A company called Gionee is on hand at MWC 2014 and it has rolled out a new smartphone that it claims is the thinnest in the world. The device is the Elife S5.5 and it is 5.5 mm thick. The phone was unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2014.
The S5.5 has a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with full HD resolution. It also runs an octa-core 1.7 GHz processor and has a 13MP rear camera. The front camera of the smartphone is a bit special with 5MP resolution and the world's first 95-degree wide-angle lens.
That wide-angle lens means that you can more easily get additional people in your selfie photos. The smartphone has a 2300 mAh internal battery promising long battery life. The company is also showing off its flagship device at MWC 2014 that launched late last year.
That device is the Elife E7 and it has an autofocus 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. The processor it uses is a Snapdragon 8974AC chip running at 2.5GHz. The CTRL V5 LTE is also seen for the first time at the show with dual SIM cards and a 4.7-inch QHD display. It has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. It runs a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU with 1GB of RAM and an 1800mAh internal battery. It runs Android 4.2 for the OS. Presumably, the other two devices run Android too, but that isn’t clear.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
