Chinese manufacturer Gionee seems to be prepping the launch of a new flagship according to a listing on TENAA, which is China’s equivalent of the FCC. The smartphone will be reportedly known as the Elife E8, succeeding the Elife E7.
It is said that the handset will sport a 6 inch 2K resolution display, which means it’s the same size as the Nexus 6. Other rumored specs of the smartphone include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 2 GHz octa core SoC with no mention of the make. The smartphone is also expected to be packing an 8-megapixel front facing camera, with no concrete information on the rear sensor as of yet.
Interestingly, the smartphone appears to be sporting a fingerprint scanner on the back, which is an interesting addition. This has all the makings of a flagship product, so expect Gionee to unveil the device over the coming weeks. Don’t be surprised if the smartphone remains an exclusive to the Chinese markets though, as we’ve seen that happen in the past before.
