Samsung Ultra Editon 5 9

Samsung's mobile division today added the Ultra Edition 5.9 to its cellphone line. The bar-shaped handset is the world's new thinnest phone, according to its creator: named after its thickness, the latest Ultra is only 5.9mm (0.23 inches) from front to back, making it thinner still than the 0.26-inch and music-only iPod nano. The size does not come at the cost of features, Samsung says. A 3.2-megapixel camera is built in, as is 80MB of internal storage; Bluetooth and playback for music and video round out the phone's features. The Ultra 5.9 is based on a tri-band GSM radio and is set to debut in Europe as of March.

Samsung's thinnest phone for North America is currently the T-Mobile Trace, whose depth reaches a third of an inch. Photos of the Ultra 5.9 can be found after the jump. [via Cellularmania]
