Meant only for China, the Oppo Finder smartphone is just 6.65 mm thick and beats the current thinnest smartphone.
Huawei Ascend P1 S was touted to be the world's thinnest Android smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show in January this year. Even before Ascend P1 S is available worldwide, there is already a new version that is even thinner. Chinese handset maker Oppo has announced that it will take pre-orders of the Finder smartphone that is a mere 6.65 mm thick. Though Finder might be limited only to China, it is indeed a great milestone.
At this moment, the thinnest smartphone in the market is Motorola Droid Razr at 7.1 mm, followed by Galaxy S II that measures 8.45 mm while the iPhone is 9.3 mm thick. The slimmest Android smartphone was supposed to be the Huawei Ascend P1 S, with a 6.68 mm thick form factor.
Oppo Finder will be available in China from June 6 onwards. The Finder will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Oppo's Unique user interface and dual core 1.5 GHz mobile processor. Another surprising feature of this handset includes a 4.3 inch Super Amoled Plus display, an 8 megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p HD video and 1 GB of RAM. For the record, this smartphone will be sold at 4,000 Yuans, which is about Rs 34,860.
Hopefully, by next year we will see smartphones as slim as 5-6mm.
The Oppo F1 comes with a 13-megapixel auto focus rear camera and an 8 megapixel front camera.
The smartphone screen can also be used as a flash in low-light conditions to enhance the picture quality.
Oppo has not revealed anything about the specs of its first F series phone.
According to the new policy any new Oppo handset that develops functional defect within the first 30 days of purchase will be replaced automatically.
As per reports, the Oppo Neo 7 will be launched in India on October 28.
