Leave it to a Chinese manufacturer to once again blow to smithereens the record for thinnest smartphone in the world. The Vivo X1, a Droid, features a super-slim 6.55mm body, which is just a hair (.1mm) thinner than the Oppo Finder, previously the world's record-breaker (and also manufacturerd in China)
The Android 4.1 / Jelly Bean device also features a customized interface that rips heavily from Apple's iOS, complete with a Siri-esque voice service and an iTunes-inspired music player. This is the kind of phone that would instantly be banned in the U.S.
Aside from its super-slim look and less-than-original UI, the phone features a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16BV of internal storage, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear shooter, a 2,000 mAh battery and 32GB in internal memory. In other words, this is a very capable device in a sleek body.
To complete the package, Vivo is also throwing in a Cirrus Logic CS4398 digital-analog converter plus a CS8422 sample-rate converter which should help with creating an immersive audio experience. They're also throwing in a pair of Beyerdynamic MMX 71 iE earphones, or you can buy a pair of Sennheisers instead.

And now another Chinese manufacturer, UMEOX, has stolen the limelight from Huawei's recent release of the Ascend P6 which was the world's thinnest smartphone for less than a week. The UMEOX X5 is 10% thinner again than the P6, at just 5.6 mm! How thin can smartphones go before they start flapping in the breeze!
