Vivo X3L, World’s Thinnest 4G Smartphone, Launches In China


Remember a few weeks ago when we told you about Vivo’s upcoming X3L 4G and how it was set to be the world’s thinnest 4G phone? Remember how we said the phone would go on sale “soon” but didn’t have an exact date? Well, we know the date now, because the phone is available for sale already.

Yesterday, three outlets, including Vivo’s official website, started taking orders for the Vivo X3L 4G.

The Vivo X3L is a 4G update to the Vivo X3. It is 6.75mm thin and has similar specs as the X3, meaning it has 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 720p screen, and an 8MP F2.0 front facing camera. In addition to the 4G connectivity it has also gotten a slight upgrade in the CPU category, utilizing an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core CPU clocked at 1.7Ghz.

As Andi predicted back on the 11th, the Vivo X3L is on sale for 2498RMB ($401, €293) at Tmall, Suning Tesco, and Vivo’s official site.

In case you are wondering, the specific 4G bands supported by the Vivo X3L is TDD-LTE 1900MHz/2300MHz/2600MHz.

Is the potential for 4G speeds enough to get you interested in this slightly upgraded device?

    Huawei P7 is thinner at 6.5mm. I previously thought Vivo might beat Huawei on this knowing that Vivo kept the previous record of being thinnest (5.75mm) and was thinner than Huawei P6 (6.18mm). But as for now, Huawei P7 is thinner than Vivo 3XL.

      Functionality rather than thin ness should be criteria of distinction in mobile phones.

      I was going to say the same. P7 is (for now) the thinnest 4G.
