World’s thinnest reclaimed: 5.6mm Umeox X5 coming by end of year

Huawei’s Ascend P6 astounded us with its design last week when we saw the Chinese smartphones can not only be cheap, but also well made. The Ascend P6, though, won’t be able to hold on to its title of the world’s thinnest smartphone for long as the Umeox X5 emerges to claim it with its razor thin 5.6mm body.

That’s a whole 0.5mm slimmer than the P6. The Umeox X5 is still months away from an official launch, though. The device is set to arrive by the end of the year and it features a 5.3-inch display, an 8-megapixel rear camera and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

The biggest question that should bother your mind about the X5 is the size of its battery. Could the unknown Chinese phone maker Umeox have thinned down a large enough juicer in its handset? There are no details yet, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as they surface.

I love a thin phone, but I love one that goes through the day with heavy usage. Gimme 9mm with 3000mAh+.

We'll have to be careful about cutting ourselves with our phones in 2 years at this rate.

At least it shuts up Huawei's CEO, who bragged about the Ascend P6 being the thinnest. I dont like his ego attitude making him running his mouth on "being open to" buying Nokia and then telling the world they will be number 3 (because he expect those declining to never surge again).

i dont like this thin phones, feel like its too fragile on my jeans. 8-10mm is enough for best ergonomics.

This phone has innovative feature: It doesn't have a battery. instead it has a small solar panel that just allows you to turn on the phone, check out the home screens and then it turns off.

Thinner is better.
However it has to have a stronger frame (no bending or cracking) and the battery life as well. Lets not forget battery life can be improved through optimisation and not just size.

If it's the phone from the picture, It doesn't have 5.3' display, since it's over an iPhone and the difference is not noticeable. Maybe 3.5' ?

So the phones are getting thinner and larger.
In the past, phones were thicker and smaller.
God damn we need big battery!!
