UK company Kazam has announced the Tornado 348 ‘the World’s thinnest smartphone’.  The phone which is made of an aluminium-magnesium alloy uni-body is 5.15mm thin.

The phone has a 4.8” AMOLED 1280 x 780 HD Gorilla Glass screen with Google’s KitKat 4.4.2, 8 megapixel camera, a powerful MediaTek octa-core processor, and a price of just £249. The device is also supported by Kazam’s customer proposition – one year screen protection and Kazam Rescue service.
