The Chinese smartphone manufacturer VKworld is all set to launch its new smartphone with some interesting features up its sleeves. The new smartphone from the company is called the Crown V8. This is the company’s latest offering, and it is the world’s thinnest smartphone. Yes, it only 4.7mm in thickness. Not only that, but it is also the world’s first thermal touch phone. This phone is unique by itself, providing a whole new touch screen interaction.
Talking about the design of the smartphone, it comes in a unique-looking package again. The front and the back of the device are covered by glass and the side frame is made out of metal, giving it a very premium feel in the hand. The phone also has a unique shape, which is very different from other and anything like we have seen before. The phone appears to closely resemble the Moto Droid Razr and also looks like some Vertu phones.
Another interesting feature about the phone is that it has an IP67 rating. So the phone is waterproof, dust-proof and the company also claims that it is shatter-proof. According to the company, the phone can withstand a one-meter depth of water for about 30 minutes. The phone also comes with Coring Gorilla Glass 4, but apparently, the company has made some redesigns with it. They have added an extra shatter shield layer on the surface of the glass, in order to protect it from drops.
The screen of the VKworld Crown V8 comes with an LG IPS display. The smartphone also packs front-facing speakers with surround sound. The Crown V8 will be available to purchase starting mid-July and will be available for the price of $79.99 (about 5,500 INR). We have no other specifications about the device as of now, but we expect to get more information about the device in coming days as we get close to the release date.
The only interesting feature of this device is its thermal touch screen, as it is the first of it’s kind and it will be interesting to see how the company has implemented it. Stay tuned for more information.
