Handset manufacturer Gionee last year held the record for the slimmest handset in the world with its last year’s two handset the Elife S5.5 and the Elife S5.1. Now the company has announced that it would bring yet another super-slim smartphone on the 2nd on next month March at the MWC 2015. This has been stated by the company’s global marketing head Oliver Sha. He went out saying “The race to make the slimmest smartphone was getting out of hand. Going so slim is actually not benefiting user experience without the performance to back it up”

The existing Gionee Elife S5.1 is just 5.15mm thin which was then back in the competition when Oppo announced its Oppo R5 “slimmest of them all” smartphone. Another handset Vivo X5 Max also has a 4.8mm of thin profile. Now it seems that the company doesn’t want to lose its legacy in this niche and well we, the smartphone users, will surely enjoy this competition to exist so that we are benefited with more slimmer design.

Its just a matter of less than 30 days when we could get a curvy, slimmer and newer design from Gionee.
