Currently, Chinese smartphone maker Gionee's Elife S5.5 is the world's thinnest phone with 5.5mm thickness. Prior to that, it was the Huawei Ascend P6 which had occupied the crown then. Now it looks like Philips is trying to beat the thickness of the Elife S5.5.
The company has already started teasing the phone via image that shows a robotic hand, holding the phone which looks pretty thin, but it's not sure whether the phone will be thinner than 5.5mm or not.
The phone in question is the i908 from Philips, and it is said to be powered by a 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. It would sport a 5-inch full HD (1080p) display and a 13-megapixel camera. Apart from that there are hardly any specs that have been leaked so far.
The phone will not only challenge the 5.5mm thickness of the Gionee Elife S5.5 smartphone, but also its power as Philips is using the same octa-core processor. But it is not sure how thin it could be.
Moreover, Philips, which launched a range of Android smartphones in India back in May, is currently taking much interest in the Chinese market. Thus we are also not sure whether the device will make it to other markets or not.
