The 4.75mm-thin Vivo X5 Max will have a 3.5mm audio jack
Expected to be officially announced in December, the Vivo X5 Max will become the world’s slimmest smartphone - at only 4.75 mm, the handset is a tad thinner than the Oppo R5 (which, at 4.85 mm, is currently the skinniest smartphone in the world).

With handsets becoming impossibly thin, manufacturers seem to be forced to make compromises and omit some features. For example, the Oppo R5 doesn’t have a standard 3.5 mm audio jack. Fortunately, Vivo has found a way to include a 3.5 mm jack in the body of its upcoming ultra-thin handset, as the image seen below is confirming.

That aside, the new Vivo smartphone offers pretty nice features, including a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, and an octa-core MediaTek processor. The X5 Max will run Android KitKat at launch, and it’s likely that Vivo will updated it to Lollipop at some point.

Vivo is a Chinese company, thus it will launch the X5 Max in China first - probably not long after announcing it. Interested in getting one?
