In a world where things are constantly being built bigger, the world’s slimmest smartphone is due for release in November.

The Kazam Tornado 348 is just 5.15mm thin, which is very slim especially when compared to the new iPhone 6 that is 6.9mm thick, the Sony Xperia Z3 at 7.3mm, and the 8.1mm Samsung Galaxy S5.

At 95.5g, it is also noticeably light.

In fact, the handset is so thin that it has been confirmed by Guinness World Records as being the world’s thinnest, which is a pretty great achievement for Kazam, which only began last November.

Given that there will be some who have never heard of the smartphone company, especially when put against the likes of Apple and Samsung, the Kazam Tornado 348 has pretty good specs, especially given that at £249, it is a very reasonably priced smartphone.

Those thinking of sizing-down can expect to find a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, as well as 1GB of RAM.

Camera-wise, the device comes with an 8MP rear camera, which is the same amount of megapixels that the iPhone 6 is carrying, as well as a 5MP front facing camera for all selfie lovers.

The Kazam Tornado 348 will run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and boasts a 4.8 inch display with a 1280 x 720 resolution, which again isn’t so bad for a budget smartphone.

Storage-wise, there is only the one option of 16GB to choose from, which may not suit everybody’s smartphone needs. Unfortunately, due to the slim design of the handset there also isn’t the option for microSD support.

When it come to the aesthetics, there is no doubt that the Kazam Tornado 348 has a very similar look to the iPhone 6.

Users can expect the usual WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS, however it is missing 4G and NFC, which will possibly hinder its popularity. However, there is good news when it comes to the battery as the device packs a 2050mAh battery, which should provide users with a fairly decent amount of life.
