Gionee Elife E7 mini launched with Oppo-like swivel camera, octa-core CPU

Chinese phone maker Gionee has just released the Elife E7 mini version of its mega-spec’d 5.5-inch, 1080p Elife E7 phone, but it resembles its larger sibling in name only. First off, the 13-megapizel camera and flash are on a swivel at the top, Oppo N1-style, a feature the full-sized handset lacks.

The specs are also a step down, starting with the 4.7-inch, 720p screen and continuing with the 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 CPU (instead of a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800) and 1GB of RAM in lieu of 3GB. It also sports 16GB of storage, dual-SIM 3G capability and Android 4.2.

Still, the folks at FoneArena who got their hands on one during its launch in India said it feels as premium as the Elife E7 and it looks to have skipped the fingerprint-prone glossy finish of that model. Though it likely won’t arrive in the US, selfie self-portrait lovers in India will be able to grab it for 18,999 (about $310). For more pics, hit the source.
