The Gionee Elife E8 gets a 23.7-megapixel camera that supports lossless zoom in real time.And yes we do get the option to record 4K videos as well.
However, Gionee has used the powerful Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10 chipset on the Elife E8 which compares well with the current crop of Qualcomm and Exynos chipsets being offered from Qualcomm and Samsung, respectively.
The Helio X10 chipset is an octa-core beast with each core sprinting at 2.0 Ghz It also packs in 3GB of RAM as well.
This might be on the slightly lower side because we now have devices that offer 4GB of RAM – the likes of the Asus Zenfone 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, being a few examples.
Moving on to the display, the Gionee Elife E8 gets an “upgrade” here with the display size being increased from 5.5-inches to 6 inches.
The display resolution also sees an upgrade from full HD to QHD (1920 x 1080) to (1,440 x 2560) pixels.
The phone will come in a 64GB variant and thankfully, unlike the E7, you do get the option to expand the memory further – up to 128GB using micro SD cards.The graphics department will be handled by the Power VR G6200 chip, which will ensure a great gaming experience.Apart from this, the Elife E8 would also be the first phone from the company to get a fingerprint sensor. While the outgoing E7 boasted of a 16-megapixel camera, which as we mentioned was great in itself, the new Elife E8 gets a significant upgrade here as well in the megapixels department.Gionee, the Chinese smartphone maker and one of the largest ODMs (Original Device Manufacturers) in the world, has announced that it would launch its newest Android powered flagship handset, the Gionee Elife E8, in India starting October 8, 2015.The announcement comes just a few weeks after Gionee also announced its plans to make some of its handsets in India.Coming back to the Gionee Elife E8, this phone is widely touted to be a successor to the Gionee Elife E7, which was launched back in late 2013.
