We all know that Gionee is going to release its flagship device for the year, the Gionee Elife E8 soon. The device recently hit TENAA which revealed that the phone will come with a 23MP rear camera.

Gionee elife e8 100MP camera

While this rear camera unit is much bigger than competitors, it looks like the company has something more in store for its fans. Earlier today, a new poster revealed that the Gionee Elife E8 could be capable of capturing pictures in a massive 100MP resolution. Yes, you heard it right, we said 100MP! This will be the first time, a smartphone camera will be capable of taking such high resolution pictures.


Of course, you could have guessed by now that the camera unit itself won’t be of 100MP. Instead, the 23MP shooter will be able to digitally stitch and interpolate pictures to such a high resolution. It looks like Gionee will be using a similar tech to what OPPO used in its Find 7 flagship to take 50MP images. The camera could be the 23.8MP OV23850 that was announced back in January this year. It features 1 / 2.3 inch PureCel-S stacked CMOS, support phase focusing and real-time HDR functions.


Other tech specs are also pretty high end. TENAA listing revealed that the phone will feature an octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz, 3GB RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 3520mAh battery and also a Huawei Mate 7 style fingerprint sensor.

So, overall the Gionee Elife E8 turns out to be a powerful handset. Now, we just wait for the official launch of the device which should be pretty soon.

        Yes. MicroSD is a must for this phone.

  • I think the price would be RMB2999, about $500

    I think Sony sensors are better then OmniVision .

      It’s not as simple as that. Jiayu S3 has a better sensor (IMX214) than the LG G3 (IMX135), and the same than the OnePlus One (IMX214), and the results between them are far from similar. The Gionee E7 had an OV sensor and it takes better photos than tons of devices with Sony sensors.

      What I’m trying to say is that the implementation (software) of the sensor is way more important than the sensor itself. Sony may be the biggest manufacturer, but a properly implemented OV sensor would “destroy” a Sony sensor controlled by bad software, as far as final results.
