World’s thinnest smartphone revealed

European smartphone manufacturer KAZAM has just dropped the news that it will be launching the world’s thinnest smartphone next month.

The Tornado 348 is a frankly ridiculous 5.15 millimetres thick, which is nearly two millimetres thinner than the iPhone 6.

However, it doesn’t look like it’ll stint on the quality. Armed with an 8MP camera with 1080p video and a 5MP camera on the front for selfies, the Tornado 348 could become a serious player.

Boasting a 12-centimetre, 1280×780 Gorilla Glass screen and housing a MediaTek True Octa-core MT6592 processor, it is pretty rapid as well.

When the KAZAM Tornado 348 launches in mid-November it will retail at £249, so not out of many people’s budget either.

Find out more at Kazam’s website and for more incredible, mind-bending technology, the latest issue of How It Works has articles on such amazing topics as Google Glass and identity detectors.
