Gionee at the India launch of Elife E7 also globally unveiled the mini-variant of the smartphone, dubbed Elife E7 Mini, priced at Rs. 18,999.
As of now, the Chinese handset maker has not revealed the availability details of the Elife E7 Mini for the Indian market.
The Gionee Elife E7 Mini runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with the company's custom Amigo 2.0 UI layer on top, much like the elder sibling Gionee Elife E7. The Gionee Elife E7 is a single SIM device, but the mini-variant supports dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) functionality.
It comes with 4.7-inch display (unspecified resolution). The Gionee Elife E7 Mini is powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core processor (unspecified chipset). The highlight of the Elife E7 mini is its 13-megapixel camera which comes with rotating capabilities; something we already saw on Oppo N1 smartphone. The Gionee Elife E7 Mini will be available in two colour variants.
