If you thought Gionee’s Elife S5.5 smartphone was the thinnest possible, wait until you see the company’s upcoming GN9005. As per the information revealed from Chinese regulator TENAA’s website, the GN9005 will just be 5mm thick, thus pipping the S5.5 by 0.5mm.
Like Elife S5.5, this upcoming Gionee smartphone will also not be the most powerful and will feature a 4.8-inch 720p HD display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 2050 mAh battery. In addition, the phone will reportedly come with 16GB of internal storage, 4G support, 8MP rear camera, and 5MP front camera.
On the looks front, as you can see the smartphone seeks resemblance to Elife S5.5 but Gionee seems to have made quite a few improvements. Despite such little thickness, there is no camera hump on back. The company has also replaced the sharp edges present in S5.5 with round ones.
There is no word on the launch date or pricing right now but as is visible in the product images, the phone is expected to be released on telecom operator China Mobile. We hope to get more details in the coming weeks, till then check out the alleged specifications of the phone.
