Gionee Elife S7 in India launched for Rs 24,999

Gionee Elife S7 in India launched today at an event in HICC Hyderabad. The smartphone was first announced at MWC 2015 in Barcelona.


The Gionee Elife S7 in India is priced at Rs 24,999 and will come in Black, White and Blue colour variants. It will be available across retail stores in India soon. The Gionee Elife S7 is made out of aviation grade aluminium magnesium alloy with full metal skeleton design. It is not the company’s slimmest phone but nonetheless it is ultra slim at 5.5 mm. Both the front and the back of the phone is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This creates a combination of hardness and softness which would provide maximum protection. We will soon post our first hands-on impression of the device.

On this occasion, William Lu, President of Gionee said,

“We believe ELIFE S7 will evolve the future of slim smartphones to the next level which will pack a perfect mix of looks and exceptional performance. Putting in effort to make slimmer phones and compromising on performance will eventually be futile. We are focusing on bringing a new dimension of user experience and offer more features to the consumers.”

Arvind R. Vohra, Country CEO & MD – Gionee India said,

“The ELIFE S5.5 & S5.1 witnessed huge acceptance amongst Indian consumers and we are certain that the S7 will create its own benchmark. Gionee has been setting high standards in various aspects and believes in giving the consumers better than the best. Having sold over 4 million devices in India our smartphones are a manifest of our in-depth R&D, design expertise and manufacturing ability. 2015 Gionee will be expanding its India wing to imitate the manufacturing here in India and we believe this will add a sensational dimension to our profile.”
