The World’s Thinnest Smartphone Could Soon be a Windows Phone

The prestigious title of ‘World’s Thinnest Smartphone’ currently belongs to a brand most people have never heard of. Hailing from China, a company called Oppo recently pinched the crown with a new phone called the ‘Finder’.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform may get another feather in its cap soon, as reports suggest that Oppo will soon be joining as a manufacturing partner. What this means is that the company’s prowess for making incredibly good-looking, thin, and affordable phones, will be transferred to Windows Phone in the future.

As a reference, the Oppo Finder is a stylish phone that’s just 6.65mm thick. It features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system. Unfortunately this beast isn’t available anywhere other than China, although thankfully the low SIM-Free price of $400 means that you can whack international shipping on top without losing the sense of a bargain.

The rumours suggest that Microsoft has selected Oppo to become a manufacturer for future smartphones that will run on the Windows Phone 8 platform. We’re told it chose Oppo for its strengths in making incredibly stylish and well-built devices at a low price, which will make a neat match for Microsoft’s software.

We’re excited to see what Oppo and Microsoft can come up with, and if it’s anything like the Finder then Windows Phone fans will be in for a real treat.
