NEC To Unveil 6.7mm Thin Android Phone In Japan

NEC is the latest Japanese company to enter into the Android smartphone market and has recently launched one of their thinnest smartphones to date, the MEDIAS ES N-05D. In fact, it was only a few months ago that the company introduced the world's thinnest Android phone device.

The latest MEDIAS ES N-05D is 6.7mm thin and will be made available in the market in either February or March this year through Japan's leading network carrier, NTT Docomo. At present, neither the manufacturer nor the carrier has disclosed the release date, or cost of the device. It has confirmed, that for the time being the device will only be allowed in Japan.

Should the company choose to go global and launch the smartphone in other markets of the world, then there might be some changes made to the android based phone.

As well as its thin size, there are lots of other features which will be working in favour of this device, including the very powerful 1.5 GHz dual core processor as well as its ability to connect to Casio's G-Shock GB-6900 watch, reported Softpedia.

Whilst NEC is trying to make its presence felt in the smartphones market, reports suggest that the company incurred a loss of $1.3 billion due to starting its mobile division, as well as the devastating Thailand floods.
