Huawei Ascend P1 will arrive bearing Ice Cream Sandwich in August

Huawei's skinny jeans-friendly smartphone is officially set to slip into tight pockets next month

Huawei has announced that the super-slim Huawei Ascend P1 is set to hit UK shelves in August.

Although 1mm thicker than the even thinner Ascend P1 S, the Ascend P1 is still rocking a svelte 7.7mm body which manages to cram in a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and an 8MP and 1.3MP rear and front-facing camera combo, in addition to 4GB of onboard storage with microSD support for up to 32GB.

The Huawei Ascend P1's 4.3in 960x540 SUPER AMOLED display should give Ice Cream Sandwich a nice vibrant punch, though it's unclear as to whether or not a Jelly Bean update is in the works at this time.

The Huawei Ascend P1 will be available for free from a £26 a month contract with Vodafone next month, so stay tuned for a more specific release date in the near future.
