Currently, the thinnest smartphone made by HTC is the One E9+, which measures 156.5 x 76.5 x 7.54 mm. It seems, however, that the One E9+ will soon lose this title, as a thinner HTC-made smartphone has made an appearance on TENAA (China’s equivalent of the US FCC).
The images seen above show the unannounced HTC WF5w. It measures 158.7 x 79.7 x 7.49 mm and weighs in at 152 g. This would make the smartphone 0.05 mm thinner than the One E9+. Since the Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (TENAA) has approved the WF5w, expect the smartphone to make its debut in China soon.
Aside from the images and measurements of the HTC WF5w, TENAA has also leaked the smartphone’s specs. According to the listing, the device sports a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, dual-front-facing speakers, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 13-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (up 128 GB), an octa-core processor with each core clocked at 1.5 GHz, and 2 GB of RAM. It will run Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop) out of the box.
The HTC WF5w supports TD-LTE connectivity, suggesting that it is headed to China Mobile (the biggest network operator in China and in the world). This is also an indication that the smartphone will be a Chinese-exclusive, but it’s also possible that an international version of the device will be available in other markets.
Note that “WF5w” is less likely to be the device’s commercial name, and is likely to join HTC’s Desire series.
