Gionee Elife S5.1 the World's Slimmest Smartphone: Guinness World Records
Chinese handset maker Gionee on Thursday said its latest device, the Elife S5.1, comes with a 5.1mm body, and has been recognised by Guinness Book of World Records as the slimmest smartphone in the world.

The Gionee Elife S5.1, which has been launched in China at roughly $325 (Rs. 20,000 approximately) and runs Android 4.3 with Amigo 2.0 UI onboard, 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 Elife S5.1 comes in a thin 5.1mm shell comprising both glass and metal. The handset has a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels (translating to a pixel density of 320ppi). It runs on 1.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, supported by 1GB of RAM. It features 16GB of non-expandable built-in storage.

Gionee's Elife S5.1 comes with a 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The company is also touting LTE connectivity, but support for Indian LTE bands is not known. It will be available in Black, White, Pink, and Mint Green colour variants.

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. The company had launched what it claimed to be the world's slimmest smartphone, the Elife S5.5 (Review | Pictures), in March in India at Rs. 22,999. However, it only became available in May.
