The Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is impressive for one reason only: According to the company, it’s the world’s slimmest smartphone, at just over 0.25 inches thick. Apple’s iPhone 5, by comparison, is about .05 inches thicker.
Other specs include a 4.7-inch AMOLED display with 720p resolution, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera. The phone runs Android 4.1, and was quite smooth in my hands-on time. Unfortunately, the Idol Ultra’s lack of 4G LTE connectivity means you’ve got a slim-to-none chance of seeing this phone in the United States.
