There’s a new contender for world’s thinnest smartphone. The Coolpad IVVI K1 is a Chinese phone that measures just 4.7mm (0.185 inches) thick.
That makes the phone a tiny bit thinner than another Chinese handset, the 4.75mm Vivo X5 Max which launched a few months ago.
Coolpad’s new phone has a 4.7 inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, an 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera. It supports 4G LTE.
While the phone might be one of the world’s thinnest, it’s not exactly a premium device. It’s expected to sell for a little over $200 and it has some entry-level specs to match that price, including just 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, although there is a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of removable storage.
The phone also has a relatively small 1800mAh battery: it’s not like there was a lot of room in the case for a bigger battery.
