Intel CEO, Brian Krzanich, along with Michael Dell made a surprise announcement at Intel Developer Forum this morning with the unveiling of what is claimed to be the world's thinnest tablet, the Dell Venue 8 7000.

The upcoming tablet measures only 6mm in thickness and will come equipped with an Intel Atom Z3500 processor. It is also the first Android tablet to feature Intel's RealSense 3D camera that enhances photography by creating a high-definition depth map to enable measurement of objects and refocus of images (similar effect as Lytro's light field digital camera). Intel expects RealSense to change how tablets are used while opening up a new creative horizon for developers to come up with apps that gives consumers new ways to engage with their photos.

The Dell Venue 8 7000 also features an edge-to-edge 8.4-inch OLED screen with 2K (2560x1440) resolution.
