Gionee Philippines introduced to the public the  ELIFE S5.5, the company’s newest smartphone offering in the Philippines, at the SM City North EDSA Cyberzone on Saturday.

The world’s slimmest smartphone to date, the 5-inch device is only 5.5mm-thin and sports a metal build protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance, giving it a durable construction and decreased visible scratches.

The Android-powered handset also promises strength and speed with its 1.7GHz processor and octa-core chipset—a feature only limited to bulky laptops before. This processing power should allow playing HD movies while using high-end apps simultaneously without any lags.

For the pleasure of  mobile phone photography enthusiasts, the  ELIFE S5.5 boasts a 13MP rear camera with Autofocus and LED flash to capture superb quality images and videos.  The 5MP front camera features a 95-degree ultra-wide angle, capturing more people and scenes in a selfie.
