Gionee Elife E8 snapped in the wild; rear camera produces photos interpolated to 100MP
A little more than a week ago, China's TENAA regulatory agency certified the Gionee Elife E8. The phone's claim to fame is the rear-facing 23MP snapper that allows photos to be "stitched" together to produce a 100MP image. A leaked photo of the device reveals an all-metal phone dressed in gold, with a dedicated camera shutter.
While today's leak says that the screen-size of the device is unknown, the TENAA certification says that the unit features a 4.6-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a record pixel density of 639ppi. A MediaTek MT6795 SoC is under the hood and contains a true octa-core 2GHz CPU and the IMG G6200 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable storage. We have already discussed the 23MP rear snapper, and there is an 8MP camera adorning the front of the unit, ready to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Keeping the power flowing is a 3250mAh battery.
The Elife E8 is 9.6mm thick and earlier reports claim that a fingerprint scanner will be included. The Amigo 3.0 UI, based on Android 5.0, is pre-installed. Pricing and availability are unknown at the moment. Considering that the phone was recently TENAA certified, it shouldn't be too long before it is officially introduced by Gionee.
