Last year, OPPO released its super thin OPPO R5 smartphone which was less than 5mm thin. Later came an even thinner phone, the Vivo X5Max this time from another Chinese manufacturer which boasted of a 4.8mm thin profile.
A few weeks ago, Coolpad’s Ivvi had released a teaser hinting at the launch of a phone which could possibly be the world’s thinnest smartphone yet. And now, the company has finally unveiled such a device, the all new Coolpad Ivvi K1 Mini which boasts of a thickness of just 4.7mm.
Unlike the above mentioned two devices which feature top of the line high end specs, the Ivvi K1 Mini will be a lower mid-range smartphone with decent specs. The company has put in a BABY Skin back texture on the device which does not attract fingerprints.
For hardware, the Coolpad Ivvi K1 Mini comes with a Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM which is probably expandable. The phone will feature a 4.7-inch display which we expect will have a resolution of 720p. At the back, there will be an 8MP camera, while up front there is a 5MP shooter. The company says that the phone will come with a lot of camera centric features like beauty shots and intelligent algorithms to capture the best possible image. Despite its low placement, the phone will come with 4G LTE network support. Given its super thin profile, the phone can only accommodate a 1800mAh battery inside. Also, the Ivvi K1 Mini has an intelligent remote control feature which allows the user to control almost anything at home including air conditioners, washing machines, televisions and many more appliances.
The Coolpad Ivvi K1 Mini will be available for sale in just white color at the moment for a price tag of 1299 Yuan which comes to around $200. The company has added that there will be more colors to choose from in the next few weeks.[source]
