Gionee’s Elife S8 Flagship Might Beat the Samsung Galaxy S6 at Pixel Density (PPi)

Chinese smartphone maker Gionee attracted attention upon itself when it launched what back then was considered the world’s thinnest smartphone, the S5.5 (it was only 5.6 mm / 0.22 inch thin).

The company currently sits on a lofty portfolio of devices and has received a good response from users, both for hardware and software. Gionee is also in the process of prepping its upcoming flagship, which will probably be dubbed the Elife S8. And now, a new Gionee smartphone has recently been spotted in the GFX Benchmark showing an impressive list of hardware specifications. We’re not 100% sure we’re dealing with the Gionee Elife S8 here, but there's a big chance this is exactly the case, given what this phone packs on the inside.

Gionee Elife S8 could come with an advanced display
The upcoming model appears to sport a relatively small display, of the 4.6-inch variety, with QHD resolution on top (1440 x 2560 pixels). If the benchmark entry is correct, the Gionee Elife S8 will end up boasting one of the most crisp displays on the market with a pixel density of 639ppi. For the time being, the smartphones with the crispest displays on the market are Samsung’s newest darlings, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, both of which boast 577ppi. Gionee might be able to jump in front of Samsung for a while when pixel density is concerned, but the Korean tech giant is said to be working on UHD (2,160 x 3,840 pixel resolution) Super AMOLED displays for mobile devices.

Actually, a recent report claimed Samsung might be looking to use such a panel in the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. If the information turns out to be genuine, the Galaxy Note 5 will make a debut with a 5.89-inch display and a whopping 748ppi, thus surpassing Gionee’s offering. In related news, Sharp recently unveiled the world’s first 5.5-inch mobile display with UHD resolution and an outrageous 806ppi.

So, as you can see, pixel density in mobile devices is on the rise and will continue to ascend throughout the year. The benchmark also sheds light on other specs, including a quad-core MediaTek 6795 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 24MP/8MP camera combo. Sadly, the benchmark listing doesn't say anything about the design of the product, but we have to imagine it will be very sleek.
