Worlds thinnest 5.75mm Vivo X3 sales begin on 23rd August, full specifications and photos

The Vivo X3, also known as one of the few phones out there able to give you a paper cut will go on sale later this morning in China.

The Vivo X3 follows the same design basics and the X1 and the Xplay which have gone before it, only the X3 is a wafer thing, and we do mean wafer thin 5.75mm! That’s thinner than the Huawei Ascend P6 and not much thicker than the Umeox X5 (but the thickness gives you an LED flash and 3.5mm headphone jack).

So at 5.75mm the X3 manages to be the world’s thinnest and most useable Android smartphone, but it is also feature packed too. Like the X1 and Xplay the X3 has Cirrus Logic enhanced stereo sound, 1.5Ghz MT6589T quad-core processor, 5-inch display, dual-sim support and still manages to pack a 2000mAh battery.

Some Chinese tech sites have already received their review phones from Vivo, and we can expect verdicts on how good/bad it might be over the coming days.

For those Chinese customers who can’t wait to find out though they can order the X3 online from 10am this morning online for 2498 Yuan ($408)

    Andi…I’m a guy and I love you bro…no homo. You have opened up a world of inexpensive good quality phones to me that I never knew existed. I live in Taiwan and from my research these phones will get to me ASAP. I still haven’t decided as to which phone I want to buy yet but my best bet is the ZOPO C2 with my budget of less than USD 300. Can you suggest another phone I can consider?

    Verno…I’ve been following news and comments here in since one year now and I can tell you, the more time I spend checking specifications and making comparisons of phones, the more I get confused. Suggesting another phone you can consider, I think YOU must finalize your imagination on processor, screen size and resolution, RAM, camera, price, thickness, battery size, SD card slot, dual sim possibility and of course the extras and then you might get closer on just a list of yours. So, up to now, these phones come to MY mind to choose from:

    iocean X7 Elite
    Umi X2
    Jiayu G4
    Neo N003
    THL W11
    Vivo X3
    Oppo R819
    FEAE F2S

    (Xiaomi Mi2s is not on my list because it does not have an SD card slot and only supports a single SIM.)

    Some Meizu, Zopo and ZTE models could or rather should be on this list, I know.

    News like “UPDATE! Top 15 1080HD Android phones from China!”, “Top 10 2GB RAM Chinese Android Phones: Summer 2013”, “Top 10 Chinese Android phones measuring less than 5-inch” can help you or mess you up.

    But, as far as I am considering buying one of the phones mentioned above, other new models will show up immediately, namely, Jiayu S1 and S2, Jiayu G5, Xiaomi Mi3, Vivo X5, etc…

    Finally, if you are aware of the following 3-letter abbreviations, then the final decision is even far more difficult: NFC, OGS, SNS apps, OTA updates, MHL port, FLV, HDMI, IPS, OTG. Good luck!

      yes! reviews by Gizchina is a great help for choosing a phone from the sea of Chinese phones on the market.
      Getting the phone repaired can be problem for people buying from abroad.
      So the reliability of phone is important. It would help if there are long term reviews of a phone and comments about reliable manuafacturers from experienced users.

    Good battery. 🙂

    How come they managed to make it so thin? What did they do diferently to achieve that?

    It is actually a decent bit of kit,as usual,from Vivo. But they have never been ones to be affordable,too bad.
