NEW DELHI: Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has launched the X5Max, a smartphone that measures just 4.75mm in thickness in India at Rs 32,980. 

The phone claims to be the world's slimmest smartphone, taking over Oppo's recently launched R5 and Gionee's Elife S5.1. 

Vivo X5Max sports an aluminium frame and features a 5-inch full-HD (1080x1920p) Super AMOLED display. Powered by a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octal core chip (1.7GHz Cortex-A53 quad core + 1GHz Cortex-A53 quad core) and 2GB RAM, the phone has 16GB internal storage expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. 

It runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Vivo's custom skin, FuntouchOS running on top. In terms of connectivity, the dual-sim phone supports 3G, 4G (including TDD-LTE, Indian 4G bands), Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. 

Vivo X5Max features a 5MP f/2.4 front-facing camera and a 13MP rear camera. It comes with a 2,000mAh battery. Unlike the Oppo R5, the X5Max does feature a 3.5mm audio jack. 

The phone will be available in China starting December 22 at CNY 2,998 (roughly Rs 30,000). 
Earlier, Gionee, another Chinese mobile brand, had launched he Elife S5.1, its slimmest phone ever, in India at Rs 18,999. The phone measures just 5.1mm in thickness. 

Gionee's Elife S5.5 was considered the world's slimmest smartphone before the launch of Oppo R5, which measures just 4.85mm in thickness. Powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa core 64bit processor and 2GB RAM, the phone sports a 5.2-inch full-HD AMOLED display. It comes with 16GB internal storage. The Oppo R5 does not sport a 3.5mm headset port and uses a micro-USB adapter for audio output. The phone is expected to make its India debut later this month. 

Interestingly, both Oppo and Vivo brands are owned by BBK Electronics.
