A Chinese Startup Just Made The Thinnest Smartphone In The World, And It Looks Gorgeous

China-based Oppo recently unveiled its new R5 smartphone, which is more than two millimeters thinner than Apple's iPhone 6.

The sleek Oppo R5 measures just 4.85mm thin, compared to the 6.9mm iPhone 6. It's the thinnest smartphone in the world, and it's even too slim to fit a traditional headphone jack. You'll need to use Oppo's special adapter, which is included with the phone.

Although it's super thin, the Oppo R5 comes with the same hardware specifications as its thicker competitors, including a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, 2GB of memory, and a 1.5GHz octa-core processor.

The term "octa-core" means the phone's processor has eight different parts (or "cores") that can each handle separate tasks, meaning it should be able to multitask easily.

Despite being more than two millimeters thinner than Apple's new flagship, the Oppo R5 comes with a larger battery than the iPhone 6 (2,000 mAh vs. 1,810 mAh).
There's also a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front camera, which is unusually large compared to most phones that include 1-2-megapixel front cameras.

The phone is set to roll out globally in December, and it'll cost $499 contract-free. Here's a look at the phone:
The Oppo R5 incredibly thin, but you'll notice that the camera juts out a bit.
