How the Slimmest phone was Made?
To make Vivo X5 Max, the thinnest phone in the world, Vivo followed many processes. A motherboard was designed with only a thickness of 0.067 inches i.e. 1.7 mm. An extremely thin screen assembly was used which measured only 0.05 inches i.e. 1.36 mm. Also, the world’s thinnest speaker box with 0.09 inches or 2.45 mm thickness was placed inside the phone.
The Vivo X5 Max phone is even more impressive as even in this thickness, there is a dual SIM slot and a headphone jack which measures 3.5 mm.
To make the Vivo X5 Max the world’s thinnest smartphone, Vivo hasn’t cut back on other features. With the slimmest size it can still give a tough competition to others in its functioning.
The Vivo X5 Max will release on 22nd December in China and will be available at a price of $486 (2998 RMB). Even though the release is in China, it may gradually release in other countries around the globe in the future.
