Get your hands on world’s slimmest smartphone at Rs 17,999

New Delhi: Indian handset maker Micromax has launched the slimmest smartphone in the world. Yes, the company claimed so on Thursday.

Micromax’s Canvas Sliver 5 is the slimmest phone ever. At a mere 5.1 mm thickness, excluding any camera bumps on the rear side, the Sliver 5 sure is a head turner.

The phone is not just slim but it’s also light at just 97 grams. The metallic frame with the double layer of bright aluminium coating, adds a touch of class to this slim phone.

Australian actor Hugh Jackman has been roped in to endorse the phone. The Hollywood star will soon be seen in a high-end commercial for the Canvas Series, taking ahead Micromax’s promise of ‘Nothing like Anything’ experience.

The Canvas Sliver 5 comes with a 4.8inch HD AMOLED display. There is also a touch layer merged with the AMOLED display. The phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Chipset which has a 1.2GHz quad core processor and is paired with 2GB RAM.

On the storage front, the phone offers 16GB out of which only 11.4GB is available to the user. However, there is no provision for additional micro SD card.

The phone comes with single SIM 4G LTE connectivity and has Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS connectivity.

Canvas Sliver 5 sports an 8MP rear camera with a Sony IMX219 stacked CMOS sensor. On the front, there is a 5MP camera which also has access to the professional mode features.

The Canvas Silver 5 is packed with a 2000mAh lithium polymer battery which according to Micromax offers a 1 day battery life on regular use case.

The device, priced at Rs 17,999, comes with a free 4G SIM and double data offer from Airtel which doubles the 4G data amount for any consumer activating the 4G SIM.

Micromax Canvas Silver 5 will be available from June end across India.
