Mobiado announces Professional 105 ZAF

The thinnest luxury phone in the world

 

Yesterday, Mobiado announced a new model from their Professional series, named 105 ZAF. This is, as Mobiado claims, the thinnest luxury phone in the world. The phone’s dimension are 109.3 mm x 47.5mm x a modest 10,6. It weighs 162 grams, which is anything but modest, but since the front and back sides of this phone are manufactured from big pieces of sapphire crystal, it’s understandable. After all, we’re not talking about a standard phone model that you can find in any shop.

Just as the Professional CAMO model showcased some ten days ago, the case is built from light but extremely strong aluminum used in the airplane industry. The surface is carefully polished and put through anode oxidation in order to get a ceramic surface that’s extremely sturdy. This combination of sapphire, anodized aluminum and carefully polished stainless steel give this phone a unique luxury look. We must admit that we’re impressed.

As for the specifications, they’re somewhat more modest. The phone packs a 2 inch QVGA display capable of displaying 16,7 million colors, 2 megapixel digital camera with maximum resolution of 1600x1200 and video resolution of 176x144. It uses a Series 40 user interface of fifth generation, and the active Standby mode enables access to the most important apps right from the Standby screen. It also has Bluetooth 1,2+EDR and MicroUSB ports.

Of course, it also has a media player supporting AAC, eAAC+ and MP3 audio, as well as H.263, MPEG4 and 3GPP video formats. This particular model also supports streaming in 3GPP and H.263 formats.

The phone packs 1GB of internal memory, and 920MB is available for use. Working frequencies are WCDMA 850/2100 and GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900.

The price of this baby is still unknown, but given the build quality - don’t expect it to be cheap.
