The Huawei Ascend P6 hasn’t been able to hold on to its title of “the world’s thinnest smartphone” for long. The title now goes to Vivo X3, a smartphone manufactured in China which is expected to be released in majority of the Asian markets. It touts a 5 inch 720p HD display, a MediaTek 1.5GHz quadcore processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, a 5 megapixel front camera, 16GB of on-board storage with support for external expansion and a 2,000 mAh battery.

The Vivo X3 has been manufactured by BBK, a company based in China. This smartphone is just 5.6mm thin, the Huawei Ascend P6 comes in at 6.1mm whereas the iPhone is 7.6mm thin. It is expected that BBK will release this smartphone in a number of Asian markets this fall and it is unlikely that we’ll see this smartphone make its way to Europe or North America. The Vivo X3 is selling for 2,498 Yuan in China, which roughly translated into $400. It appears to be a good deal given all of the features and specifications this device offers, however the only way you can get your hands on one if you import a unit straight from China.
