Pashupati Tradelink, the authorised distributor of Micromax smartphone in Nepal, is set to unveil the Canvas Sliver 5 smartphone. It is one of the thinnest smartphones with just 5.1 mm thickness end to end, with no protruding camera lens like on Oppo R5 (4.9 mm thickness) and Vivo X5 Max (4.8 mm thickness). The phone weighs just 97 gm, labeling it as one of the thinnest handset ever.

The phone features a 4.8-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage which unfortunately cannot be expanded via microSD card slot.

The Canvas Sliver 5 sports an 8-megapixel auto focus rear camera with Sony IMX219 CMOS sensor and LED flash. It also has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Because of its thin body, the Canvas Sliver 5 only boasts a 2000mAh battery. The phone runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and supports single 4G LTE  nano SIM card.
