Gionee claimed that they have shipped out over 1 Million devices in India in last FY. Those are huge numbers especially for a player that is just entering into the market and is probably younger than the youngest cub. The company announced the Elife E7 in one of the most high profile media events at the Buddha International Circuit in December 2013 and it has certainly topped those in what is easily the biggest collective presence of the bloggers in the Indian space, with the Elife S5.5 launch.
The Gionee Elife S5.5 is the slimmest smartphone in the world, in what is a really reassuring glass and metallic finish. The device is 5.5 mm thin and comes in four colors inspired by the colors of famous locations around the world. The specifications of the device are as follows:
- 5.0” Super AMOLED Plus display
