It looks like we have yet another contender for the ‘World’s Thinnest Smartphone’ with the ZTE Athena. The Athena apparently is only 6.22mm thick and beats out the likes of the 6.68mm thick Huawei Ascend P1 S or Oppo’s 6.65mm thick Finder. The smartphone which has been shrouded in mystery has been getting some attention on Sina Weibo thanks to a keen terminal device strategy director from ZTE itself.
Mr Lu as he is called hasn’t really gone into the specifics of the phone but what we do know is that the Athena will feature a 720p display, Cortex-A15 chip (rumors say multi-core) and up to 64GB of internal storage. In addition to that, it will also come with a ‘Miflavor UI’ which was previewed back in Mobile World Congress earlier this year. Beyond that, Lu also dropped a few hints that indicated that there will be several color options but that black one we can vaguely see from the image looks quite good as it is even though it does look just a little like the Motorola RAZR’s back-end.
