While Huawei’s Ascend P1 S currently holds the title of “world’s thinnest smartphone,” it may very will be a short-lived title reign. Fellow China-based manufacturer Oppo is planning on releasing a 6.65mm thick (or should we say thin?) device that is 0.03mm thinner than Huawei’s lean machine. Is that even measurable?

Pictured above is an image of this skinny up and comer snagged by the lads at Engadget. It’s unclear what sort of hardware Oppo has managed to pack inside the device, or what it will be called, but the phone’s metallic trim seems a wee bit Apple-inspired. Hopefully Oppo’s engineers are placing an emphasis on the phone’s internals and not just keeping it on a diet. We’ll definitely be keeping our eyes and ears open for this one.
