Gionee Elife E8

Build and Display

The new Gionee Elife E8 sports a relatively slim profile at a thickness of 9.6 millimetres. While the tablet wannabe might not be overly thick, it is a tad bulky at 207 grams in part due to its larger battery.

The Gionee Elife E8 packs an improved display measuring six inches diagonally, as against the 5.5-inch screen on the Gionee Elife E7. The AMOLED panel will have a Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution compared to the Full HD (1080p) resolution of its predecessor.

Camera and Storage

This tablet-like phone does not seem much different from its predecessor in the camera department. The Elife E8 looks likely to have a 16-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper, although GSMArena reports that the main camera is specified as 8 megapixels, perhaps, as a mistake.

Onboard storage on the device is 32GB and up to 128 GB extra storage space can be added using a microSD card.

Hardware and Software

Gionee Elife E8 will be equipped with an octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz. The model of the chipset is not known, but given its speed and number of cores, it is likely to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.

The chip is paired with 3GB RAM. The Elife E8 runs on Gionee’s Amigo UI, which is based on Android 5.0 (Lollipop) operating system. Juice for running the device is supplied by a 3520mAh battery.

One of the key features on the Gionee Elife E8 is a fingerprint scanner, which is fitting of a flagship device.

Gionee Elife E8 is not yet available in Nigeria. In fact, the phone is not yet official and the specs above and below are not final. We currently have no data on pricing and availability. When available, Gionee Elife E8 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N65,000 to N80,000, depending on your location in the country.
