We knew that Gionee was going to launch its new smartphone called the Gionee Elife S5.5 which is the slimmest smartphone of the world measuring just 5.5mm and today, the company took the center stage in Goa and made the smartphone official for a price tag of Rs.22,999 which we feel is competitive for the specification and uniqueness the phone comes with.


The Gionee Elife S5.5 packs in a 5 inch Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels while the device is powered by a powerful 1.7 GHz Octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor with Mali 450-MP4 GPU which is coupled with 2GB LPDDR3 RAM so the performance on the device will undoubtedly be good. There is 16 GB of internal memory on the device which users will be able to make use of but sadly this will not be expandable using a microSD card slot as Gionee has not included it on the smartphone. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean runs the show on the Gionee Elife S5.5 with Gionee’s very own Amigo 2.0 UI on the top of it.

There is a sweet 13 megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash on the back of the Gionee Elife S5.5 which comes with a stacked Sony sensor and is capable of recording videos at 1080p while a front facing 5 megapixel camera is also available for users. Connectivity options include the usual 2G, 3G, GPS, USB OTG, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB, 3.5mm audio jack and FM Radio. There is a powerful 2300 mAh battery to keep the Gionee Elife S5.5 running all day for the users.

The phone will be available to users in Pink, Blue, Black, White and Purple colour options with an availability slated for mid-to-end of April in India for Rs.22,999. So, overall, the Gionee Elife S5.5 seems to be a great buy for users if they are looking for style and sleekness from their phone.
