Gionee has formally forayed into the Indian market in early 2013. Earlier it was associated with many Indian mobile brands as an original device manufacturer. This being its second mobile launch in India, while its predecessor, Gionee Elife S5.5 which was then supposed to be world’s slimmest phone was offered at price of Rs. 22,999 but in the month of May against its promised availability in March.
By the way, Gionee’s claims of offering the world’s slimmest phone were broken by Oppo R5 with its thickness of 4.85mm in the month of October 2014. However, in the month of September 2014, Gionee Elife S5.1 entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the thinnest phone across the world.
