HTC and tablets do not really make for a good marriage as what had transpired in the past did not prove inspirational for the Taiwanese company, although they look set to strain ahead and move forward with the rumored Nexus 9 from Google, where HTC is touted to be the hardware manufacturer for this device. Well, how about phablets? HTC has had better luck in this particular department, and in the latest rumor that hails from the serial leakster over at @upleaks, it would be the HTC Y5 that would come under scrutiny this time around.
When it comes to the world of smartphones, these particular devices too, would want to be thinner and thinner – after all, it follows the general trend where consumer electronics are concerned. Gionee of China already holds the distinction of having the world’s thinnest production smartphone in the form of the Gionee Elife S5.5, and this time around, it looks set to wow the masses with their upcoming device that will be even thinner than the 5.5mm slim predecessor mentioned earlier – thanks to the introduction of the Gionee Elife S5.1.
