It seems like every week a new phone is released that keeps breaking the world’s thinnest smartphone award, and NEC now has something pushing the boundaries even more. The MEDIAS ES N-05D is a high-end Android smartphone that is only 6.7mm thick, and is most likely the world’s thinnest smartphone. Specs include a 4.3-inch screen with a 720×1280 resolution, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 8.1MP camera and a 1400mAh battery. Everything is powered by Android 2.3, which is slightly disappointing.
It is amazing that a phone this thin can pack such high-specs, as only two years ago phones were twice as thick, with nowhere near this kind of power. The phone will be hitting shelves sometime in February or March, and will be available on Japanese carrier NTT Docomo. As of now, the phone will remain exclusive to Japan, but there has been talk of it coming to other regions. Hopefully those talks will come true, as this phone could be a hit in the US. Would you buy the MEDIAS ES N-05D? Can phones get too thin? Let us know in the comments!
