Xun Chi 138 the worlds smallest phoneby Dhiram Shah
We have seen the race for the slimmest phone with entrants from Motorola, Samsung and NEC though the war still wages on, here we have the world’s smallest phone and surely it is going to be there for quite some time. The Xun Chi 138 is a GSM with bar form factor it measures only 67 mm (2.64 inches) in length a bit longer than the AA battery and weighs only 55 grams. If you thought this was impressive I am sure you will be blown away when you check out what this baby packs inside. As with the tiny size it is impossible for a keypad so the Xun Chi 138 has touchscreen with handwriting recognition and support for 260k colors. The manufacturer has still found space to squeeze in a 1.3 Megapixel camera (actually VGA but interpolated to 1.3 Megapixel), USB port, WAP, GPRS, MP3 player and 138 MB of onboard memory. Maybe the next model will have a Mini SD card slot and Bluetooth.
The Xun Chi 138 is more like a chic phone as it comes in pink color. The stylus neatly fits at the back of the phone. Dont expect the phone to hit the West anytime soon as the Xun Chi 138 supports only Chinese character recognition for now.
I own 2 of these, got them for about 5500 Bath in Bangkok.
They are simply amazing, worth every penny, refreshing change from an I-mate K Jam!!
Let me know if you want to know anything about the phone!
That looks amazingly slim and cute.I wanna know more details about it.
I want to know about price
Hi there guys,
Well it costs about $150, and for what it is, its totally worth it.
It comes in Candy Blue and Light Grey (the 2 colours I have it in).
Its great for taking pictures and video endlessly with 128 MB Built in!
The headphones for handsfree use are not that great but clear and the MP3 player works very well!
It can record conversations you have during a phone call or otherwise!
The games are limited, and using the little screen and pen takes a while to get used to, but is easy after repeated use (i hardly sms anyway!)
It recognises handwriting very well.
It doubles as a usb stick and a web cam!
The web cam is very very good and clear and using it as a usb stick is handy.
With frequent use the phone battery lasts about 1 and half days, otherwise it lasts about 2-3 days.
Charging is quick and a spare battery is provided in case you take it with you for long periods without being able to charge your phone again.
I have it with a 1 one year warranty and gaurentee from the shop i Bought it from!
Want to know anything else, just let me know.

Here’s a place that sells it, I bought a similar phone from them that I’m quite happy with:
BUT there is a catch, these Chinese phones WILL NOT WORK in the USA, Canada and other places that use different GSM frequencies than are used in Europe, Asia, Australia and much of the rest of the world. The site has a list of countries where it works. Cheers!
it has chinese and english languages on it.
it probably won’t ever be available in the U.S. unfortunately.
can we puchase this phone in england
Can someoneget one and place up for bid on ebay as i really want one.
can i know whats Xun Chi 138 price
I have one of these now – I got it from a German compnay called MG&C (I think). They were super helpful. Go watch their video review on their site or look it up on youtube.
You have to use the hands free kit to make calls, and it only works with pcs if you want to use it as a flash drive, but there is loads of space for tunes and videos, which it comes with preloaded (some of them are very weird. Well. Chinese I guess). Its an awesome toy and loads of fun, but not hugely practical and only dual band. I still love it ^-^
hi all, this phone looks awesome – but how the heck can i get one down under in australia??? if anyone has any ideas pls let me know!
Johno – The site that Adam mentioned above, calibryze.com, will ship it worldwide…to Australia, UK, Germany, wherever. I bought one, it really is adorable & fun!
so you cannot use it as a reular phone – one must use the handsfree kit?!
Does anyone know how much it is and where i can get one?
Venetia, it costs $235 at:
I don’t know anywhere else that has it in stock currently.
Alex, no need to use the handsfree if you don’t want, it has a mic on the bottom! (And quite a loud speaker too)
I saw on for auction on ebay…

On ebay they are offered to have GPS (not GPRS) as well. Someone kindly can confirm this? Thank you very much in advance, Joe
I need to get one ,can you let me know what would be the cost to UAE (United arab emirates )
you can buy this phone for £45 brand new on ebay,it costs an additional 35 quid for shipping from the dealer in china,it is worth every penny and a bargain.i bought one and its fantastic.make sure when you ebay search for it,that you dont opt for unlocked sim,it limits the search results,and they are unlocked anyway…they are brand new not used ..
Joe, that’s a typo, the phone has GPRS *not* GPS!
Ayman, if you can’t get it shipped to UAE from any Ebay sellers, try here:
Not as cheap as ebay but you get a warranty & return policy, and fast shipping.
