Sometimes few gadgets appear so small that they simply look like toys. Hence, today in this article we will show you the world’s smallest, thinnest, and lightest mobile phone, as it has the size of credit card, has the entry for operator chip, sends text messages and even makes phone calls.
Meet The World’s Smallest, Thinnest, And Lightest Phone
In a time when the size of smartphones does not stop growing, with examples reaching 7-inches, having a smartphone the size of a credit card may seem nonsense.
Let’s get to know the Kyocera KY-01L, which brings a fantastic screen of 2.8-inches, monochrome in e-paper. But calm, the battery lasts “a life”.
This smartphone was developed by Kyocera, and the KY-01L aims to be the world’s smallest and thinnest smartphone, presenting a thickness of 5.3 mm. In terms of the screen, it features a 2.8-inch monochrome screen and a 380mAh battery and not only that, but even this phone also has 4G connectivity as well.
Moreover, this extraordinary phone is revealed as the “lightest” mobile phone on the market, its 47 grams make it a featherweight with a credit card-sized size.
As we can see in the presentation video, the equipment does not have all the functions we find on a conventional smartphone, nor the ability to install applications, but offers what essential for a phone: calls, sending and receiving text messages and browsing the Internet.
The Kyocera KY-01L will be marketed by Japan’s NTT Docomo as early as November. We do not know if it will eventually reach the international market and at what price. Basically, its approach is clear, as pointed out by the chairman of the Japanese operator: Kazuhiro Yoshizawa: “Considering that the screens of smartphones are getting bigger, many people are asking for a simpler and easier to charge phone”.
In fact, many users do not want more than a mobile phone to make and receive calls, they will probably be able to receive text messages but more than that is not a necessity. That is why many small mobile phones are still sold, without great “intelligence” and with keys.
The 2.8-inch e-paper technology screen ensures the long battery life. While this phone does not have any camera or other precious things that you do not need. Hence, this allows the device to cost around $280 in Japan. So, what do you think about this? Simply share all your views and thoughts in the comment section below.
