The Japanese company Kyocera has announced a new ultra-compact smartphone. Model KY-O1L is interesting, first of all, for its size. Unlike the compact phone Zanco tiny t1 , the Japanese decided to fight for thickness.
A device based on a self-written OS can easily fit into a wallet, since its dimensions are no larger than a regular bank card. The only thing that distinguishes a device from a credit card is a thickness of 5.3 mm.
The manufacturer decided to abandon the IPS-matrix, setting a monochrome E-Ink display with a diagonal of 2.8-inches. The miniature smartphone supports LTE networks. The baby weighs only 47 grams.
Powered by a tiny 380 mAh battery. In order not to increase the thickness of the body, the developers decided to abandon the camera. In KY-O1L it is not.
No in the smartphone and the built-in store, but there is a browser. Kyocera KY-O1L will be available next month. The recommended price for the device is $ 300 or 20 thousand rubles. [The Verge ]
