Umeox X5 to be the “world’s thinnest phone” at just 5.6mm

Over the past 12 months or so a new trend has surfaced from all those Chinese manufacturers. That new trend is to release the "world's thinnest smartphone" and we've seen the record get broke, then broke again, over and over the past few months. Today a new contenders real device has surfaced, instead of press images from earlier this month. The Umeox X5 will officially earn the title, for now.

World’s thinnest smartphone comes in at 5.6mm thanks to China

Lately there has been an ongoing trend to try and earn the title and crown of having the "world's thinnest smartphone." The folks from OPPO, Huawei, and many others have all joined in on the fun, but the record keeps getting beat every few months as technology advances. Today a Chinese company is looking to smash all the competition with a truly razor thin smartphone.

Huawei Ascend P6 takes the crown as ‘world’s thinnest’ smartphone

While having a thin smartphone surely is something many of us consider while making a purchase decision. Something decently thin with great battery life sounds a bit more reasonable. Not everyone feels the same way however, because Huawei is back, again, with what they're calling the world's thinnest smartphone. Their new Ascend P6 takes the cake.

“World’s Thinnest” Oppo Finder set for pre-order in China

Another month, another world's thinnest smartphone. The latest contender for the somewhat wobbly throne is the 6.65mm Oppo Finder, last seen in a preview image about a month ago. The phone is currently set for preorder on June 6th, but unfortunately it's only in China, where Oppo operates. Getting a Finder into the hands of the fashion-conscious outside of Asia will require a crafty importer.

Oppo shows off crazy thin 6.65mm smartphone

You can never be too rich or too thin, and it seems like Android manufacturers have taken the latter part of that saying to heart. Chinese phone maker Oppo released a teaser image of a 6.65mm-thin phone today, and if it comes to market any time soon the unnamed device will grab the title of world's thinnest phone (for at least a month or two anyway). There's no details part the picture, but the visuals can't help but remind us of a certain flagship from everyone's favorite litigious American manufacturer.

HTC canceled bigger battery plans for thinner phones

Would you rather have a larger phone with a bigger battery that lasts forever? Or a thin, sleek and sexy phone? This was HTC's question and apparently they decided to shelf the bigger battery plans to compete with the DROID RAZR MAXX and opted for a mild upgrade to the battery. This will enabled them to produce the thin and awesome phones like what we are seeing today in the HTC One X and One S.
