At just 4.75mm thick, the Vivo X5 Max makes the majority of smartphones look like they need to go on diets. It even earned the title of thinnest smartphone in the world. Seeing how temporary it’s been for smartphones as of late to hold that title, it’s only a matter of time until a newcomer arrives and takes it away. Enter Ivvi, which plans to do just that with its upcoming smartphone, as reported by GizmoChina.
If you’re unfamiliar with Ivvi, we’re not exactly surprised: Ivvi is a sub-brand of popular Chinese brand Coolpad, which doesn’t exactly have any sort of foothold to speak of in the West. Even so, Ivvi is ready to make a splash with its upcoming smartphone, which is reported to be 4.7mm thick, a hair slimmer than the Vivo X5 Max. Every little bit counts, though, and Ivvi is making sure of that.
Unfortunately, specific details on Ivvi’s upcoming smartphone is extremely scarce, save for the fact that it will have a 4.7-inch display, a speaker grill on the bottom of the back, and a protruding camera with LED flash. The phone should also sport a plastic back and rather generic look, based on the teaser picture. In contrast, the Vivo X5 Max is made of metal. We”ll undoubtedly hear more about Ivvi’s handset in the near future as companies continue to claim the crown for World’s Thinnest Smartphone.
