Oppo Finder Android smartphone on major diet

As consumer desire for thinner and thinner smartphones continues we are seeing them becoming increasingly slimmer and today we have news of an Android smartphone that’s been on a major diet, the Oppo Finder. You won’t find the Oppo Finder on general release as it’s targeted for China. Nevertheless we thought that readers would like a look of this ultrathin device.

The Oppo Finder will release in China on June 6 and get this, it’s only 6.65mm thick and so takes the title of world’s thinnest smartphone. Compare it’s size to the Apple iPhone 4S which is 9.3mm thick, the new Samsung Galaxy S3 at 8.6mm, the Galaxy S2 at 8.45mm and even the Motorola Droid RAZR at 7.1mm thick and you can see the difference is quite something. In January the Huawei Ascend P1 S was billed as the slimmest Android smartphone in the world at around 6.68mm so the Oppo Finder even beats that.

News of the Oppo Finder comes to us from the Mobile Indian and though this won’t see a worldwide release we couldn’t resist showing you an image of it and we have to say it does look pretty nice. It will go on sale in China at around 4,000 Yuans, that’s equivalent to around UK £400 or US $630.

Other specs and features of the Oppo Finder are a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video capture and 1GB of RAM. It will run on Android 4.0 ICS with the Oppo interface so you can see that the makers have managed to pack in a lot of decent specs into that small frame.

    This needs to be released in the U.S., it seems to have the perfect size as well as the best design of any Android phone to date. A stock UI, regular updates, multi carrier availability, & reliable battery would easily make this the “perfect phone”.
