Gionee has launched the Elife S5.5, the world’s slimmest smartphone in India at an event in Goa earlier this week. It is just 5.5 mm in thickness and features a 5 inch full HD Super Amoled Display. The device runs on Amigo 2.0 OS (based on Android 4.2) and it is powered by a 1.7 GHz octa-core processor along with 2GB of RAM.
In the front you have a 5 inch full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and above the display you have proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, an earpiece and a 5 megapixel front facing camera. Below the screen you have 3 usual Android touch buttons – menu, home and back.
The back of the device has a glass covering and you will find a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash, Gionee branding in the center and a speaker grill at the back. It comes with a 2300mAh non removable battery.
The device has a thin metal chassis, micro SIM card slot on the right side and volume rocker & power/lock key on the left. Overall, Elife S5.5 has very good build quality and design.
