Coolpad Ivvi 4.7mm phone hits TENAA, isn’t thin as expected!

Remember a few days back, CoolPad’s Ivvi sub brand revealed a new poster which hinted about a phone that was just 4.7mm thin? We all thought that the device would steal away Vivo X5 Max flagship’s thinnest smartphone title. But it looks like, Vivo’s smartphone will stay the thinnest smartphone in the world as today’s TENAA listing reveals that the new Ivvi 4.7mm phone won’t be thin at all. In fact, according to today’s standards, we may even call it a bit thick!

According to the TENAA listing, the Coolpad Ivvi SK-01 comes with the body measurements 139*67.8*7.9mm, which makes it thicker than most other smartphones in the market. Vivo X5 Max and OPPO’s R5 were thinner than even 5mm and as you can see, this phone is noway near that mark. So, if this information turns out to be true, then Vivo and OPPO have nothing to worry about.

But there is one peculiar thing about this smartphone. The pictures on TENAA reveal that the phone will have no bezels. Or the bezels are extremely thin and blend with the black color of the display. Whatever the case may be, it looks like the display covers the edges on the sides, much like Sharp’s Aquos Crystal smartphone (except for the bezels on top).

Other than this, the SK-01 looks like a lower mid-range device. The phone features a 4.7-inch display with a disappointing resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. That’s quite low even for a mid-range phone. Inside, there will be a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB of expandable memory. The rear camera is of 8MP while the front shooter is of 5MP. The phone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat OS and supports 4G LTE, GSM,TD-SCDMA,TD-LTE,LTE FDD, 3G and 2G networks.

So looks like we will have to wait for some more time before a manufacturer releases a phone that’s thinner than 4.7mm!
