Vivo X1 confirmed for 20th November countdown begins for the world’s thinnest phone

The Vivo X1, aka the world’s thinnest phone will be officially available for pre-order on the 14th November with phone leave the factory and arriving in people’s hands after the 20th! More details after the jump.

As some of our readers (Martin) had recently spotted, the Vivo homepage has turned in to a large timer counting down to the launch of the Vivo X1 but although the countdown ends on the 14th November customers won’t be able to buy the X1 until the 2oth when it officially launches.

Instead the countdown is counting the minutes down to one of my least favourite things in the world!! A pre-sale!!!!!

I don’t have details of how many phones Vivo will have available for the pre-sale or how they are going to handle it, but what I do know is that the world’s thinnest phone (6.55mm) will be in high demand for the next few weeks (months?) or will it?

Although the x1 will officially be the worlds thinnest dual-core Android phone and it will come with a healthy specification and a pair of quality headphones, I’m wondering if the high retail price might but customers off.

world's thinnest phone vivo x1

According to sources close to the Vivo X1 launch, the dual-core version of the phone (which uses an MT6577 CPU) could cost as much as 2500 Yuan ($400) where as the quad-core Vivo X3 might cost just 3000 Yuan or possibly slightly less ($480)!

  • Pre-order the Vivo X1 over on their website here.

Although the X1 is a great looking phone with a quality specification and decent headphones, I can think of other phones I would feel much happier spending $300 on!

What do you guys think?

    Thanks for posting that.
    I thought the VIVO X3 cost $399?

    Also do you know if it will support 4G LTE and wireless charging?

    And what about the Oppo Find 5, will it support 4G LTE? A lot of pages on the internet are reporting so.

    Oh look what I found here 🙁

      MediaTek-based phones barely support 3G, so forget LTE.

      As for the Find 5, unless Oppo is aiming the phone outside China, there’s no reason to offer LTE since the standard is only in trial phase in parts of China. Further, the first LTE service in China will likely be TD-LTE, i.e. not compatible with other LTE networks.
