Gionee has outdone itself yet again, produces a smartphone which sides measure a groundbreaking 5.15 mm thin
Gionee is a Chinese mobile manufacturer that managed to become popular thanks to its world’s slimmest smartphone, the Gionee Elife S5.5. Now the company has outdone itself once again producing the even slimmer smartphone known as the Elife S5.1, which sides measure a groundbreaking 5.15 mm thin. The phone is said to be ready to hit the market soon.
Gionee Elife S5.1 World’s Thinnest Smartphone
The very first information on the smartphone leaked from the TENAA certification data based in July giving us the first glimpse of the device. Today, with the new live photos popping on the Net, we get even more details on the Elife S5.1’s specs and design.
The smartphone with its side measuring only 5.15 mm is almost paper sheet thin, it is also more than 3mm thinner than its having 5.5mm thick body predecessor, the Elife S5.5. So, along with the launch of the Elife S5.1 the world’s slimmest title passes to it, but in fact the title still belongs to Gionee.
The exact dimensions of the Elife S5.1 are 139.8 mm × 67.4 mm × 5.15 mm. Though the phone’s sides were designed to feature the maximum thinness, the upper and lower sides are a little wider which may be explained by the fact that they have to house the micro-USB port and headphone jack. Aside form its innovative ultra thin body factor, the phone has a beautiful, more sophisticated external design that embraces materials such as glass and metal, and even though it is extremely thin it somehow managed to embrace quite massive 2,100 mAh battery.
In terms of specs the new Elife S5.5 strongly resembles its predecessor. What means that this sporting an AMOLED 720p 4.8-inch display, LTE connectivity, 8-megapixel rear shooter accompanied by 5-megapixel front one, running 1.2GHz Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 400 coupled with 1GB RAM and having 16GB of expandable internal storage smartphone won’t be the Gionee’s next flagship, instead it will be another mid-rang device but the one with outstandingly slim body. Furthermore, the Elife S5.1 operates on Android 4.3 paired with Gionee’s own Amigo 2.0 interface.
Despite the fact that the Elife S5.1 is scheduled to become available on the China’s market this month, we still don’t know its price tag and whether it will also hit the global market. While waiting for more details, try entertain yourself with watching the huge gallery of Elife S5.1’s pics.
