Gionee Elife S5.5 gets an update to Snapdragon 400 and LTE

Remember the ultra slim, 5.55mm, Gionee Elfie S5.5 which launched this year? Well it has already undergone an update and received a new processor and LTE.

The Gionee S5.5L is now the world’s thinnest Android smartphone with 4G LTE, and Snapdragon 400 chipset. Gionee have ripped out the previously installed 1.7Ghz octacore MT6592 and replaced it with the MSM8928 quad-core running at 1.6Ghz.

While they were at it Gionee upped the screen resolution to 1080p with a Samsung panel, and increased the battery size to 2450mAh. The battery update has meant the S5.5L had to put on some weight though and now measures in at 5.75mm.

The rest of the specs remain largely unchanged with 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel Sony main camera and wide-angle 5 mega-pixel front. The S5.5 was currently only officially launched in China and India, the LTE version should see action in other countries also.
