Gionee Elife S7 to be unveiled during MWC 2015, won’t be ultra-slim

By February 11th, 2015 AT 6:50 PM

It has been quote a long time since Gionee released a high-end smartphone. The last high-end smartphone from the company was the Elife E7, which received very little attention from when it came to software updates. Now, Gionee is sending out press invitations for its keynote event which is to be held during MWC 2015, where it is expected to officially unveil its next smartphone, the Gionee Elife S7.

As per the company’s press release about the event, the company no longer wants to pursue in releasing the slimmest smartphone in the world, in spite of being a part of its Elife S lineup of smartphones, which are known for being one of the slimmest smartphones in the world. The company wants to prioritise on device performance as per Oliver Sha, the head of global marketing at Gionee. The press release also mentions about building new smartphones which are slim enough but also focus on performance as well as a superior use experience, be it technology, design, or usability.

The race to make the slimmest smartphone was getting out of hand. Going so slim is actually not benefiting user experience without the performance to back it up.

Since the entry of brands like Motorola, Xiaomi, Asus, and OnePlus, Gionee’s popularity has tanked in India, mainly due to the company’s ignorance towards online marketing and a proper sales model through online channels, as well as its bad software quality and lack of software updates. It would be interesting to see if the company has any plans to improve upon its shortcomings, especially in the software department.
