • 8MP BSI Camera (Dual Flash / HDR) / 1.3MP HD Front Camera
  • 3G of unknown bands
  • 1800mAH Battery
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth
  • 6.68mm in thickness, 64.8mm in width

The Ascend P1 mimics the specs of the Ascend P1 S expect for a smaller 1670mAh battery and is slightly thicker (though still thin) at 7.69mm.

The devices will come in three colours: metallic black, ceramic white and cherry-blossom pink with more colors to come. Huawei says they’ll match your personality and whatever you’re doing — quite frankly we’d be happy with just black and white, but choice is always nice.

Huawei never seem to disappoint when it comes to pricing as well, though nothing has been announced just yet, we’re not expecting you to have to sell a kidney (or any other body part) to buy yourself an Ascend P1 S — also credit where it’s due for putting Ice Cream Sandwich on the device at launch.

Would this pull-like-a-Dino?

Contrary to all the comments to date – this seems to be running a vanilla ICS possibly making it nearly purely a “Google” phone. If that is the case then updates should be routine – let alone the fact that it is running the latest Android anyway and there is no “update” on the horizon anyway.
Also Huawei are claiming 13hr talk time!
Finally the thicker phone is to accommodate 4G – don’t know if that will be offered in Oz.

Impressive package, if the price is right it could be a modders favourite even if Huawei doesn’t provide updates,…

:/ Problem with the  Huawei phones is they dont seem to get upgrades. though so far the specs on the phones have been pritty basic. maybe this one will break the mold
