Gionee Elife S5.5 Is Now The World's Slimmest Smartphone

Chinese smartphone maker Gionee has revealed their new smartphone Gionee Elife S5.5. This is considered to be world’s slimmest smartphone having thickness of just 5.5 mm. Gionee Elife S5.5 leaves vivo x3,Ascend P6 and Sony Xperia Z ultra behind in thickness section in which they are having 5.75mm, 6.16mm and 6.5 mm dimensions respectively. The company has shared that they have named the phone after its thickness and not the display as is the trend.

Gionee’s president William Lu believes that smartphones are not only consumer electronics products but also decorative artwork. So they designed world’s slimmest smartphone crafted with distinct metallic frame and Corning Gorilla glass. This phone consists of world’s thinnest AMOLED display and PCB with a 0.6mm and 0.4mm glass rear cover.

I'm sure it'd double as a knife.
So at a price if 23-24k , Elife is going to snap some share from other giants.
BTW, Amigo os?
