New Delhi: Gionee has launched Elife S5.5 in India at Rs 22,999 at an event held in Goa. The company claims the phone to be world's thinnest with a thickness of just 5.5mm. The device will be available in April. The Gionee Elife S5.5 made its first appearance ahead of MWC in February. The smartphone went on sale on March 18 in China.
The Elife S5.5 flaunts a thin metal frame chassis and offers premium specs. The phone measures 145.1x70.2x5.55mm, and weighs 130 grams with its metal chassis.
It comes with a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display (1080x1920 pixels) with a pixel density of 441ppi, one of the first to be featured on a non-Samsung phone.
The Elife S5.5 is powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core CPU coupled with 2GB of RAM. The chipset has not yet been specified, though it's likely to be MediaTek's MT6592, which is also seen in the Elife E7 Mini.
The phone comes with a 13-megapixel rear shooter with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calls. It has 16GB of internal storage with no further expandability option via microSD card.
Also, like all other Gionee phones, the device runs company's Amigo OS, a heavily-skinned version of Android, which adds some interesting shortcuts and homescreens in addition to the standard Android screens.
Connectivity options on the Elife S5.5 include 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and USB OTG.
The device gets its juice from a non-removable 2300mAh battery, which according to Gionee will easily last more than a day.
