Designer Imran Sheikh has revealed to us another one of his original ideas, the TPM Helium, a very original Android 4.0 handset, that adopts a longer and less wide format. You can see below a size comparison with famous phones such as the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S III. The Helium is about the same length as the S III, but 4 times less wide.

It’s a very light and slim Android concept phone, with great music features and even business ones. TPM Helium measures 6.8mm in thickness, features a 200 x 400 very bright super resistive multitouch display and an original keypad design with “grip angle text”. Android ICS runs on it in an optimized version and specs include an 800 MHz Cortex A9 processor, 512MB of RAM, full Office document support and a microSD card slot. There’s also an audio jack, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC, GPS, FM radio with RDS, accelerometer, proximity sensor and compass.

The TPM Helium even does TV out via headphone resonance cable and has a primary 5 megapixel camera at the back with LED flash and 720p video capture. Upfront there’s a 2 megapixel camera, most likely for videocalls. Under the hood there’s a 1.450 mAh battery, that provides 8 hours and 20 minutes of 2G talk time. The device comes with original quad headphones and provides 28 hours of MP3 playback. This is more of a fashion statement than a phone. What do you say?
