Yesterday, the company unveiled a 5.3-mm-thick phone weighing 47-gram. This visiting card kind of device features an electronic paper touchscreen display. It is somewhat the same as the one found in a digital book reader.
The World’s Thinnest Phone to Arrive Next Month
The phone functions will be limited to calls, short messages and internet connection. The world’s thinnest device will not have a camera and is not compatible with mobile apps. It is actually launched as a second device that people will like to hold.
While telling about the Business card size device, President Kazuhiro Yoshizawa said:
“As smartphone screens become increasingly larger, many people asked for a simple, easy-to-carry mobile phone,”
The name of the “card phone” is KY-O1L. It has a 2.8-inch monochrome e-paper screen, LTE connectivity, and a 380mAh battery.
Impress Watch has published the actual video of World’s Thinnest SmartPhone:
Anyway, the KY-O1L phone will cost around 37,000 Pkr. Though the phone is not cheap when we keep in view its functions but many those people who want a compact device will love to buy it anyway.
