Vivo couldn’t hold on with the title of making the world’s slimmest smartphone, for long. The 4.75mm thick Vivo X5 Max is now the second slimmest, with the Coolpad Ivvi K1 Mini becoming the slimmest at 4.7mm, and it comes from a chinese brand Coolpad. While the other slim devices have no much compromises with the specs, the Ivvi K1 Mini doesn’t seem like a high-end device with the specs included.
There’s no vast difference in the thickness, as the Ivvi K1 Mini is just 0.5mm thinner than Vivo X5 Max, and 1.5mm thinner than Oppo R5. But, it is that difference which makes it into the lists. If you are confused about the brand Coolpad, it is the same one that made the Coolpad F2 (rebranded as Yu Yureka in India).
Resolution not known, the Coolpad Ivvi K1 Mini comes with a 4.7-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (64-bit, quad-core 1.2 GHz CPU), 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. The cameras included are a 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, while the device has a 1800 mAh battery. The 4G LTE connectivity support will be there as well.
A baby skin texture is placed by the company, is to keep the fingerprints away. Just like the other slim smartphones in the competition, the camera pops out a little from the back. The company says there are a lot of improvements done to capture the best possible image, using some intelligent algorithms. The Ivvi K1 Mini also has an intelligent remote control feature, which is said to control electronics at home, including washing machines, refrigerators and televisions.
The pricing of it is set at CNY 1,299, which is about $210. A very good pricing for what is offered, especially the 4G LTE. But whether the device will be available outside China, is an unanswered question. We still expect this to be available via. some other brand anytime soon in the other markets.
