Japan Launches The World’s Thinnest And Lightest Phone
A 5.3mm (0.2in) thick 4G phone has been
announced by Japan’s biggest telecoms firm NTT
Docomo.
The compact device, which will be released in
Japan next month, is designed to fit inside a card
holder.
It is part of a trend to offer so-called companion
mobile devices to those who already own larger
smartphones.
The phone weighs 47g (1.6oz) and features an
electronic-paper touchscreen, similar to e-books.
It will have limited functionality, with calls, texts
and a net connection but no camera or facility to
work with mobile apps.
The phone – dubbed Card Keitai KY-01L – will be
made by electronics firm Kyocera.
The “simple, easy-to-carry” card phone is seen by
NTT Docomo as a useful extra device for people
who have already purchased large-screen
smartphones.
NTT Docomo describes the mobile as the “world’s
thinnest” but that claim is likely to be disputed by
other phone makers.
The Oppo R5 was 4.85mm thick when it was
released in 2014, followed the same year by the
Vivo X5 Max at 4.75mm.
And in 2016, Motorola released the Moto Z which
was just under 5.2mm thick.
The KY-01L will cost 32,000 yen ($280, £216)
NGN 101,000
