The world's thinnest phone has been officially launched and it is a smartphone you will never have, or maybe even never want. The Gionee Elife S5.1 from Chinese brand Gionee was revealed sometime back, but is only getting its official launch today, boasting a minimal 5.1mm thick (or should that be thin?) body.The handset sports 4.8-inch AMOLED 720p HD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core chip clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash around the rear. Other specs include 16GB of storage that cannot be expanded, 2,100 mAh battery, and worryingly Android Jelly Bean 4.3 running with Gionee's own Amigo 2.0 software on top. You may be sad to know that you will never get to hold the world's thinnest phone, well not unless you are will to go to Chine to get one. That's right, the Gionee Elife S5.1 will not launch in the west, but there are always imports if you absolutely must.
