World's slimmest phone measures 5.9 mm thick

Samsung Electronics today at 3GSM 2007 launched its brand new Ultra Edition II handsets. The Ultra Edition II portfolio consists of two sliders, the Ultra Edition 10.9 (U600) and the Ultra Edition 12.1 (U700); a metallic clamshell, the Ultra Edition 9.6 (U300); and a candy bar handset, the Ultra Edition 5.9 (U100). Each of these designs offers 3 megapixel cameras, high-speed web connectivity, as well as extensive multimedia and audio capabilities.

“We believe that the Samsung Ultra Edition II range completely embodies everything that today’s consumers are seeking in a mobile in terms of unique design and flawless performance,” said Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Network Business. “We believe that the striking looks, exclusive feel and slim design of these devices, combined with uncompromised performance and function, will make the Ultra Edition II range an instant attraction to business users, fashion conscious consumers and multimedia enthusiasts.”

Of all its new handsets, Samsung is most strongly emphasizing that its new lineup contains what it claims to be the slimmest phone today: the Ultra Edition 5.9 (U100), besting its big brother, the Samsung X820. The Ultra Edition 5.9 (U100) official measurements of the sporty handset are 105.5 x 50 x 5.9 mm and features a 1.93-inch TFT.

The Ultra Edition II will be released in the European Market in the first quarter of this year.

Back in May, Samsung announced that it had created the world's slimmest cell phone with the SGH-X820. That phone was 6.9mm thick, featured a 2MP camera and weighed in at 66 grams.

You can get your housing or cover plates machined out of 316 steel if you hand over your originals for about.. $400

If you were truely worried.

Alternatively, you could also draw it up in CAD yourself for a little less. Ask a CNC Machine shop if they can do precision cuts down to 1/16th of an inch and they should be able to carve out just about any crevice in a cell housing.

Except maybe this new Sung... probably has arteries in there..
