Romanian vendor leaks Elife E8 specs ahead of official Gionee launch


The Gionee Elife E8 launch is taking place as you read this, but it appears as though one of the many vendors that Gionee works with for the Western markets couldn’t wait to reveal the specs.

Gionee’s partner for European markets, i.e., Allview released the specifications of its X2 Xtreme moments back. The phone comes with a 6-inch display with a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and is powered by the popular MediaTek MT6795 (aka Helio X10) processor that is starting to feature in many flagship phones.

There’s 3GB of RAM to boot with the 64-bit octa-core processor. As always, Allview (Gionee) has emphasized the camera department, which in this case includes a 24 mega-pixel sensor on the rear (with 4K video) along with an 8 mega-pixel front facing camera.

Right below the said 24 mega-pixel camera sits a fingerprint sensor, which you can expect to see on almost every mid-range and high-end Chinese phone this year. Apart from that, the X2 Xtreme has a 3500mAh battery, a 64GB of on-board storage and a price tag of an equivalent of US$550 for the Romanian market. The phone will start selling the country 15th August onward.

If you’re expecting some more fireworks from Gionee for the Elife E8 launch, stay tuned.

    It also has a cam button , if anyone still cares about that anymore.That price includes 24% VAT so would be 449$ without. We’ll see how Gionee prices it.
    164 x 82x 9.6 mm , 204 grams so a bit tall.

    Allview=bloatware, higher price than Gionee, 0 support, no RMA, good marketing… This comes from a romanian, so stay away from this brand, buy directly from Gionee if you find the phone interesting!

            cand allview spune cu mandrie specific autohtona “primul telefon romanesc” si el este Gionee toata ziua, cum vi se pare?
            sau cand un coleg si-a trimis tel la ei la service si l-au taxat de isi lua altul nou de acelasi model, in pretul reparatiei? astia-s sugacii prietene !

            mai bine cumpar direct de la sursa..

              Daca ai vedea ai constata ca e mai scump la sursa cu 50 de dolari ;).. fara garantie 😉 Plus de asta de la sursa trebuie sa platesti tva si taxa vamala.. asa ca ajunge sa fie cu 100 – 150 de dolari mai scump de la sursa.. cel putin in momentul actual.

              si porcaria de soft de la allview?
              frate ma doare in pl ca allview e gionne, dar sa fim seriosi… softul de la gionee e de 50 de ori mai fain. m-am uitat si am comparat… dc nu pastreaza acel soft de gionee?

              Uite ca eu nu consider ca e porcarie de soft. Probabil e porcarie de soft in capu’ tau.

    This hasn’t leaked anything that we didn’t already know apart from a higher than I hoped for price tag. We still don’t know what aperture the camera uses and if the phone has a decent hifi chip for the stereo speakers or when it will be released exactly as the Romanian version is due to go on sale for over 2 months from now! Hoping the Gionee version will be available almost immediately.

      The Gionee version should be cheaper.

      The Gionee is 3999CNY(645$) so a lot more than this one (449$ without VAT).
      As for availability for the Gionee, July 15.
