Gionee has launched the Gionee Elife E7 mini smartphone in India today for Rs. 18999. It will also launch the Gionee Elife E7, the company’s latest flagship phone at the event. The mini version of the flagship that will sport a octa-core processor from MediaTek and will have a relatively smaller 4.7inch 720p display.
We managed to get a hands-on with this device and you can check out the hands-on photos right below. The Gionee Elife E7 mini is powered by the 1.7GHz Octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor and has 1GB RAM to support multi-tasking. Gionee is known for its build quality and that is clearly seen in the Gionee Elife E7 mini as it is solidly built. One of the innovations in the Gionee Elife E7 mini is its 13MP swivel camera that we already saw in Oppo N1. Like most Gionee top range phones, the Elife E7 mini is a sealed unit and feels quite premium just like the Elife E6.
Gionee Elife E7 mini runs on a Android 4.2 with Amigo UI on top. The UI was laggy on the Gionee Elife E6 as it had just a quad-core processor and a Full HD 1080p display to power. We expect things to have improved and we are hoping that the performance of Elife E7 mini is excellent.
On the top, we have the swivel camera and hence the microUSB port, the 3.5mm audio jack are found on the bottom part of the device.
On the left, we have just a microSIM tray.
On the right side of the phone, we have a volume rocker and power lock button.
The photos are right below. Let us know what you think of the device.
