I am told by @vedhaspatkar that in yesterday’s presentation, Apple claimed that the iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone around. I didn’t watch the presentation, as I have no use for Apple’s reality distortion field, so I cannot verify that. I have also checked Apple’s website and there is no mention of the iPhone 5 as the world’s thinnest smartphone.
Still, for the records, the iPhone 5 at 7.6mm thickness is not the thinnest smartphone around. That honour belongs to the Oppo Finder, a Chinese brand product running Android ICS, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and sporting a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. It is 6.65mm thick, which is significantly thinner than the iPhone 5. The Finder was released into the market in June 2012.
