Gionee is still something of an under the radar brand to most consumers, but we have been following the company for some time and it always something worth looking at. The brand new Elife E8 is the company's next flagship and as we have come to expect, it comes packed to the proverbial rafters with the best specs available.The company rolled out the Elife E8 at a special press event today and the handset is a looker, carrying a premium aesthetic. The specs are the very best, such as a 6-inch Quad HD AMOLED display with a 490ppi (impressive for such a large panel). Indeed at 6-inches, the Elife E8 is arguably better equipped to make the most of the Quad HD resolution that smaller handsets. Other specs include a MediaTek quad-core Helio X10 chip (clocked at 2GHz), 3GB of RAM, 64GB of on board storage, and a micro SD card slot. High end specs indeed, and the jaw dropping hardware continues with the cameras. The Elife E8 packs a whopping 23.7 megapixel lens, which in terms of megapixels puts it only behind the Nokia 808 PureView and Lumia 1020. Sure, Megapixels are not everything and we imagine that there are better shooters out there, but the E8 is impressive nonetheless. Gionee is really focusing on this lens though, and as well as being able to take images of 100 megapixel resolution, the snapper also comes with quick phase detection autofocus, True Tone LED flash, 4K video recording, lossless zoom (a first for Android), and OIS. The lens has been coated in sapphire glass shielded six element glass. Impressive stuff indeed, but you will pay for what you get (no Asian bargains this time) as the Elife E8 will cost $645 when it launches on July 15th.
