At 6.13mm, it'll be the world's thinnest smartphone: the Oppo R809T

You’ve probably never heard of Chinese manufacturer Oppo, yet for a brief period last year, it proudly offered the world’s thinnest smartphone, before losing that title to the Vivo X1 and, later, the more widely known Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra.

But Oppo is preparing to snatch back its crown when it’s reportedly due to launch the snappily-named R809T later this month. At just 6.13mm-thick, the handset is exceptionally sleek in profile, and some 0.32mm thinner than the Alcatel.

Full specs aren’t yet available, but Gizchina reports that the device is expected to feature a 4.5-inch display with HD (1280x720px) resolution, 1GB of RAM and a quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor.

Local pricing in China is said to be around 2,500 yuan (just over $400 USD / €300 EUR), although pricing in other countries is likely to be higher, if the device is ever sold outside of its home market. Oppo launched its quad-core Find 5 Android phablet in some markets last year, featuring a 5-inch display with 1080p resolution and a whopping 441ppi pixel density, in a 6.65mm-thin body.
