    What is known about the Gionee Elife S7 is that it measures in at 5.5mm in terms of thickness. Basically the Elife S7 is a legitimate successor to the Elife S5.5 and S5.1. In the past few days we've seen the launch of the Oppo R5, and Vivo X5 Max, each with a focus on the slim design. Today's launch is similar, with the phone focusing on the slimness factor.

    Under the hood, the Gionee Elife S7 features MediaTek's octa-core processor, which comes paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB of native storage. Of course, the Elife S7 will ship running Google's Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system with Gionee's Amigo 3.0 UI on top.
