UK company Kazam has announced the Tornado 348 Ã¢â‚¬Ëœthe WorldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s thinnest smartphoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â The phone which is made of an aluminium-magnesium alloy uni-body is 5.15mm thin.
The phone has a 4.8Ã¢â‚¬Â AMOLED 1280 x 780 HD Gorilla Glass screen with GoogleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s KitKat 4.4.2, 8 megapixel camera, a powerful MediaTek octa-core processor, and a price of just Ã‚Â£249. The device is also supported by KazamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s customer proposition Ã¢â‚¬â€œ one year screen protection and Kazam Rescue service.
Kazam is the brainchild of James Atkins and Michael Coombes, both previously employees of Taiwanese smartphone company HTC. The company is based in offices in London’s Mayfair but has a 50-strong R&D team based in China where the company’s smartphones are designed and built.
Michael Coombes, CEO at Kazam Mobile Limited, said:
Ã¢â‚¬ËœWe are delighted to be unveiling WorldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s slimmest smartphone. Kazam remains focused on innovating in areas often overlooked, the Kazam Tornado 348 combines superior design with heavy hitting features, all backed up by the Kazam proposition, adding real value for consumers.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
Jeffrey Ju, SVP and general manager of wireless communication at MediaTek, said:
Ã¢â‚¬ËœKazam is a prime example of the changing face of mobile technology Ã¢â‚¬â€œ hitting the market with the slimmest mobile phone packed with our advanced, high performance MT6592 True Octa-core SoC. This partnership stands as testament to the way we work with an inclusive ecosystem to drive affordable technology into the hands of everyone.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
