Vivo X5Max – World’s thinnest smartphone impresses at 4.75 inches


Chinese smartphone manufacturer has made it its personal mission to test the boundaries of size by making the world’s thinnest smartphone, but is it too thin?

The Vivo X5Max which is running Android comes in at 4.75mm thin and still manages to cram a slew of impressive functionality into its tiny frame. It comes packing a 5.5 inch 1080p super AMOLED display, as well an impressive 13 megapixel snapper round back and equally as impressive front-facing 5 megapixel one round the front.


Following in the footsteps of Apple, the camera housing inevitably juts out beyond the phone’s skinny frame, the camera actually sticks out by a full 2mm which will make it pretty uneven on any flat surface and pretty odd feeling in your pocket.

Aesthetics aside, the X5Max has some pretty impressive internals too, as well as a high quality, vibrant display it also comes rocking a 64 bit octa- core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset, which is clocked at 1.7GHz and 1GHz respectively. There’s also 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage which is expandable up to 128GB via the microSD slot.

There’s no word as of yet when this will hit North American or European shores, but hopefully it won’t be too long as this looks like quite an impressive device we’d like to get our hands on.
