Gionee Philippines has launched the Gionee Elife E7 Mini in the Philippines, a smaller version of the Elife E7 which is powered by a 1.7 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor and a rotating 13-megapixel camera. The Gionee Elife E7 Mini has a 4.7-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) IPS display, with dual Sim and 1GB of RAM.
The swivel camera sits above the display, joining the top edge of the phone. It also houses the earpiece. The swivel can be easily twisted to bring the camera lens to the front. However, you’ll need to rotate it back the opposite way as it doesn’t move 360-degree.
Gionee claims that it has tested the swivel for several thousand rotations. In our use, we never had problems with it and rotation was pretty smooth. Still, it remains to be seen how it will stand the test of time and wear and tear.The swivel lets one use the 13MP lens as the rear camera as well as the front one.
