The Ivvi K1 Mini, manufactured by Chinese company 'Coolpad', is now officially the slimmest smartphone in the world. Announced back in January 2015, Ivvi k1 Mini took the title of slimmest smartphone from the previous holder Vivo X5 Max. The device is just 4.7mm thin, exactly 0.05mm less than the Vivo X5 Max.
The Ivvi K1 Mini is pitched as a mid-range device, and sports a 4.7-inch display. It'll be powered by a quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor paired with a decent 1GB RAM. It has a 5 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera to capture higher quality photos. The manufacturer claims the primary camera will have a ‘super-pixel’ mode which will allow the users to stitch multiple photos up to 32 megapixels, making it one of the best lower-cost camera phones currently available on the market.
In addition, the phone comes with 8GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. The only drawback is the battery, which is just 1,800 mAh. It should be sufficient for moderate usage but don’t expect it to run more than 7-8 hours. The device features ‘Baby Skin’ back cover which will not have any fingerprints.
The specifications aren’t mind-blowing, but the title of ‘slimmest smartphone’ will make it as must-own for some. The Ivvi K1 Min will be available in China ahead of February 19th, for a price tag of around 1299 CNY ($200).
