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+.

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).
