Samsung Galaxy S II Is Not The Slimmest Phone In The World Not In UK At Least

So you think Samsung Galaxy S II is the thinnest phone in the world? Well you’re wrong then, because it’s not the thinnest phone, not in U.K at least. A report published by U.K’s advertisement authority cites that iPhone 4 is the thinnest phone in the world not Samsung Galaxy SII.

The advertisement authority also blocked Samsung from promoting Galaxy SII as the thinnest smartphone in the world. They have their valid reasons for that, according to the report Apple’s iPhone 4 measures 9.3mm thick from top to bottom. On the other hand Samsung Galaxy S II is 8.71mm thick from and  at the bottom it’s 9.91mm thick. This fat area contains some important WiFi, Bluetooth, and GSM antenna circuitry and it also provides a little grip to the phone.

According to TechCrunch:

The ASA ruled that since the iPhone’s thickest point is thinner than the Galaxy S II’s thickest, Apple has the right to continue claiming the title. Samsung likely isn’t too pleased — save for a single thick bit, their GSII is mostly thinner, and Apple gets to maintain their positioning (in the UK at least) as purveyors of slim, sleek design.

Looks like U.K’s advertisement authority just snatched a key feature from Samsung’s Galaxy SII. They clearly mentioned that Samsung is not allowed to market Galaxy SII as “Thinnest smartphone in the world“. Samsung, however, can still market Galaxy S II as the “slimmest smartphone” in the world tag line when advertising in UK. Samsung Galaxy SII really is thinnest smartphone in the world in fact it’s the thinnest dual core smartphone in the world.

Samsung Galaxy S II is the best selling mobile device in Samsung Galaxy smartphone series. Samsung Galaxy S II is powered with a Dual-core 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor and 4.3″ Super AMOLED display. Samsung GS2 sports an 8megapixel high res camera for taking pictures and recording HD videos.  This phone no doubt is the best Android powered phone out in market.

If iPhone 4 has competition in market, it’s Samsung Galaxy SII but it’s not available for US customers right now. Samsung is planning to launch Galaxy SII in USA in collaboration with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint this fall.

Are we looking at another possible lawsuit by Samsung over here ?
