Slim, 7.7mm Medias N-04C phone due in US?

The NEC N-04C Android smartphone that's offered by NTT DoCoMo in Japan may be coming to the US, Japanese daily business paper Nikkei reported. The handset, touted as the world's thinnest at 7.7mm, was announced to be coming to the US last year and may be offered by Verizon and some other carriers. It will be made by NEC Casio Mobile Communications, which was formed back in 2009.

The handset has a mass of just 105 grams and is one of the lighter smartphones in the world as a result. In Japanese spec, it's a strictly mid-range handset with an 800MHz processor, a four-inch, 480x854 LCD, Android 2.3, and a 5.1-megapixel camera. A microSDHC memory card slot, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are inside as as well. The US version may have detail differences, though what they are isn't known at this point. However, the digital TV tuner, mobile wallet and infrared port aren't likely to come over.

In Japan, the handset was replaced by the N-06C this summer that's 7.9mm thick and waterproof. [via TechCrunch]
