Step aside, Oppo R5. Vivo has just announced a super-thin smartphone that clocks in at just 4.75mm. The X5 Max is the latest handset to compete for the title of world's thinnest smartphone, and judging images and details shared by the manufacturer, it's clear to see just how thin the Max X5 is.
Other specifications of the X5 Mac include a 5.5" Super AMOLED display (1080p), two SIM slots (one for microSIM and the other for nanoSIM cards, which if not used can accommodate a microSD card), 1.7 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 and 1.0 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 64-bit CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. There's also a 13MP camera (Sony IMX214 sensor) at the rear, with a 5MP shooter on the front.
To top it all off, the X5 Max has a Yamaha YSS-205X chip coupled with Hi-Fi 2.0 support from the built-in speakers. While it certainly looks sleek, we're sure many tests will be preformed on these new devices to see how they fare being a daily driver - remember all that noise surrounding Bendgate?
Vivo expect to launch the X5 Max on December 22 for CNY 2,998 ($485). We put it to you. Is 4.75mm too thin for a smartphone?
