As the Vivo X3 claims the tittle of the world’s thinnest smartphone, we take a look at its specs – it is only 5.75mm thick – which is really thin. Furthermore, the device has 5-inch 720p IPS display, 1.5GHz quad core ARM A7 processor, 8Mp rear camera, 5MP front facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory and 2,000mAh battery. It is expected to come with preinstalled Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, with support for updates and upgrades of Android. For now, this smartphone is only available in China, but it is expected to be launched for other markets very soon.
The price is what really makes this smartphone interesting to all users in the global market – at this moment price is set at 2498 Chinese Yuan, which is $408. Basically, Vivo X3 is a high-end device, by specifications and features, but with a price of mid-range smartphone.
When it comes to thickness, all the smartphone manufacturers are trying to make their devices as thinner as possible. Until now, other devices that have been thinner than other smartphones have always seemed to lack something important – sometimes the processor wasn’t strong enough, no microSD card slot, or the batteries didn’t have enough power to support the hardware for at least a day.
