Chinese handset maker Gionee said its latest device which comes with a 5.1 mm body has been recognised by Guinness Book of World Records as the slimmest smartphone in the world.
The device, which has been launched in China, will come to the Indian market by early November.
"We are excited to have made it to the Guinness World Records for the world's thinnest smartphone category. The Gionee Elife S5.1 has been launched in China and will be available in India by early November," Gionee Smartphones India Head Arvind Vohra told PTI.
The device comes in a thin 5.1 mm shell comprising both glass and metal. The handset has a 4.8 inch screen and runs on 1.2 GHz quad core Qualcomm snapdragon processor supported by 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of built-in storage. The device has 8 MP rear camera and LTE connectivity.
Gionee decided to launch its brand in India in the first quarter of 2013. It used to be an original device manufacturer (ODM) for many Indian brands earlier.
