It seems that making the thinnest smartphone is the latest trend for Chinese manufacturers. Huawei launched the Ascend P6, which at a thickness of 6.18mm was considered to be the thinnest smartphone in the market.  Barely a month after that announcement comes Umeox Mobile’s X5, which is just 5.6mm thick.

Umeox X5 comes with a 5.3-inch touchscreen with a dual-core processor, 8 megapixel rear camera and a 3 megapixel front shooter. The dimensions of the device are 118 x 60 x 5.6mm. While other details are not yet available, it is assumed that the device will be launched in China this month, with countries like France getting the device in the following months.

Umeox has already carved out a niche for itself in the white-box vendor segment with its budget Android offerings that are sold under the Thomson Mobile name in Europe.
