Rumored quad-core ZTE Athena is only 6.2mm thick

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.
