Chinese smartphone makers are on a roll lately, and Gionee's latest Elife S5.5 comes as a living proof. Well, not exactly living, as it's still on preorder, but the company claims it is the thinnest smartphone ever, at 5.5 mm. This puts the 5.75 mm Vivo X3 to shame, and will certainly be a sight to behold.

As for the other specs in the sheet - we'll be getting a 5" display of undisclosed resolution, 1.7 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP rear camera, and 5 MP frontal one, as well as a 2300 mAh battery. This capacity seems pretty good for such an anorexic phone, and Gionee claims that the Elife S5.5 will be able to get you through the working day on battery juice alone.
The slim handset will have both 3G and LTE versions, with the 3G one now up on preorder for the decent sum of $370 unsubsidized, while the LTE variant is scheduled to arrive in June. What's more interesting is that the company claims it will gradually launch the phone in 40 countries worldwide, so once those markets become clear, you can start saving for the next king on the "world's thinnest" throne.

Well Thanks for sharing such a great post @kn_andre. With this device, I don't whether they looked at the competiting markets before coming out with pricing. Specs wise is cool.

prices for these things are ridiculous it will be some time before i ever get a smart phone...

Well According to the article, the price for the Phone is about $370 ....Considering the Specs and if its Operator Unlocked, then i think its a Bit on the High Side .. But who knows? Maybe when its Officially Released, they could Chop Some amount of the Price Tag ... Cheers ..
