The Kyocera KY-O1L, as reported by The Verge, is about as far from a gaming phone as you can possibly get in this day and age. You will be able to take calls and browse the internet.

There are one too many phone makers that claim to have created insanely thin phones. Its 5.19 millimeters thick - barely thicker than the USB-C port at the bottom. At a size like that, the popular e-reader display won't even suffice as an ebook reader at all; but the low power requirements will help the comparably tiny 380mAh battery fuel it's borderline ancient specs. Then again, the Moto Z comes with a camera while the KY-O1L doesn't. However, the phone does support LTE connectivity and features a basic browser.

The device is now only available for release in Japan, and costs about R4 300, despite it having no camera and being unable to download apps, but that's arguably the price to pay living in a crime laden country for a phone that can basically be "invisible" in your possession.

The look of the KY-O1L is fresh and stands out from the competition.

Docomo's lightest and thinnest smartphone in the world has a footprint very similar to a credit card, and merely weights 47 grams with 5.3 mm thickness.

Despite the fact that the device is admittedly not the best device available on the market now in terms of smartphone specs, it refrains from OLED and LCD displays and offers monochrome e-paper screen display. There's no camera or app store and it has a 2.8 inch monochrome e-paper screen.
