Chinese manufacturer, Umeox, has unveiled the world's slimmest smartphone – ‘Umeox X5’, which measures only 5.6mm thick.

The ‘Umeox X5’ has snatched away the title of the world's slimmest smartphone few days after Huawei unveiled what it claimed to be the world's slimmest smartphone - Acend P6; it measures 6.18mm thick.

But the Umexo X5 has now outperformed the Huawei Acend P6 in terms of thickness and, the Umeox X5 is approximately 0.5mm thinner than the Huawei Ascend P6.

The Umeox X5 has a 5.3-inch touchscreen, and is powered by a dual-core processor. It has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 3-megapixel front camera. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Umeox currently has a decent portfolio of Android phones, some of which are sold under the Thomson Mobile brand in Europe.
