Vivo X5 Max smartphone is unbelievably thin at 4.75mm and quite large

Just last week, we told you that Chinese OEM Vivo is working on a smartphone that’s super thin at just 3.8mm. Well, it turns out that the phone which is called the X5 Max isn’t as slim as anticipated, but thin enough to earn it the title of the world’s thinnest.

This basically means that the Oppo R5’s dream of being the slimmest available has been shattered just as it stole the throne from the Gionee Elife S5.1 ahead of its launch. Well, it’ll be fun to see for how long the Vivo X5 Max is capable of holding the title before something even skinnier hits the market.

The handset in question hasn’t been made official, but the company has surely teased in on Weibo. The details we’ve got today come curtsey of China’s TENNA which means that the smartphone’s development is over and it is in the certification phase. GSMArena spotted the listing and points out that the 5X Max is 4.75mm thin, that’s just 0.11mm slimmer than the Oppo R5 which isn’t much.

But as we said in an earlier report, even the slightest drop in milliliters is a big achievement at this point. What we know so far about the smartphone is that it will carry a 5.5-inch display of 1080p resolution and be powered by an octa core processor.

More details on the Vivo X5 Max’s specs can be found below:

Seeing as the Vivo X5 Max has gained certification by TENNA, it could go official in China any day now. Just don’t expect to see it make a debut outside Asia.
