World's thinnest smartphone, BBK Vivo X3T, receives certification from China
At the end of July, we told you about the world's thinnest smartphone, the BBK Vivo X3. The phone has just received certification in China and will be known as the Vivo X3T with a thickness of 5.75mm. With that measurement, even the 6.18mm Huawei P6 looks like a fat slob and we won't even talk about the Oppo Finder which weighs in at 6.65mm thick.

The rest of the specs for the Vivo X3T include a 5 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD). Under the hood is a quad-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6589T processor with 1GB of RAM on board. The camera on back is 8MP while the front-facing snapper is 5MP. The phone is expected to launch on August 22nd for the world's largest carrier, China Mobile. Android 4.2 will be pre-installed out of the box.

The dimensions of the BBK Vivo X3T are 143.27mm x 71.03mm x 5.75mm. On the scale, the device weighs 150 grams. No pricing information was released. Considering the way we have seen the title of the world's thinnest smartphone pass from model to model, who knows how long the Vivo X3T will be wearing the crown.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Still don't get it why manufacturers race this thinnest smartphone war. I'd rather have a bigger battery.

Try CloudFone Thrill 430x if you are not concerned about the thickness. It has 4.3" screen and Polymer 4160mAh battery. Wow that's more than enough juice for heavy usage.

The Chinese (generally all Asians) are crazy for selfies - believe me I live there. I am just worried for the structural integrity of the phone. So thin it might get an flexible display after purchase :)

Crazy statistics for crazy users - whoever gets excited about having a paper thin phone should also understand that every cut in thickness also translates in a cut in battery size, therefore in battery life. WHY? Because one cannot stand a 8-10mm phone?
