World's new thinnest phone, Vivo X3, poses for a weird photoshoot, acts like a knife
We’ve already told you about the Vivo X3, the upcoming smartphone by Chinese company BBK that is expected to launch as the new world thinnest smartphone, but this time it appears in a hilarious photoshoot. In an attempt to show how the Vivo X3 is razor thin, BBK decided to put it in the role of a knife slicing... a cucumber, corn and eggplant!

The ‘sliced’ pieces with smiley faces drawn on them lie on the side and the Vivo X3 stands triumphantly erect. Because... who wouldn’t want to slice veggies with their new smartphone?

So how thin it really is? The Vivo X3 measures merely 5.6mm thick and it is expected to feature a 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core chip (likely of a MediaTek breed).

The Vivo X3 should make its official debut on August 22nd, and we’d happily vouch for the “knife-phone” name, what do you think?

When is this stupid trend going to end...

Leave phones between 7 and 10 mm thickness and give us impressive battery.

Why the heck do I want a phone that can potentially cut my fingers off

It's made in China after all. Everything is possible.
5000 mAH battery
8 MP Front camera
And now, 5.6mm thick.

exactly, all you have to do is to buy three phones to get all three of the above.

yes, how dare someone make a phone that you don't want. Everyone in the world should make only the things that appeal to you. Don't they realise how stupid they are for making something that you don't agree with? /sarcasm

I am not against choice or being unique... But its been a while that we are seeing a lot of thin devices take the attention, while there is little talk about other kind of phones and innovation being release, with focus on other features that truly enhance the experience... not just being able to put inside your pocket...

I was just speaking my mind, and a lot of people seem to agree... You can be as sarcastic as you want... And for all I care, you may as well go buy a Vivo X3...
/Hope you are happy with all that thinness enriching your life and making it a lot more useful. /sarcasm

Funny thing is. Im with you in wanting a thicker phone if it gives bigger battery. What I dont agree with is the arrogant attitude that all manufacturers should create devices to appeal to you, and if they dont then you insult them.

I don't think he was being arrogant in saying that manus should be all accounts focus on what matters more than just a few features which adds little. Not saying that some of these features and addons really are hepful but while they add features, battery life stays the same. It needs to really improve even more so.

And what manufacturer was I insulting, exactly. I was only calling stupid "the trend", does that make me arrogant?.
Dude you need to relax and not to take everything heartily. Also understand what is being said before making assumptions. No insult was made whatsoever to any manufacturer or people in particular.

How tiny is the sensor and optics used in the device? :/

Expect truly average looking photos.

I am sick of thin trends. All these thin phones do is making it difficult to pick up and easy to fall of from your hand.

And yet probably has a pretty more battery for the life of it. Thin is great when it makes sense not for the fun of it.

Continuing from prev. Post
H/P jack hole is 3.5 so smartphone an be 3.6mm thin or 3.7mm

But , but ,but .. there is another alternative, there is even 2.5mm headphone jack version ..
So if they could manage to make smartphones thin 2.6 or 2.7 they use 2.5mm jack hole and manufacturer will include jack adapter in box ... from 2.5mm to 3.5mm

Good n? ;-)
