A China based electronics company Vivo revealed that its Vivo X1 is the world’s thinnest smartphone. Previously, Oppo had this title for its Finder 3 android phone now this title goes to Vivo X1. It measures 6.55mm in thickness making it a fraction (0.1mm) thinner than Oppo had 6.65mm and a full 1.05mmm, or just under 14 percent thinner than the 7.6mm thick iPhone 5.
The Vivo X1 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is powered by dual-core system-on-chip, the Mediatek MT6577, which is based on the Cortex-A9 with a PowerVR SGX540 GPU and a 1GHz clockspeed. The smartphone also features a 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and 8-megapixel camera.
The phone comes with a pair of Beyerdynamic DTX71IE earbuds, and a quad-core variant of the X1 will be available in February next year. Vivo has announced that they will launch the Vivo X1 in November in dual-core quise which will feature a MT6577 CPU, while the quad core version will go on sale in February.
The company does not reveal anything regarding its availability in other territories but it will be available in Chinese retailers like Aliexpress, Dealextreme, Focalprice. Being a thinnest phone in the world, it costs around 2,600 yuan (which is actually slightly less than the year old Oppo Finder 3).
The ZTE reports that an Android smartphone will be works better even thinner at 6.22mm, so we can say that the Vivo X1 will probably not remain thinnest smartphone for long. So, we can expect still other thinnest smartphone in the world!!!
