Vivo X5Max, arguably the world’s slimmest mobile device is all set to launch at an event in China on December 10. As we had mentioned, it would be launching in India very soon and indeed it is true. Vivo X5Max would be launched in India on December 15.
The biggest attraction of Vivo X5Max phablet is its 4.75 mm super slim body, which is even thinner than the recently announced OPPO R5, currently the world’s slimmest smartphone and also the Gionee Elife S5.1 which was recently launched in India. The world’s slimmest phablet got certified on TEENA last month as well. The device measures 153.9 x 78 x 4.75 mm and weighs only 146 grams.
According to the listing by TEENA, the Vivo X5Max will feature a 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD LCD display. The phablet will be powered by a 1.7 GHz Octa-core MediaTek processor along with 2 GB of RAM. The device will have 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 128 GB via microSD card. The phablet will run on Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and hopefully get updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop in the near future.
On the camera front, it is expected to have the same 13-megapixel rear camera with a LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video calling. The Vivo X5Max phablet will have dual SIM capabilities and also 4G TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA enabled. It will likely come with a metal back finish.
We do not have any information on the pricing yet and we will have an idea about it when it is launched in China on December 10. India has become the most attractive and growing country for smartphone manufacturers across the world and we are not complaining. The consumers would have plenty to choose from and would also get these devices at attractive prices.
