The Kazam Tornado 348 has been unveiled to the world’s press over the weekend and it is being touted as the thinnest smartphone on the market to date. This claim is all the more interesting since the handset is being priced at just £249 in the UK, which is much more affordable than many of the other super slim handsets.
The low price is due to its modest specs, which include a 4.8 inch screen with a 720p resolution, an eight core processor clocked at 1.7GHz and 1GB of RAM. It sounds sufficiently powerful and should run Android KitKat with ease, but it is not going to trouble the 1080p and QHD alternatives, which are at least twice the price.
What you do get is a device that is just 5.15 millimetres thick and weighs a fraction over 95 grams. It also has an eight megapixel camera on the back and a five megapixel selfie-friendly snapper up front.
With an aesthetic style that is somewhat reminiscent of the iPhone range, as well as Sony’s flagship Xperia X3, it is a good looking and surprisingly affordable handset. So the Kazam Tornado 348 may yet make its mark.
