Wiko Claims Thinnest 4G Phone

France’s Wiko has presented a smartphone that it claims is the thinnest 4G unit on sale in Germany: the Highway Pure, which is 5.1mm thick and weighs 98g. The phone’s thin profile is possible thanks to the use of AMOLED screen technology, while the weight – which includes the battery – was achieved through new, ultra-light materials, says Wiko.

Gorilla Glass 3 protects the 4.8″ display (1280 x 720). The phone runs Android 4.4 on a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

Wiko is selling the Highway Pure now, for €250 ex VAT.
