Gionee launched the world's thinnest smartphone to date  - the Gionee Elife S5.5. It packs a 5-inch full HD capacitive touchscreen display powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core processor bundled with a 2GB of RAM housed in a very impressive 5.55mm thin body.

With amazingly slim profile, they still managed to squeeze in a 2300mAh battery which they claim can last for 27 hours 2G talk time and 22 hours 3G talk time. However, there are also some corners need to cut down, for instance, the internal storage is limited to only 16GB without expansion slot.

It will be available next month in China with a price tag of 2300 Yuan or about 17K pesos, however, expect that it will be higher when it arrives in the country. The question now is when, since the Qualcomm powered flagship Elife E7 and another octa-core powered Elife E7 Mini are yet to come into the local scene.

  1. Would be a good point for discussion - and a long term debate at that, Cherry Mobile seems to keep the lead against O+, Starmobile, MyPhone, Gionee, SKK and all other Rebranders because somehow Cherry Mobile is able to keep their prices a thousand or two lower than their competitors.

    Ang magagawa na lang madalas ng competitor ni CM eh mauna sa latest tech. like how MyPhone was able to bring the first Octa Core for rebranded market just to be challenged again by CM.
