Camera-Free Credit Card Sized Phone To Release In Japan

Check out the KY-O1L, the credit card-sized 'world's thinnest phone'

The compact device, which will be released in Japan next month, is created to fit inside a card holder.

Docomo's lightest and thinnest smartphone in the world has a footprint very similar to a credit card, and merely weights 47 grams with 5.3 mm thickness.

The Kyocera does however, offer LTE and a web browser, along with a strong-enough 380mAh battery - which is roughly equivalent to that of a smartwatch.

Business cards are still an integral part of life for most Japanese workers, so it's a good opportunity for country's largest carrier make the most of the situation with a phone that can fit in a cardholder.

On the off chance that you've been interested with respect to what Instagram may look like on an e-paper screen and happen to live in Japan, the Kyocera Card Keitai KY-O1L may be of interest.

It will have limited functionality, with calls, texts and a net connection but no camera or facility to work with mobile apps. The phone costs 32,000 Yen, or about $285 (approximately Rs 21,000).

Ben Wood, chief analyst at research firm CCS Insight, said: "This flurry of so-called companion phones reflects the desire of phone makers to try and find new sales opportunities in a saturated market".

Now, obviously, this isn't a full-blown smartphone we are talking about here.

As the gaming phone trend emerges, other phone manufacturers and looking to right the wrongs of the last 10 years by creating small phones that professionals from the '80s and '90s once longed for.
