The Guinness World Records' record for the thinnest laptop computer is the Windows 7 Dell Adamo XPS, which ranges between 9.7 mm (0.38 in) at its slimmest point to 10.3 mm (0.41 in) at its thickest – an average of 9.99 mm (0.39). The Adamo stays skinny by relocating key components and tucking the keyboard inside the reinforced 13.4-in display enclosure when closed. It measures 340 x 273.9 x 9.99 mm (13.39 x 10.78 x .39 in).
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Thinnest 5x zoom digital camera, set by Kodak's EasyShare M590 14 MP digital camera which is, at 15.2mm (0.6 in), the slimmest with a 5x zoom lens, and at 129 g (4.55 oz), one of the lightest.
Its got a 5.2-inch, 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution AMOLED display and is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor (quad 2.1-GHz and quad 1.5-GHz).
Inside is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, but it doesn't have a microSD card for expandability.
Its 13MP rear camera, which seems to protrude from its ultra thin design similarly to the iPhone 6's camera, can take 50MP photos through stitching, and it has a 5MP front-facing camera as well.
The R5 also boasts VOOC rapid charging, so its 2,000 mAh cell battery can be juiced up to at least 75 percent after being charged for just 30 minutes.
