Called it Micromax Canvas Sliver 5. World’s thinnest phone without any bumps, nevertheless waistline measuring at only 5.1mm. True competitor amongst the current ones vs. Oppo R5 and Vivo X5Max and iPhone 6 with 6.9mm slimmer smartphones and a bit thin as Gionee Elife 5.1 with 5.15mm, the new Canvas Silver 5 goes with 5.1mm.
The Canvas Sliver 5 is fully screened with a 4.8-inch HD (1280×720) AMOLED Full Lamination display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The latest one in Canvas series brings the thickness down compared to IPS panels and Gorilla Glass 2. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset clocked at 1.2GHZ quad-core processor with Adreno 306 GPU.
On the software side, the Silver 5 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, alongside a microSD card support and made the smartphone weigh at a mere 97 grams. It still packs a 2000mAh battery, which is somewhat not a good sign when purchasing such thinnest one.
The smartphone comes in a single-SIM configuration, left behind is the Dual SIM functionality, which is another drawback, but it supports 4G LTE (FDD-1800/2600/800 MHz & TDD-2300MHz), and has a NXP Smart PA audio chip and Dirac HD audio technology for an enhanced audio experience. Other connectivity options includes 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS.
Now that the Canvas Sliver 5 sports an 8MP rear camera with LED flash, Sony IMX219 sensor, 4P Largan Lens, 1080p video recording and houses a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor. Available to buy in Black and White colors.
