First Pics Of The World's Thinnest Smartphone, The NEC Medias, Leak

NEC is apparently to unveil the “world’s thinnest smartphone” (7.7mm) on Thursday, if a “leak” covered on a Japanese blog today is to be believed. That leak, reported today by Akihabara News, is actually a few days old (see this Japanese blog post, for example).

But the “Draft Life with blog” [JP] unearthed what appear to be the first pictures of the device today – and if these photos are real, we are in for a very thin and very pretty Android phone. The Galaxy S II is 8.49mm thick.

Here’s what Japanese blog Datacider says will be the main specs:

  • size: 127×62×7.7mm
  • weight: 105g
  • Android 2.2 as the OS
  • 4-inch LCD with 854×480 resolution
  • 5.1MP camera
  • 800MHz CPU
  • three buttons on the bottom (from left to right: menu, home, back) plus on/off button at the top left (see pic below)
  • digital TV tuner
  • e-wallet function

Needless to say, please take this information with a grain of salt. We will report back on Thursday when Docomo shows their new cell phone line-up.
