The thinnest phone in the world can fit in the credit card

Company Kyocera introduced the phone KY-O1L, with a monochrome e-ink screen and a record low thick body, according to TheVerge. The device will suit people who don’t want the phone take up much space in your pocket and buy the device only for calls.

At the moment credit cards are used by a huge number of people around the world, so the smartphone which the size is comparable to a Bank card, is an excellent solution in a market where most of the producers are trying to make as a large phone in a smaller body.


KY-O1L equipped with a 2.8-inch touchscreen display, a battery of 380 mAh and a communication module LTE. The device is slightly bulkier and heavier than a Bank card and 5.3 mm in thickness and weighs 47g. The smartphone is so simple that there are no cameras or the app store, but users available browser. I wonder how much convenient to sit in the Internet through a tiny display with electronic ink?

For the first time, KY-O1L will be sold only in Japan at a price of 32,000 yen, about 19 000 rubles, which is quite a lot for a simple dialer. What do you think, is it their money?
