Vivo has just teased the most svelte smartphone we’ve ever seen. Seriously. This thing makes endurance runners second-guess that next donut.
The eastern smartphone maker’s mystery blower measures up at a nigh-on invisible 3.85mm thick, trumping its Chinese pal Oppo’s new R5.
It’s all very hush-hush right now – the only glimpse we’ve had of the device is a Weibo post showing it off.
While most probably won’t have heard of Vivo, it’s actually a fairly established manufacturer over in China. They were the even the first OEM to build a phone with a 1440p display.
Vivo’s new slim-line smartphone is largely an enigma at this point – we’ve no idea what the specs will be, what OS is will run, or even whether it will ever leave home soil.
Regardless of the specs, it’s still record-breaking in terms of thinness. The iPhone 6, for instance, sports a 7.1mm thick chassis. This means Vivo’s comes in at around half the depth of Apple’s fare.
It might not all be sunshine and rainbows for the dieted-down device however. It could be pretty tough to cram decent specs into a chassis so thin.
Vivo’s offering could surely suffer the same issue, trading a sound build for wowing aesthetics.
