World’s thinnest smartphone to debut on December 10

The world of smartphones will get a new champion on December 10 but this time it will not be about more cores, more memory or more MHz. The newcomer will beat the opposition with thinness at least until a thinner smartphone shows up.

The new thinnest smartphone will be made by Vivo, a Chinese company, and will be called X5 Max. The device will sport a chassis that is just 4.75 mm thick, which makes it 0.1 mm thinner than the current thinnest smartphone, the Oppo R5, which sits at 4.85 mm. The X5 Max will measure 153.9 x 78 x 4.75 mm and will weigh 146 grams.

The Vivo X5 Max will house an 8-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 processor at 1.7 GHz and will have a large 5.5-inch sensor display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). The rest of the specs include 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a high quality Hi-Fi sound system, one front 5 MP camera and another rear at 13 MP, LTE and a 3.5mm audio jack. Furthermore the smartphone will support two SIM cards and an external memory card (up to 128 GB). There is one peculiarity, though – if you use a memory card then you can use a single SIM card only; if the memory card slot is empty, you can use two SIM cards.

Once released the Vivo X5 Max will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The price of the upcoming device is unknown but this might not matter in the long run since Vivo might decide to sell the device in China only.
