It's not been a long time since the new record breaker smartphone by Vivo, in terms of thickness, has hit the online world. Obviously, it has not been announced as yet, but yes, it will be soon unveiled. The device in question is the Vivo X5 Max, which breaks the shortly owned record by Oppo R5 in thickness of the phone.
Oppo R5 measures 4.85 mm thin and the Vivo X5 Max will come with 4.75 mm, which is 0.10mm thinner than the former record holder. The news here is that, Vivo has, in fact, confirmed the existence of the thin phone, and earlier it was just listed on the certification site.
The company has posted a teaser image to let fans know that the handset will be announced in the near future - apparently in December, according to recent rumors. The teaser image doesn't really reveal much, only mentioning the device's name, and something about "thin heartstrings" in Chinese.
If you are already thinking about he specification of the phone, guess what, because of the previous leak, we have quite a details about it.
Thus, according to the previous leak, the Vivo X5 Max will sport a 5.5-inch display offering a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. IT will be powered by an 1.7 GHz octa-core processor that's likely made by MediaTek. The smartphone will also use 2 GB of RAM form multi-tasking purpose. It runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Other aspects of the phone include LTE connectivity, a 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 13 MP rear camera. The handset appears to be made out of metal - or at least that's what the photos that we've seen until now (included below) are suggesting. Dimensions of the phone are just 153.9 x 78 x 4.75mm.
However, what we are not aware of at the moment are the battery capacity used by the phone, internal and storage. Vivo usually launches its smartphones only in China, but this doesn't necessarily mean the X5 Max won't be available to order internationally. We'll let you know more when the smartphone is finally announced.
Since the rumors hint at December announcement, lets keep our fingers crossed for that, but no assurances at the moment about the international availability and announcement. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
