Gionee has launched the world’s slimmest smartphone, the Elife S5.5 in India. Flaunting a super slim frame at 5.5mm and with a set of top notch features, this phone has been launched at a competitive price point of Rs 22,999 and will go on sale on April 27 in India.

In terms of specifications, the Elife S5.5 sports a 5-inch 1080p display, which packs in 441ppi and is shielded by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. At its hearts runs an octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The phone however lacks an external memory card support to expand its memory. Camera-wise, it adorns a 13-megapixel rear camera supplemented with a 5-megapixel snapper at the front, and comes with a number of editing features. As far as the battery of the phone is concerned, the 2,300mAh battery housed in the phone has been claimed by the company to last for over a day.

It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean wrapped under the company’s Amigo UI.

The Elife S5.5 brings an array of high-end features on table at a relatively lower price point. It competes against the likes of Micromax Canvas Knight A350 which comes with features like a 5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS display with a pixel density of 443ppi, a true octa-core processor clocking at 2GHz, and 2GB of RAM. However, it flaunts a higher camera size at 16-megapixel on rear and an 8-megapixel camera at the front. The phone is priced at Rs 19,999. Another in the list is WickedLeak Wammy Passion X which too flaunts a 5-inch 1080p display, is powered by a 1.7GHz MediaTek MTK6592 octa-core chipset with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board memory and 13-megapixel/5-megapixel rear and front cameras.
