One of such players is Gionee. This is a Chinese company that was formed in 2002 and has some interesting Smartphones for those who want to break off from the usual devices we currently have on the market. One device is the Gionee GN9005 which is still in the works but when released could be the thinnest Smartphone ever.

The Gionee GN900 is 5 mm thin making it thinner than the Samsung Galaxy S5 that is 8.1mm thin, the iPhone 5s that is 7.6mm thin and the Huawei Ascend P7 that is 6.5 mm thin.
