Gionee prepping yet another ultra-thin device for MWC
With a few weeks till the beginning of the MWC in Barca, Spain, Gionee has started teasing an aggressively thin handset which will be launched at Hall 8 of the event’s venue in March. However, with the world’s thinnest smartphone — Vivo X5 Max — running at a baseline thinness of 4.75 mm, a senior exec at Gionee believes phone makers are now sacrificing some things such as battery life just to be called “slim”.
“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,” Oliver Sha, who is head of marketing at Gionee Global echoed on Monday.
