The Phone Strap 2 WX06A Is the World’s Smallest Phone

Thursday, March 7th 2013. | Mobile Phones

Apple doesn’t seem to be affected at all with the trend among manufacturers of Android smartphones that compete to make the largest handsets on the planet. The iPhone 5 is still 4-inch large, though it does become a wee bit thinner than its predecessor. You probably think it’s weird but way weirder is a Japanese-based carrier Willcom which recently unveils The Phone Strap 2 WX06A. Such is arguably the smallest and lightest phone on the planet.

Prior to The Phone Strap 2 WX06A, Willcom has actually launched the first iteration. It didn’t seem to draw many attentions, though. So, it announces the updated model which is smaller yet a little thicker. Apparently, this simple yet stupid strategy works. The phone gets global publication as it arouses hype among technobloggers like us.Measuring in at just 32 x 70 x 10.7mm, The Phone Strap 2 WX06A packs a weight of only 32 grams. Seriously, if the owner is not careful, she may forget that she has it and end up buying this petit geezer again. With display not more than 1-inch, the battery is claimed to last up to 12 days which also equals to two hours of talk time.

Anyway, The Phone Strap 2 WX06A can’t function on its own, meaning you have to tandem it with a tablet or a smartphone. You can say that it’s a phone for your smartphone. You know, while smartphones’ enormous display is great for gaming and streaming multimedia files, it’s too awkward on the hand, especially if you’re not a tough big guy with big hand. Actually, HTC has also unveiled similar accessory but as you can see, it goes quickly to oblivion. This one, however, may get different luck in Japan.
