Quite quietly, Samsung recently launched its new Galaxy A8 device, which is definitely the thinnest smartphone the South Korean phone maker has ever produced so far. Officially announced in China, the Galaxy A8 comes with a frame that is only 5.9 millimeters thick, which makes it thinner than the Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A3 devices, two of Samsung’s previous slimmest smartphone offerings. Design wise, however, the Galaxy A8 takes after its predecessors.
Chinese phone makers seem to like their devices ultra-slim. Earlier this year, Gionee introduced the Elife S5.1 smartphone, which has a thickness (more like thinness) of 5.1 millimeters. And then Oppo trumped Gionee's offering by introducing its own, the R5 smartphone, which comes with a thickness of 4.85 millimeters.
This time around, Vivo is setting a new record with its X5Max device. This Android phone measures a jaw-dropping 4.75 millimeters in thickness. Despite its super-thin quality, the X5Max still manages to offer a few interesting features. What exactly can you pack within a 4.75 millimeter thick body?
