Japan Launches The World Thinnest And Lightest Phone by Techcribsblog(m): 2:53pm On Oct 19, 2018
A 5.3mm (0.2in) thick 4G phone has been announced by Japan’s biggest telecoms firm NTT Docomo.



The compact device, which will be released in Japan next month, is designed to fit inside a card holder.

It is part of a trend to offer so-called companion mobile devices to those who already own larger smartphones.

The phone weighs 47g (1.6oz) and features an electronic-paper touchscreen, similar to e-books.

It will have limited functionality, with calls, texts and a net connection but no camera or facility to work with mobile apps.

The phone – dubbed Card Keitai KY-01L – will be made by electronics firm Kyocera.

The “simple, easy-to-carry” card phone is seen by NTT Docomo as a useful extra device for people who have already purchased large-screen smartphones.

NTT Docomo describes the mobile as the “world’s thinnest” but that claim is likely to be disputed by other phone makers.

The Oppo R5 was 4.85mm thick when it was released in 2014, followed the same year by the Vivo X5 Max at 4.75mm.

And in 2016, Motorola released the Moto Z which was just under 5.2mm thick.

The KY-01L will cost 32,000 yen ($280, £216)

NGN 101,000

Japan is just too way ahead of the world when it comes to technology, followed by China, no wonder they brought in TECNO to the Nigerian market.

Good...but it has limited functionality.

You cant takepictures with it for example.

Sorry...but not value for money. With that same N101000, I can buy a big phone ...or even several small Nokias that can do the same thing and more.

Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, NGF, Abdulaziz Yari who is the Governor of Zamfara state is troubled by the fact that he and some northern states governors in Nigeria can not pay to state workers the minimum wage of N18,000.00 ( EIGHTEEN THOUSAND NIGERIAN NAIRA )

But at the same time they have money to fuel the vehicle of a large entourage of security personnel and personal aides and even lodge them in big hotels where they incurred huge bills for the state government.

They have money to lavish in wasteful projects.

They have a lot to learn from Japan.

Japan do not have crude oil the way Nigeria is blessed.

But they invest in human capital through technological know how!

As long as government in Nigeria do not want to key into Agriculture but instead wait for crude oil money they will continue to remain underdeveloped.

It makes no sense to me to invest $280 in a device with limited functions. Can't install app,no camera just imagine that in 2018. (My opinion)
