Micromax shows world’s slimmest smartphone

The company Micromax, which designs and manufactures smartphones, has demonstrated the new Canvas Sliver 5 smartphone. The company claims the new Canvas Sliver 5 is the world’s slimmest smartphone thanks to chassis thickness of just 5.1 mm. The chassis of the Canvas Sliver 5 also does not have any bumps and this is one of the secrets why the smartphone is so thin. Users of the Vivo X5 Max may disagree since the device is officially 4.75 mm thick but Micromax claims this is not the case since the camera module on the Vivo X5 Max protrudes.

The new Canvas Sliver 5 comes with a 4.8-inch AMOLED display at 720p resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), protected by Gorilla Glass 3 technology. The device also has a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory and a 2000 mAh battery. There are two cameras as well – a single 8 MP Sony IMX219 sits in the back and there’s a 5 MP shooter up front as well. All this sits in a chassis that weighs just 97 grams.

The Canvas Sliver 5 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and costs INR 17999, which is about USD 286.
