CES: Alcatel shows off 'world's thinnest smartphone'

Alcatel has used their CES showcase to launch the "world's thinnest smartphone," the One Touch Idol Ultra.
Additionally, the company unveiled what it claims to be the lightest smartphone in the world, the One Touch Idol.

At 6.45mm thick, the company claims the Ultra is the thinnest in the world, and while its only marginally thinner than others, the claim is likely true. The phone boasts a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.7-inch HD OLED screen, Android 4.2 and an 8MP camera.

The world's lightest smartphone, the Idol, clocked in at 110g. That phone features a 4.7-inch IPS LCD screen, Android 4.2, 'premium brushed metallic finishes,' and an 8MP camera.

Alcatel did not reveal the pricing or launch date for either phone.

I disagree, but I do think they look very generic.

They definetly could have had a better picture. It's cool that it's that thin though.

Thin is overrated. I have a Note II and it is very thin. Sometimes I find it difficult to handle because it is so thin.
If this phone is thinner than that then it would be too thin in my mind.
