Last year we saw a competition between smartphone manufacturers to crown their devices as the World’s Slimmest Smartphone. Two smartphones which made to it list were Ascend P6 from Huawei which clocked in at a depth of 6.18mm which was very fiercely beaten by China’s BBK Electronics (also owns the Smartphone brand Oppo) smartphone manufacturer brand VIVO who launched the World’s Slimmest Smartphone back then VIVO X3 which had thickness of nearly 5.75mm.
But all this will be laid to dust after Chinese Smartphone Maker Gionee launches its own World’s Slimmest Smartphone Gionee Elife S5.5 where the 5.5 in the model name doesn’t depicts Screen Size as the Conventional Wisdom says but 5.5 in the model number depicts the thickness of the smartphone which is just 5.5mm (so using this phone will be nearly equivalent to holding a Dairy Milk Chocolate).
Not just that USP of the phone is thickness of 5.5mm and the World’s Slimmest Smartphone Crown, this device packs in lot of features. Gionee Elife S5.5 comes with a full-HD Super AMOLED Display and has a screen size of 5inches. The Phone comes with a 13 Megapixel Camera at the back and the front of the phone hosts a 5 Megapixel Camera. Under the hood Elife S5.5 comes with a powerful Octa-Core Processor running at a frequency of 1.7GHz but the chipset is yet to be specified but Internet Sleuth expect it to come with Mediatek’s MTK6592 Chipset which is featured in almost all Chinese phones coming with Octa-Core processor.

The other features of the phones are 2GB RAM with 16GB Internal Memory, We still have no reports if the phone might come with an expandable memory card slot. Gioness Elife S5.5 will come with Android JellyBean v4.2 which will be heavily skinned by Gionee’s Amiga OS 2.0. The other features are HSDPA, HSUPA, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP and support for A-GPS while the battery is 2300mAh and non-removable.
Within few weeks the World’s Slimmest Smartphone will be launched in China at CNY 2,299 (which is approximately ₹23,500). The phone will be launched in 40 other countries in the second quarter of 2014. We just hope no other phone takes the World’s Slimmest Smartphone Tag before the Gionee Elife S5.5 is launched.
