ZTE’s upcoming Athena handset is looking to take the title of ‘World’s Thinnest Handset’ from Huawei and Oppo. The unannounced ‘Athena’ handset boasts a thickness of 6.2mm but is able to cram in a 720p display and a Cortex-A15 chip of unknown speed.
The device may never leave China, but it’s an amazing feat considering all the technology inside of it. It’s making quite a big splash on China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo, as ZTE is doing a pretty big teaser campaign for the face prior to its official announcement. The phone will also boast up to 64GB internal storage and a variant of Android 4.0.4 running ZTE’s skin called “Miflavor UI.”
It’s also got what looks like a Kevlar backing, similar to the Motorola RAZR, which is interesting. More to come on this handset soon, we hope.
