The trend of smartphones getting slimmer isn’t likely going anywhere any time soon.  Over time we’ve seen them cut down by half, more famously and notably with models like the  Motorola Droid RAZR.  Yes, there have been a couple of handsets that come in even thinner, but all of those are about to get beaten.  According to the leaked shot above, it seems that ZTE will be launching the slimmest Android powered device to-date, even more so than the Huawei Ascend P1 S.  Engadget spotted some shots of this rumored ZTE Athena, which is said to be only 6.2mm thick.

About the specs, word is that it will feature  a 720p display, Cortex-A15 chip, and up to 64GB of internal storage. The processor will be multi-core, according to Engadget source. Also the device will feature MiFlavor UI – which was showcased at MWC running on the ZTE Era. After their first ever superphone the ZTE Era, there are chances that this device might be its next flagship, as the specs are really spectacular.

I think its time we stop thinking about ZTE as yet another Chinese brand, and consider them a dark horse in the Android race.  Tell us what you think about the Athena, and ZTE in general, in the comments below.

    If looks, feels and works as the specs suggest, bring it on! Given the price they’ll be able to bring it out for and the mandatory warranty period, why not?

    As a semi-related aside, IMHO Steve Jobs was right about there being a maximum useful size for a smart phone screen, for one device that will sit in a wide variety of hands. I reckon that “thin and light” is the main area for development. The current ipod touch is where I reckon smart phone are headed. Having said that, I’m about to buy a Samsung note :-) But then I am a “bigger is better” kind of person lol
