Mobile recycling could result in ownership of 'thinnest-ever smartphone'

The iPhone 4 is a particularly thin model

People who recycle a mobile phone may soon find they are in a position to get their hands on what is being dubbed the world's thinnest smartphone of all time.

Flora Graham, writing for CNET UK, explains the LG B is a model that is even slimmer than products like the iPhone 4, which is already known for its wafer-like design.

She notes there have been photographs of the upcoming release leaked online showing the new handset is just 9.3 mm wide in places.

News of the LG B comes just a day after reports surfaced of the world's first dual-core mobile, the LG Optimus 2X.

"There's no news as to whether the B will have a dual-core Tegra 2 processor like the Optimus 2X, or what version of Android it will use, but we expect Android 2.2 Froyo," states the reviewer.

The iPhone 4, with its slim look, has proved popular with consumers since its UK release in June.
