Huawei Ascend P1 visits the FCC

Huawei Ascend P1 visits the FCC
The Huawei Ascend P1 has just visited the FCC. The former is a thin handset that had already been launched in China last month and is expected to be released in Europe next month. The FCC visit is the only sign we have seen that would indicate that the 7.7mm thin phone might be coming to the United States. The device carried with it five band HSPA+/UMTS connectivity which makes it compatible with both AT&T and T-Mobile. The handset's brother, the Huawei Ascend P1 S, did not make the trip to the FCC. That model is the thinnest smartphone currently produced, measuring 6.68mm thin and is expected to roll out in North America sometime this quarter.

Both models are the same outside of the difference in girth. That means they feature a 4.3 inch qHD Supper AMOLED display with a pixel density of 256 ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor with the SGX 540 handing the graphics work. 1GB of RAM is on board as is the 4GB of native memory. But don't fret, the handsets both feature a 32GB capacity microSD slot. The 8MP camera on back has an LED flash and can capture video at 1080p. The front facing 1.3MP camera will take your self portrait and enable video chats.

In China, the Huawei Ascend P1 can be purchased for 2,999 Yuan, equivalent to about $475 USD.

Doesn't the P1 have an LTE radio and the P1 S doesn't? I thought that I read that as why the P1 is a little thicker than the P1 S.
