Romania’s Allview set stage for Gionee Elife E8 unveiling
The air is thick in recent weeks of talk about the much-awaited coming of the Gionee Elife E8. Fans of this Chinese smartphone maker had the past couple of years to really get to know and like the Elife series through the Elife E7, which leaves little wonder why its followers are itching to get their hands on its successor. Earlier today this successor was officially announced. The unveiled product, however, didn’t sport the name Gionee Elife E8 and the venue was Romania.
Allview, a new company in Romania that is into rebranding of Gionee devices, introduced the X2 Xtreme. This 6-inch QHD phablet is the Gionee Elife E8 alright, but its Romanian version.
Rebranded or otherwise, its specs worth bragging remain. Thickness is at 9.6 mm while the spacious display boasts a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 on energy-saving AMOLED technology. Beneath the obvious aesthetics, there’s a 64-bit MediaTek MT6795 SoC chipset providing advanced circuitry to its 2 GHz CPU, IMG G620 GPU and 3GB RAM, which makes using the Gionee Elife E8/Allview X2 Xtreme an exercise in speed and stability. Enjoy taking 8MP selfies with the front cam and take more high quality 23MP pics and 4K videos using the rear one. The device is huge also in storage with 64GB built in and the option to save stuff in microSD cards via a 128GB-capacity slot. It’s LTE-capable and gets power from a mammoth 3500 mAh battery.
Allview’s Romanian version of the Gionee Elife E8 comes pre-installed with the Lollipop OS and will have a price tag of around $550 once it’s out in the market. We’ll keep a close eye on further developments and keep you posted.
