Seriously, there is a competition going on among the manufacturers to make their smartphones thinner. This time, a new Android smartphone is launched with the official ‘world’s thinnest smartphone’ tag, which is the Vivo X5 Max. With just the thickness of 4.8 mm, it surpasses all the records made by the previous thin smartphones.
The Vivo X5 Max does not stand so high in case of the specs though. It features a 5.5-inch Full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) Super AMOLED capacitive display, which has a pixel density of 401 ppi. The handset is obviously sleek, with dimensions 153.9 x 78 x 4.8 mm. The phone will have 16 GB of internal memory, and will have the expandable storage option via microSD card upto 128 GB. It has 2 GB RAM, and for the processing power, there will be a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset compiled with a Quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU, and Adreno 405 GPU for gaming and graphics. For the photography and videography options, this smartphone will have a 13 MP primary camera with autofocus and LED Flash which can capture videos upto 1080p @ 30 fps, and a 5 MP secondary camera for video calls and selfies. The juice will be provided by a Non-removable Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery. For the connectivity options, there will be LTE support, microUSB v2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and NFC. The phone will run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system with Funtouch OS 2.0 over it, and we can’t say anything about the future updates. The phone will be available only in White color.
While rest of the specs of the handset seem to be good, the battery is the worst part. The main cause for this is the thinness of the phone, as they will have to either make big bezels or to decrease the battery size, for that dimension. We will have to check it ourselves how it does though, in case of endurance rating. The Vivo X5 Max will go on sale on December 22 starting from China, priced at $486.
