Chinese smartphone vendor Vivo is all set to enter the Indian market today with the launch of the much-awaited X5Max. The device is touted to be the world’s slimmest with 4.75mm waistline, dethroning the Oppo R5 which is 4.85mm thick.

The phone comes with a 13-megapixel shooter at the back and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper upfront. The dual-SIM capable X5Max supports 4G LTE connectivity and runs Android 4.4.4 on top. To achieve such thinness, the company has reportedly shifted 90 percent of the internal components to the sides of the screen.
The device damped Oppo’s hype of its R5 smartphone, which was the slimmest smartphone, until Vivo announced the X5Max. The R5 is set to launch later this month under the Rs 30,000 bracket.
Vivo has plans to launch as many as five models in India ranging from Rs 7,000 to Rs 40,000. However today, the company is expected to launch only the X5Max. The company has broader plans for India and intends to establish its manufacturing units in the country over the next three years. It has already partnered with 20 distributors in 20 states.
