Gionee Elife E6 launched in India for Rs 22,999

Gionee has launched the Elife E6 smartphone in India at an event in Delhi and it looks to be a very exciting phone in terms of specs. The Chinese company has been making a slow entry into India and the E6 is their latest flagship.

It also comes with a price befitting its status. The E6 has an MOP of Rs 22,999 and is expected to be available from this month onwards. That price is slightly higher than what most Indian buyers expect from a Chinese company, but the specs are right on the money.

The E6 has a 5-inch 1080p display, but the highlight is the sleek design with the phone measuring a mere 6.18mm in thickness. It has a 1.5GHz quad-core MT6589T Cortex-A7 processor with 2GB RAM and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a light UI customisation on top. The smartphone is light too at 128 grams, and comes with a healthy 32GB of internal memory. However, there is no micro SD card slot.

The one problem area for the E6 could be battery life as despite the high-end internals, there’s only a 2020 mAh battery on board. This was no doubt done to reduce to the size of the phone, but could ultimately hamper user experience.

On the back there’s a 13-megapixel camera that employs a Sony Exmor R sensor and has a 5-element lens. There’s a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for high-res selfies. Connectivity wise this comes with Wi-Fi and 3G. GPS and usual bouquet of sensors are also present.

Here’s a quick look at the specifications of the Elife E6:


  • 5-inch 1080p full HD display
  • 3G, Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS support
  • 13MP rear camera with auto-focus, 5MP front-facing camera
  • 32GB internal memory

So what do you think? Has Gionee got all the elements right with the E6? Let us know.
