Smartphones with 4G LTE chips have become more of a necessity in this day and age, especially in markets like the U.S. and even China to a great extent. And Chinese OEM Oppo has just announced its latest handset known as the R3, which is supposed to be the world’s slimmest 4G LTE smartphone.

At 6.3mm, the smartphone is certainly one of the slimmest smartphones around. Other specs of the Oppo R3 include a 5 inch 720p display, a 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a meager 2,420 mAh battery and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with the company’s ColorOS skin on top. The handset will be available in China for 2,290 CNY which is the local equivalent of $368.

As with any Chinese smartphone, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the smartphone venture its way out of the region anytime soon. But third party retailers might be able to sell the device globally as well.
