Now official, the Coolpad lvvi K1 Mini becomes the world's thinnest smartphone at 4.7mm
It looks like a new handset will take the crown as the world's thinnest smartphone. At 4.7mm thin, the Coolpad Ivvi K1 Mini is slimmer than the previous holder of the title, the 4.8mm Vivo X5 Max. Last month, we told you that Coolpad's phone was on the way, and on Tuesday the device was actually unveiled, priced at the equivalent of $200. Available only in white for the moment, more color options are on the way.

While both the Vivo X5 Max and the Oppo R5 (4.85mm thick) are mid to high-end models, the Coolpad handset is low to mid-range. It carries a 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. Under the hood is a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB of RAM on board and 8GB of native storage inside. An 8MP camera is on back while a 5MP "selfie" shooter adorns the front of the phone. The 1800mAh battery is shoe horned into the handset, which does offer support for 4G LTE connectivity.

According to Coolpad, the camera will include features for the camera including "beauty shots," and algorithms are employed to make sure that your pictures come out looking great. The svelte smartphone also has a remote control capability that allows you to control home appliances like your washing machine, television and A/C.

I wonder what focus groups they interview. These things are getting thinner and thinner, making them weaker and weaker. They should make them thicker and slap a bigger battery in the phone. The first manufacturer which will be able to produce a high end phone with 4 days of battery life, I will buy that phone immediately.

Blackberry Z30 or a Passport. Maybe not high end specs on the Z30 but you get a nice thick phone with 8 hours OST or 3 days with light use. Also I know people who are charging their iPhone 6s every 3 days or so. I have to say without extensive modding Android battery life sucks.

LMAO you guys can't even be bothered to verify what you publish even when using terrible sources. The phone is NOT 4.7 mm thin, it's that thin at the edge but it has a curved back.http://www.sinaimg.cn/dy/slidenews/5_t500/201​5_06/22298_1173579_642849.jpg And while at it ,the screen is 540p not 720p.

Thin on battery life too? It's a beauty though.

It's kind of funny that it has a 4.7 inch 720p screen, 8 megapixel camera, thin, 64 bit quad core processor, 1800mh battery and its called low-midrange phone while the iPhone has similar specs. Not saying specs mean everything. It's just funny to think about.

You clearly don't understand the A8 processor.

You still don't understand the A8 processor; Apple uses large wide and slow CPU cores on the 20nm process with possibly a higher number of transistors than everyone else and their GPU are clocked relatively high. Crudely speaking, it's an SD805 but with less thermal throttling.

Gosh this infatuation with thin is dumb. Thin is not a spec. We don't need thin, we need features. I don't want a phone that will bend without me trying too actually bend it. Thin means less features poor battery-powered and more bad things like being more fragile.

4.7mm + 1800mAh batt = do they expect an award for this?
