Vivo takes Oppo’s worlds thinnest crown with the 4.75mm Vivo X5 Max

Vivo have taken a trip to TENAA with their new ultra thin phone, a device which will upset Oppo and will claim the world’s thinnest title as Vivo’s once more.

Vivo and Oppo might be under the same roof in many respects, but the too aren’t shy of tackling each other in the specs and design department. Just as Oppo amaze the world and launch the 4.85mm Oppo R5, Vivo waltz in with the 4.75mm Vivo X5 Max!

But although it is going to be the world’s thinnest phone the Vivo X5 Max will probably only be available in any number in China and a few Asian countries. However if you are looking to get your hands on one then these are the specs you can look forward too.

    The way the race for thinnest phone is proceeding, very soon we should have palper thin phones….perhaps gud for writing also !…of course why manufacturers go to ridiculous lengths to reduce thickness below 6mm is not understandable.

    Vivo just killed Oppo’s model. But otherwise im not too impressed and find the Gionee S5.1 far better. Main reason being this Vivo design (and copied by Oppo) is outdated now as they have been using that same for past 2 years. Gionee S5.1 while being slim also maintains a good screen size and not huge like these from Vivo and Oppo.

    Hi Andi, just wondered if you have heard anything about the xplay 3s replacement as it must be due soon as the 3s came out last December. That is the phone I really want to see!

    Slim but oh so wide with what I’d now call huge bezels. I’d rather have a few more mm in depth as long as they keep it under 70 mm wide.
    Anything wider than 70 mm is strictly a no no for my hands as I can’t operate it with one hand.

    Gionee Elife S5.1 still have the crown for thinnest smartphone.

    measurement must be count from thickest point of device, camera bulge disqualified device as thinnest device except the bump thinner than previously thinner device

    when the race to the thinnest reach an end, the trends will reverse…soon we will back to brick walkie-talkie size all over again…just like any all-thing-classics
