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.
