Gionee’s Elife S5.5, which is just 5.5 mm thick and thus currently holds the title of world’s slimmest smartphone, is now available in India for Rs 22,999.
The Gionee Elife S5.5 has a 5 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with full HD resolution. Like other Gionee smartphones, it too comes with Android-based Amigo OS which is a heavily customised version of Android. Unlike the orthodox Android user interface where there is a home screen and a menu screen, here there is only a home screen.
The Gionee Elife S5.5 is armed with an octa-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. As of now only one model of the phone with 16 GB internal storage has been announced which does not have any micro SD card slot.
The handset has a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera. Besides, there is a 2,300 mAh non removable battery in the phone. For connectivity, this 3G smartphone (with 42 Mbps download speed) comes with WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a micro USB port with USB on-the-go feature that would enable users to directly connect it with an external storage device like a pen drive via a ‘male micro USB to female full USB’ cable.
