This 6-inch 2K screen device will boast a 23.7-megapixel rear camera to be specific. The chipset will be an octa-core 2GHz one paired with 3GB RAM. However, the rumored fingerprint scanner to be built in the handset is still not confirmed yet.

Another good news is that Gionee Elife E8 together with Gionee M5 (famous for its remarkably huge 6,000mAh battery) are going to be launched in Beijing, China on 10 June, 2015. Just a few days to go!



Though Elife E7 has just gone on sale, Mr. William Lu – Gionee’s President claimed that they would introduce Elife E8 soon. This new comer has frankly drawn quite much attention since there was some revelation about Gionee Elife E8 camera and the latest news says that it has an ability of taking 100 mega-pixel photos.

Gionee Elife E8 appeared on the certification website of China TENAA not very long ago. Thanks to the TENAA visit and some new teasers posted by Gionee, we know more about Elife E8 camera. It will be a 23MP rear shooter that is capable of producing 100MP photos. Many people predict that the technology can be similar to what is used on OPPO Find 7, which can take 50MP pictures.

If you remember, the Find 7 rear camera includes a 13MP Sony Exmor RS (Stacked CMOS) IMX214 sensor, a six-part lens with f/2.0 aperture, and OPPO’s Pure Image 2.0 image processor which makes 50-megapixel “Super Zoom” creation possible. The camera will take 10 shots extremely quickly consecutively, then automatically pick out four best shots and combine those into a 50-megapixel one. Back to Gionee Elife E8, it might go that way too but with a 23.8MP sensor which is perhaps the OmniVision OV23850. The OV23850 offers  phase detection autofocus, HDR in real-time (video only) and 4K video at 30fps.


Other Gionee Elife E8 Specs:

Along with the camera sensor, Gionee Elife E8 will also feature a 6” screen with 1440×2560 Quad HD resolution that gives a pixel density of 639ppi. On the other hand, the phone has 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage, fingerprint scanner, 7MP front camera, and a 3,520mAh battery. The whole device will be powered by MT6795 SoC and run by Android 5.0. However, these still remain to be officially confirmed.

If the Gionee Elife E8 taking 100MP photos does come true, consumers who want to have great pictures can take this smartphone into consideration. Elife E8 release date and price will probably be announced in the next few weeks, and then Gionee Elife E8 Malaysia can be also brought to our country. Let’s wait and see!
