If the 6.9mm iPhone 6 is just too chunky for you, perhaps the Blue Vivo IV, the world’s thinnest smartphone, would be a better fit for your pocket at just 5.5mm thick. It comes with an even more attractive price tag at just $299 off-contract, and it’s packing some impressive specifications.

In addition to a 5-inch 1080p display with 440 pixels-per-inch, the Vivo IV boasts a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. There’s also a 5-megapixel camera on its front with a 95-degree wide-angle lens, 16GB of internal storage, and a 2,300mAh.

The Vivo IV has all the ingredients needed to take on the latest flagships from smartphone giants like Samsung and LG, then, and they’re packed into a stunning form factor that’s good enough to give even the HTC One M8 and Sony’s Xperia lineup some tough competition in design.

There are a couple of minor downsides, however. The Vivo IV does not have a microSD card slot for storage expansion, and it’ll come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean — a two-year-old operating system — pre-installed. There’s no promise of an Android L upgrade, either.

However, if you’re looking for an affordable Android smartphone with good specifications that looks downright terrific, then the Vivo IV could well be an excellent purchase. You can order yours now, directly from Blu, for $299 by following the source link below.
