Gionee Elife E8 shows off a gold chassis in new renders


Gionee’s iconic Elife range will get a new addition later this year as the flagship Elife E8 goes on sale complete with gold chassis option.

Gionee’s flagship range has been around for a few years now with the most recent models being the Mediatek powered Elife E6 then the Snapdragon packed Elife E7.

Later this year Gionee will launch the Elife E8, seen in Tenaa leaks already, and with it a move back to Taiwanese chip maker Mediatek. Details of the E8 have emerged to induce 3GB RAM, 6-inch 2K display and a camera capable of taking up to 100 mega-pixel photos! A true flagship hardware package!

Earlier Tenaa leaks also showed us a rough idea of the general design of the Gionee Elife E8 with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, but new renders give us a better idea of the sleek metal chassis the phone will be built on.


A good look at the render also shows what appear to be 3 physical buttons on the right of the device. The upper button most likely being the volume rocker, followed by the power button and finally a physical shutter button.

Of all the phones that are set to launch, the Gionee Elife E8 is the one which sits at the top of my waiting list!
