Gionee India has announced the KitKat 4.4.2 update for Gionee ELife E7. The firmware will be available on both the 16 GB and 32 GB variants of the device in the form of an OTA update.

Elife S7 is the slimmest phone ever made by the company and it is also one of the thinnest smartphone in the world.

Previously, Gionee had launched the Elife S5.5 with a thickness of 5.5 mm and the Elife S5.1 with 5.1 mm, respectively.

The company aims at expanding its Elife portfolio and had sent out invites for one of the biggest events of the year, Mobile World Congress which is currently being held.

However, the device's specifications have not been revealed, but the invite reads, “witness the Big Moment.”

Speculations are being made that along with a step ahead in terms of sleekness, the phone may feature a larger display too.

The S5.1 runs on Android 4.4 along with a layer of the company’s Amigo 2.0 UI. There is an 8-megapixel camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The device also gets 16GB storage armed with 2,050mAh battery for long lasting usage.
