Vivo X5 MAX – The World’s Thinnest Phone



/ 4 years ago

vivo x5 max

Vivo are set to release their world-first smartphone as has been confirmed thanks to leaked photos being posted by news networks around the globe.

Vivo’s chief marketing officer Lei Feng, recently broke the news on their new X5 MAX device, claiming a thickness of only 4.75 mm and still managing to utilize a 3.5 mm audio jack allowing for users to enjoy a Hi-Fi quality audio experience.

Apparently no compromise has been made in the name of being thin, as is often seen within weight-reducing car brands or people looking to loose a few Christmas kilograms. Vivo has claims their motherboard design accounts for only 1.7 mm of thickness within the device and the 4.75 mm total thickness also utilizes a metal framed design.

Some reports are claiming that this phone will be rated at 3.75 mm thick on release, unfortunately we have received very mixed results when trying to browse for an exact answer. Whichever answer is right, one thing is clear – this phone is going to be super slim either way. Currently Oppo hold the record with their R 5 phone, sitting pretty at 4.85 mm – it seems that relatively unknown Vivo is looking to take this up a notch, most likely as a marketing scheme (and rightfully so).

Unfortunately there is no announced release date or product pricing yet for this new piece of tech, but we will endeavor to report as the story develops.

    Yes very nice. If it’s waterproof as well and you run out of razor blades it’s not a problem. C’mon this is ridiculous now, how thin do you wanna go? I suspect battery life won’t be all that stellar as well.
