Gionee to launch thinnest-ever smartphone


Gionee-Elife-S5.5NEW DELHI: Just months after launching the Gionee Elife S5.5, Gionee seems to be working towards breaking a record set by its own smartphone.

The Chinese smartphone company is working on a ridiculously slim smartphone which is just 5mm thick. The company’s Elife S5.5 holds the record for being the thinnest smartphone at 5.5mm.

Chinese certification agency TENAA has published a certification filing for a Gionee phone codenamed GN9005, which is just 5mm thick. It measures 139.8×67.4x5mm and weigh 94.6gram.

Compared to the Elife S5.5, the upcoming phone’s hardware specifications are inferior. It sports a 4.8-inch 720x1280p display (the S5.5 has a full-HD one).

Unlike the Elife S5.5, which boasts an octa-core processor and 2GB RAM, the phone will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM.

The slim phone will sport an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera, and come with a 2050mAh battery. It will support China Mobile network band (TD-SCDMA) and TD-LTE 4G.
