The Chinese manufacturer Gionee released a teaser for what appears to be the world’s slimmest smartphone. The yet to be revealed device is bound to be even thinner than the already ludicrously skinny Gionee Elife S5.5.
As far as the thinness of the mysterious newcomer is concerned, we reckon that it will come even closer to the magical 5mm barrier (Elife S5.5 is 5.55mm thin). Going below it appears far-fetched at the moment, as device too thin would have to make do with small battery and compromised handling ergonomics.
Most of these devices are manufactured in China or parts are made there or outsourced from there.
