Upcoming new world thinnest phone, Vivo X3, surfaces in China
We have already seen the world’s new thinnest phone - the 5.6mm Vivo X3 has posed for a photoshoot before, but this time it appears at a real event where members of the press could hold it and take it for a spin. And share the images of course.

The razor sharp Vivo X3 is exactly 2mm thinner than the already very slim iPhone 5, and it beats the record set by the Huawei Ascend P6 earlier in the year.

The Vivo X3 is made by Chinese BBK, and it is expected to grace mostly Asian markets with its presence. The handset is rumored to come with a 5-inch 1080p display and a MediaTek quad-core chip. Chinese C Tech now also mentions the phone is not only razor slim, but a good performer with a well-implemented 'smart wake' function.

Who needs a phone this thin?

I was thinking the same thing. It is a feat of strength in the tech world I guess.

its so thin that if you put it in your back pocket and you go to sit forgetting its there it might snap in half...scary. Wonder how it does on drop tests???

Let's make the phone thicker so they can pack about 4000-6000mAh of battery. that's a phone I would pay big money to get :D

My thought exactly. I would say maybe half of people put a case on their phone so thickness doesn't seem to be something people are demanding. They want protection and large battery over being thin.
