The 5" Gionee S5.1 Pro was announced two months ago with a 5" 720p AMOLED screen and MT6753 chipset. It is going to hit the shelves later this month, but now Gionee is introducing a bigger flavor to keep it company on those shelves.
Gionee Elife S Plus is a bigger version of the S5.1 Pro with a 5.5" 720p AMOLED display (with Gorilla Glass 3) and the same MT6753 chipset with an octa-core 1.3GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Matli-T720 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
The rest of the specs include a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP selfie shooter, 16GB expandable storage, LTE connectivity with dual-SIM, and a 3,150 mAh battery. The spreading USB Type-C port also appears on the Elife S Plus.
The Elife S Plus is running on Android Lollipop with Gionee's latest Amigo launcher on top. It will feature Face Unlock option and something called Immersive Touch.
The Gionee Elife S Plus is launching in India this month for INR 16,999 or about $260.

The company is not a subdivision of Blu. It is Blu that takes all those Chinese phones and rebrands them as their own, in including Gionnee smartphones. Not that there is anything bad about that though
This company has to be a sub division of Blu cause all their phones are too similarly made.
$260? China clones phones that use the exact same processor (6753) and similar specs lol for $100. ... for the price it looks okay, it's the processor i'm worried about because it's a pretty weak one..
