The world’s thinnest phone announced

The world’s thinnest smartphone has been announced, the Kazam Tornado 348.

Kazam, a british manufacturer has announced the release of the world’s thinnest phone measuring in at just 5.15mm, almost 2mm thinner than the iPhone 6 (which measures in at 6.9mm thick).

This handset isn’t just thin though, Kazam have created a phone with a decent specification and at a friendly price.

The Kazam Tornado 348, runs Android KitKat 4.4, will come in white and black, and has a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 16GB internal memory, 4.8inch 720p display and all for just £250.

The overall dimensions of the device are 139.80 x 67.40 x 5.15mm.

The Kazam Tornado 348 does look very smart and does have a certain resemblance to Apple’s iPhone 6 but it isn’t likely to put any pressure on the mobile giants.

The spec isn’t as good as we would have hoped, however this may be to keep the costs down.

The handset will go on sale in the UK from November for £250.
