This is the world’s smallest and slimmest phone,* the size of a business card. High-quality VoLTE calls can be made with this device alone. Use of e-paper for the display saves power and facilitates miniaturization. Also, by using colors that take advantage of the e-paper’s characteristics, the designers have created a unified look and feel that makes the display characters appear to float. Thanks to the compact size, usage possibilities have been further expanded for early adopters and business users. This is an original NTT DOCOMO model that brings innovation with a simple yet essential design. *Checked by the manufacturer.
