Seems like we’re always hearing about the world’s thinnest Smartphone, but the Vivo X5 Max at 3.98mm does make us think that phones can’t possibly get any thinner.
The Vivo X5 Max is measures just 0.15in (3.98mm) at its thinnest point and 0.18in (4.75mm) at its chubbiest. It’s 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 at 1.7GHz, it’s an Octa-Core prossesor with 2GB of RAM and 16Gb of storage that is expandable. We’re especially impressed by this since it’s so thin it can’t have been easy to make room for a MicroSD card slot.
So How did they make it so thin? Vivo designed a special motherboard that is only 1.7mm thick, they also used a very thin screen assembly measuring just 1.36mm. Vivo claims that they’ve used the “World’s thinnest speaker box” and it is thin at 2.45mm.
What we do have to make a note of here is that they phone isn’t uniform in thinness, it is 3.98mm at its thinnest point and 4.75mm at its thickest.This added height has allowed them to offer a dual SIM and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Other specification include a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front cam and that crazy thin speaker we talked about earlier is, while an Yamaha YSS-205X chip handles sound. The Vivo X5 Max runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat topped off with Funtouch OS 2.0.
