Chinese Manufacturer Unveils Thinnest Smartphone in the World (Again)

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.

  • This sounds too thin (like you'd immediately need a .2 millimeter thick case just to protect it), design looks great - but it sure borrows liberally from Apple (too liberally - lol) ....

    Thin, thinner, thinnest. I'm sick of all this smartphone anorexia. I want a phone that feels solid.


  • would want to get hands on this one... at least to test it

    Short sighted morons, I would put a NON MODIFIED Android with zero additions to sell it as fastest with fastest updates.
    Not like I am fan of Apple but I wouldn't do business with any company blatantly stealing design.
