Gionee teases an upcoming device that is ‘perfectly slim’

Gionee is set to launch a device that will supposedly give light to a new meaning of ‘perfectly slim’ at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The company’s Elife S5.1 that used to rule the smartphone world in terms of thinness.

The company’s Elife S5.1 was once the title-holder for being the slimmest phone ever made (5.15mm). Just a month later Oppo R5 came into play with a body of just 4.85mm thin, but Vivo’s X5 now sets a record for the thinnest smartphone in the market at only 4.7mm.

Right now it seems like Gionee is planning a comeback with their event description that reads:

“This time around, we are here to show the world a product that refines the meaning of ‘perfectly slim’.”

By that it is still unclear whether Gionee is planning to go even way thinner than 4.7mm, or they’ll be coming up with the perfect balance of thinness without compromising key functions and features — hence the ‘perfectly slim’ part. Which road do you think have they chosen to take?

MWC 2015 will be happening on March 2-5 which gives us a little less than a month of waiting for the official announcements. Stay tuned. Meanwhile if thin smartphones are what you’re after, take a look at the slimmest smartphones in the Philippines.
