Coolpad’s next IVVI could become the world’s thinnest phone


coolpad ivvi

Coolpad might be taking on the world’s thinnest title with a new phone from their IVVI sub brand.

Coolpad released the IVVI brand as their answer to the growing popularity for phones which look good but might not necessarily have the highest hardware specifications.

We’ve seen a growing trend for these types of device over the months and have seen Oppo and Vivo product phones that focus on design and body thickness over pure horsepower.

The next IVVI phone might be the next to follow! An image released today shows the rear of the next IVVI phone along with the questions:

4.7mm? 4.7 inch?

The figures obviously refer to the thickness of the body and the size of the display. If IVVI did release a 4.7-inch phone it would be one of the few small screen phones built to a higher quality available today. If they also make it 4.7mm thick it will also become the thinnest phone in the world!

Personally we thick Coolpad plan to do both with the IVVI with a 4.7-inch screen and 4.7mm body, but this has us worry just how large a battery could possibly fit inside a device so small!

    I truly believe that there’s a fair share of the market that’s interested in a smartphone with decent specs in a form factor of <5" screen size.

    Come to think of it, is there any news regarding the heavily rumored JiaYu S4?

      I guess it will be launched as soon as the S3 is available internationally. Jiayu have always taken their time after the first leaked images. Expect it to appear somewhere in between April and July.

    It’s unfortunate that thin designs are not reused in other models.
    Reducing the volume of the device has many usages, not just for thin.
    They could make versions with a big battery, a big battery and a projector, a normal battery and solar on the back , a version with big speakers on the back, a rugged version and so on.

    IVVI could be IV – VI which in Roman numbers is 4-6.
    So, 4.6mm or 4.6″. My guess goes for 4.6mm

      I don’t think the Chinese are that clever. It’s most likely just a coincidence.

      I don’t really think they’re going to that. It’s too clever.

    I think they need to read up on their roman numerals… IVVI would be 4.6 if anything, if it was 4.7 it would be IVVII

      IVVI is the sub brand name, they already have a few phones launched

    They could make it a 4.7 inch phone with a thickness of 4.7mm by having a non removable battery of about 25-2600 mah, a single nano sim card slot, Hotknot since that uses the screen, a headphone jack since you can see it in the picture, probably a 1080p or 2k screen based on what IVVI’s other phones have, and 4G connectivity.

    That is just too thin. I picked up the Gionee 5.1 the other day and it felt like it was going to fall through my fingertips like a piece of tissue paper. I loved how it looked but it just wasn’t very practical. 5.5 is the absolute lowest I want on a phone.
