World's Thinnest Smartphone Looks like a Flattened iPhone

Steven Blum

The thin keeps coming in from China. First Huawei broke records with their Ascend P1 S – which was a mere 6.68 mm thin – and now another Chinese company called Oppa has released a picture of a new phone that is a full .03mm thinner. The nameless phone is super sleek and sexy, although we've only got a sliver of a picture upon which to base our assumptions.

Already, folks are saying this phone could end up being sued by Apple for being for its iPhone 4-esque aluminum band. Certainly I wouldn't put it past Apple to sue over this design, but I think they'd have a hard time in court since Sony Ericsson was putting aluminum bands on their phones years ago.

Smartphones have dramatically reduced their weight and size in recent years, while increasing their screen sizes. While I'd say thin is still in, I do believe the average smartphone consumer is looking for great build quality, not just thin phones. Just look at the HTC One S or One X – neither is the slimmest phone around, but both have been winning praise for their superior design elements.

But what do you think? Would you buy a phone just because it was super slim? I think I would prefer a phone that simply felt great in my hand. Honestly, my ideal Android would look a lot like this one. Just thinking about delicious Ice Cream Sandwich on a Nokia N9 makes my heart race!
