Gionee Elife S7 was released way back in 2013, which means the company has not released a successor in more than a year. We have been hearing a lot about the upcoming flagship, the Gionee Elife E8 lately, which will succeed the S7 and the device has just hit TENAA revealing most of the specs of the device.
The Gionee Elife E8 is clearly targeted to compete with the Huawei Ascend Mate 7, sporting a massive 6-inch display with 2K resolution. The listing further adds that the display will use an AMOLED panel. The processor under the hood will be an octa-core chip clocked at 2GHz (most likely Snapdragon 810). There will be 3GB RAM and 32GB storage which can be further expanded via MicroSD.
One of the highlights of the device will be its rear camera. TENAA confirms the presence of a massive 23MP sensor at the back, which should definitely take clear pictures. Up front, you have an 8MP shooter ideal for selfies. Given the large display, Gionee has managed to fit in a big battery inside. You can expect more than a day’s usage with its 3520mAh battery. However, on the downside, the device is 9.6mm thick and weighs a hefty 205 grams.
The phone will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS with Gionee’s own Amigo OS 3.0. It will also feature a rear facing fingerprint sensor much like the Mate 7. Pricing details have not been revealed till now, but it is said that the phone will release sometime around June this year. So, stay tuned for more information.
