Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 Unveiled On Stage

Micromax on Thursday as launched a new budget smartphone in India, the Canvas Sliver 5. The phone carries a price tag of Rs 17,999 ($281 USD) and will be available starting from first week of July at both online and offline retailer outlets.

The Canvas Sliver 5 is tout by the firm as world's slimmest and lightest smartphone, weighting just 97 gram with thickness of 5.1mm. But wait a min, does this means 5.1mm is slimmer than 4.7mm? We remember Coolpad claiming world's slimmest phone title last year with Ivvi K1 Mini which sports 4.7mm body thickness. Maybe Micromax Canvas Sliver 5 is India's slimmest smartphone afterall. No hype.
