Samsung has revealed its thinnest smartphone to date.
The Galaxy A8 is 5.9mm (0.23in) thick, making it less than 85% the thickness of Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge.
Despite the slimness, engineers have still managed to fit in a 16 megapixel camera and a relatively high capacity battery that should give the phone a rather long battery life.
The Samsung will start on sale in China and Singapore. A spokeswoman told the BBC, "The Galaxy A8 will not be coming to the UK," a spokeswoman told the BBC.
One of the main challenges will be ensuring that the sleek, thin handset does not bend in the user's pocket.
Samsung has chosen a metal case to aid its rigidity, building on the engineering work it did for last year's original Galaxy Alpha.
The new machine features:
A fingerprint sensor
A 4G Chip
A 5.7inch 1080p high-definition screen
At a starting price of 3,199 yuan ( £330) it costs a tad more than Xiaomi's bestselling aluminium- framed similar-sized Mi Note, which is about 1mm thicker and 1,100 yuan ( £115) cheaper.
