New smartphone claims “world’s thinnest” title

TCL-S850

A new smartphone by the Chinese company TCL Communication has serious claims against the “world’s thinnest smartphone” title.

The TCL S850 smartphone is indeed just 6.45 mm thick besting the thinnest smartphone to date – BBK’s Vivo X1, which is 6.55 mm thick.

The TCL S850 offers a MediaTek MTK6577 processor at 1.2 GHz, which offers two Cortex-A9 cores and an integrated PowerVR SGX531 GPU. Other specs include 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, two cameras (1.3 MP front and 8 MP rear). The S850 offers a 4.7-inch AMOLED display at 1280 x 720 pixels and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The market price of the TCL S850 is unknown but it is expected to retail for around USD 400, which is the price of its main competitor – the BBK Vivo X1 smartphone – which, by the way offers similar specs.

Next to the S850 TCL has the S520 smartphone – targeting females out there. The device packs a dual-core chip, 4 GB of internal storage, Android 4.0, 5 MP camera and a 4-inch display.

The official launch of the TCL S850 is expected in early 2013.
