One of the last phones to claim the title of ‘thinnest smartphone’ went to the Huawei Ascend P6 at 6.2mm. Gionee has other ideas, however, as it has come out with the Gionee Elife S5.5 which measures just 5.5mm thick.
Hardware for the Elife S5.5 includes a quad-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB RAM, a 5-inch display and a 2,300mAh battery.
The Elife S5.5 will be available in 3G and LTE versions, and while the 3G version is now available for pre-order in China for around $370 USD, the LTE version won’t be available till June. While Gionee is saying that it will be releasing the Elife S5.5 in 40 other countries, it is yet to specify exactly which 40 they are.
