According to the company, Elife S7 is a well blended combination of style and substance. It had caught some attention for its 5.5mm thickness a while ago. Powering the phone is a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.7GHz processor. The phone has a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED Full HD (1920 x 1080) display, 13-megapixel rear and an 8-megapixel front camera.
It is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on both the sides and is available in 3 colours blue, black and white. Further, major improvements have been made for ‘Mobile Photography’ such as adaptive Focus and a 8 MP front camera.
The phone also carries a 2750 mAh battery which is claimed to last an entire day, and comes with a new power saver mode on which the screen goes Black and White allowing limited access to features in order to save more battery.
