The new ‘world’s thinnest phone’ has been launched and it's the size of a credit card

Its being dubbed the world's smallest phone.

Japanese electronics manufacturer Kyocera has just announced a new contender for the title of ‘world’s thinnest phone’.

Say hello to the KY-O1L...

world's smallest phone

The “card phone” KY-O1L is made by Kyocera and is coming to NTT Docomo next month.

The phone is billed as a feature phone, which we think means somewhere smart and a dumb phone, and is just 5.3mm thick and weighing a meagre 47g.

It has a 2.8-inch monochrome e-paper screen, LTE connectivity, and a 380mAh battery. Unfortunately for users, there’s no camera or app store, but you do get a web browser. I mean, if you buy this phone, you probably don't want a camera anyway so it's all good.

If you want to see what the phone is capable of, have a look at the video below.

The KY-O1L phone will set you back 32,000 yen, or about €249. Would you buy it?
