Huawei Ascend P1 S
What you're looking at here is the slimmest smartphone in the world...for the time being, at least. Chinese telecoms giant Huawei is not too well known in the UK, but you can expect that to change when this mobile launches later in the year. The Ascend P1 S has a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and the latest version of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich) - all in a chassis that measures just 6.68mm thick. Huawei's other new mobile - the Ascend P1 - offers similar features but trades a slightly thicker profile (7.69mm) for a more powerful battery.
ETA: July 2012 onwards

Great fun as they are I am loathed to get another 'smartphone' until battery technology gets better. My existing HTC Desire is a great phone but the battery barely lasts a working day and thats with it on "idle" with internet turned off and the brightness turned down. So if I can't enjoy the phone what really is the point. It is a real shame but surely it defeats the purpose if it has to be on charge all day and carry spare batteries around.
(and yes I have bought two replacement batteries).
I don`t care how wonderfulthese phones are, I paid enough for my Samsung S2 which is perfect and will easily last me the 2 years and more (hopefully). Do these companies really think i`m going to throw out one smart phone after 3 months just because another smarter ones arrived? I ain`t made of money and I thankfully have more sense.
Bother me in 3 years.
