Oppo cuts gadget waistline to achieve world's thinnest phone
When it comes to smartphones, thinness is the driving force behind almost all latest designs. And if you want the world’s thinnest, that’s just been redefined by Chinese phone maker Oppo. Its unnamed new creation is only 0.26-inch (6.65mm) thin, enough to guarantee it the world’s slimmest smartphone title.
It takes the crown from the Huawei Ascend P1 S which is a hair thicker and a hair in this case measures 0.03mm thick. The Oppo smartphone has a sleek design with a silver, possibly metallic side finish. It’s also featuring the three standard buttons for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich so chances are it runs on Google’s latest.
There’s also a three-pin contact for hooking this up to a dock, but that’s about all the obvious details we have so far. Is such an ultra-slim device what you dream of? Or is there a limit to acceptable thinness?
