New smartphone breaks world's thinnest phone record

This new android smartphone beats the two slimmest phones at 4.7mm thickness.

Chinese smartphone makers have set a new record with the Vivo X5Max which is now the world's slimmest mobile phone.

The new Vivo X5Max is a 4.75mm-thick Android phone frame houses a vibrant 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen, a 1.7mm-thick logic board and a 5-megapixel f/2.4 front camera.

On the back, there's a 13-megapixel f/2.0 main camera with an inevitable bulge that goes beyond the phone's official thickness by almost 2mm. It also has a loudspeaker towards the bottom.

The Vivo X5Max is slimmer than the Gionee's 5.1mm Elife S5.1, and Oppo's 4.85mm R5.
