Time was, smartphone manufacturers were obsessed with making the next world’s thinnest smartphone, blissfully unaware that what consumers really wanted was a big fat battery – even if it meant a slightly thicker phone. But those days are long behind us now, right? RIGHT?
Ladies, gents; prepare to meet what will almost certainly be the next world’s thinnest smartphone, the stupdily thin Gionee GN9005.
First things/thing’s first: what the hell is a Gionee when it’s at home? Answer: “Gionee Communication Equipment Co. Ltd was founded on September 2002 by Liu Li Rong. It is a high tech enterprise that focuses on the R&D, production and sales of cellular mobile devices.” You don’t say.
Following on the heels of the Gionee Elife S5.5, which conveniently measured – you guessed it – 5.55mm thin (don’t forget those five hundredths of a millimetre), we’re told to brace for something even thinner.
Specifically, the Gionee GN9005 measures a frankly ridiculous five millimetres, and as such it comes as little surprise to hear that the internals aren’t up to much.
Gionee GN9005 specs include a 4.8in 720p display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage, 8MP/5MP cameras, and a 2,050mAh battery.
Decidedly meh, but then the likelihood of the Gionee GN9005 getting a UK visa are slim to none.
