Oppo who? 6.2mm ZTE Athena claims the skinny crown for itself

Oppo who? 6.2mm ZTE Athena claims the skinny crown for itselfWell that's just rude. It's been what – three days? – since we shone the spotlight on the Oppo Finder and its record-breaking 6.65mm skinniness, and here we have another anorexic smartphone kicking it right back into anonymity.

It's called the ZTE Athena, and has just been snapped in some Mr Blurrycam action over in China with a side-on profile measuring a decidedly waifish 6.2mm.

Credit has to go to ZTE for not having to resort to the second decimal place in claiming the crown, in fact the 0.45mm difference between it and the Oppo is so vast you might actually be able to see it.

The pics themselves, which were surfaced by Chinese site Weibo, don't say too much on their own. Presumably the snap of the Athena sitting side by side with an iPhone is to illustrate just how much thinner it is, but the quality is so poor you can barely make out where one ends and the other begins.

Aside from its skinny dimensions, Weibo's source isn't revealing much. Given the promised 720p screen size it's assumed we're talking about a 4in-plus display, while we're also promised a dual-core ARM Cortex A15 processor, 64GB of storage and Android Ice Cream Sandwich spiced up with some ZTE MiFlavor UI goodness.

That's about it – there's nothing as far as price, release date or international availability is concerned.

And I've managed to get all the way to the end without saying either “thin on the ground” or “slim pickings”. Well, until now obviously.

FFS!

We want a longer battery life, not a phone that gives you a paper cut every time you try and pick it up from the edge.
