Gionee’s Elife S7 might not be the most popular phone around, but the device has a lot going for it. For one, it is built like a tank (in the literal sense).
The acclaim might have prompted Gionee to make a smaller version of the phone. Gionee, in the past, have been known to announce phones with distinct designs for the same model number, with ‘mini’ being the differentiating factor. The Elife E7 mini, a phone with a rotating camera, is one such phone (smaller sibling to the full sized E7).
The new GN9007 that leaked via TENAA appears to have (wait for it) a little Doogee in its design. Take a look for yourself.
From the leaked images, I can tell that the GN9007 has curved glass on the front and rear. The Elife S7 has glass on both sides too, the difference is only in the fact that it isn’t the curved variety. White and Black color variants of the Gionee GN9007 are reported.
It’ll be powered by a 1.3GHz processor (MT6753? The Elife S7 has the MT6752), and will reportedly offer a microSD slot (hybrid SIM tray most likely) with a camera combo of a 13 mega-pixel rear and an 8 mega-pixel front. The octa-core processor is expected to come with 2GB of RAM to boot.
It’ll also have a rather slender 144.9×69.8×6 mm body. Gionee’s passion for making beautifully slim phones seems to be going nowhere for now, and we aren’t complaining.
