Gionee Elife S5.1 recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's thinnest smartphone

Gionee Elife S5.1 recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's thinnest smartphone
Released in China earlier this month, the Gionee Elife S5.1 was presented by its maker as the world’s slimmest smartphone - being only 5.1mm (0.2 inches) thin. Now, according to Gionee, the handset is being recognized by the Guinness World Records as the thinnest smartphone ever made. We assume it’s going to take a while before a thinner handset shows up.

Ultra thinness aside, the Gionee Elife S5.1 appears to be a decent mid-range smartphone. Its features include a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 5 MP wide-angle front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory (non-expandable), and a 2100 mAh battery. The handset runs Android 4.3 with Gionee’s Amigo 2.0 UI, and is currently available to buy only in China. It costs around $325, and is offered in black, white, pink, and mint green.

As you may know, the Elife S5.1 isn’t Gionee’s first ultra-thin smartphone. The company also has the Elife S5.5, which is 5.5mm thin, and can be purchased in lots of markets across Asia.
