This letter introduces a 15.5 × 56.5-mm2 planar slot antenna operated under surroundings of an unbroken metal rim in mobile handsets. The height of the slot antenna is shortened, and the bandwidth for low band is expanded to cover both GSM850 and GSM900. This antenna provides a solution for planar unbroken metal-rimmed handsets and can be operated in five wireless communication bands (i.e., GSM850, GSM900, DCS1800, PCS1900, and UMTS bands). Good performances on return loss, radiation pattern, efficiency, and gain are obtained over these five operating bands. Hand effect of this slot antenna is also studied by comparison to the conventional monopole antenna.
