Oppo building world’s thinnest, 6.13mm phone: quad-core and coming on April 26
Leaked image of the Oppo R809T
Oppo built the Find 3 that became the world’s thinnest at its time but was later outdone by devices from Alcatel and Vivo measuring around 6.5mm.
The Oppo R809T in contrast is noticeably slimmer. It is also expected to run on the quad-core Mediatek MT6589 chip with 1GB RAM and have a 4.5-inch 720p display. That sounds like a good balance between performance and features, as a 1080p display would probably choke the MediaTek chip.
Pricing will be slightly higher than most other Chinese smartphones though as Oppo plans to ask 2500 yuan or around $403 off contract. In comparison to other devices from manufacturers like Samsung and Apple that still looks fairly cheap, though.

Oppo builds excellent devices. A good mid-ranger around $350 could do excellent sales.

what about lenovo phones? it's from china too. is it better than oppo?
seriously, all chinese phones that use mediatek CPU has GPS problem like mine. That's why I sold my $130 chinese phone. Not only has GPS problem, but also heat & battery problem.

Mother of god. That's thin, but remember its still a rumor/leak. So its not entirely true ... yet.

who cares about phone thickness (within reason). These manufacturers are sacrificing battery capacity to keep the phone thing.. IMO, the wrong way to go.

huh. I was expecting it to be another 5"+ phone. 4.5" and that thin is impressive. Put enogh storage and a big enough battery, I might consider it.

1GB of RAM? Fail. Android needs the RAM much more than it needs quad core processors.
