Gionee shocked us when they released the 5.5mm Gionee Elife S5.5, which some thought was too thin for a smartphone. However, going by the latest news from around the block, it looks like the ‘thinness’ trend is here to stay.
Philips is far from the most talked about smartphone manufacturer here on GizChina, and the maker seems to have taken offence for the same. Which is perhaps why, it could release the Philips I908 smartphone with a thickness of less than 5.5mm!
Under the hood, the device is uncannily similar to the Gionee Elife S5.5 – a 5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, 2GB RAM, MediaTek MT6592 1.7GHz octa-core CPU, and a 13 mega-pixel camera, all of which feature on the slim Gionee phone as well.
We don’t know for sure how thin the device will be, or for that matter, when it will launch. Being the enthusiasts we are, we hope for a thinner phone to take technology forward; not necessarily because we love thin phones, but if the same stuff can be packed in a thinner profile, more can be fitted in a slightly thicker phone!
Let us know what you think about this war for thinnest phone in the world!
