Gionee S8 leaks, reveals new ‘modernised’ Gionee logo


Gionee makes a lot of phones every year, many of which land in various markets worldwide through its OEM partners.

However, in the last year-year and a half, we’ve seen Gionee focus on building a market for its own brand.

The Chinese hardware giant seems to be working on a new phone — and a new logo. The new phone, i.e., the Gionee S8, is expected to feature a MediaTek Helio P10 processor (as seen on the new Elephone P9000) along with some other impressive specs. Let’s take a look.

The Gionee S8, besides the aforementioned processor, is expected to have a 4GB of RAM, 64GB on-board storage, and an all metal body. Apart from that, this work-in-progress device will have a fingerprint sensor on the rear and a USB Type-C port.

Gionee’s camera game is usually strong, and it is expected to be that way on the S8 as well… with a 16 mega-pixel rear camera and an 8 mega-pixel front.

It isn’t clear as to when this phone will launch, but an MWC 2016 launch can’t be ruled out.

Meanwhile, take a look at the leaked images of the phone… do take note of the new modernised Gionee logo on the back of it, as well.

        Blu and Gionee are partners they sell Gionee phones usually 3-6 months after Gionee launches them.

            Gionee has a consortium of about a dozen companies, Blu and Allview are two of them. They split the costs for development and Gionee produces them. On most models Gionee has exclusive rights to them for a set period of time before the sub-brands get access to them. Blu uses a few other OEM’s as well as Gionee but the majority of their phones come from Gionee. Some past Blu/Gionee models:

            Blu Vivo Air – Gionee S5.1
            Blu Vivo – Gionee S5.5
            Blu Vivo 5 – Gionee S7
            Blu Pure XL – Gionee E8
            Blu Studio Energy – Gionee Marathon

              Always happy to share my knowledge of this industry. Chinese phones are my passion. This is the place I come to get away from life for a bit. Some guys drink, I buy phones lol (and drink lol).

              loooooooooooooooool chinese phones are a recent passion of mine as well, if i had the cash id actually collect some, i like to see what each and every oem has to offer lol ive even spent a whole day looking at all the brands off of devicespecification.com

              its kinda strange though, i find myself even wanting lower quality phones like the homtom ht7 .. i have a problem then i subscribe to all these youtube channels to get my fix on what new phones are being relased in africa e.g infinnix zero 3 china india etc

              by the way got any knowledge on wifi frequencies im a bit ignorant as to why 5ghz is so well praised then i saw the mi5 going 6hz in leaks

              They are the same exact phone with the only difference being the LTE bands.

              Hi Balco!! Thanks for your suggestion a year ago regarding BLU pure XL. I brought from US & using in India. Since last 2 months, the mobile randomly turn down. I’m unable to figure out the reason, even i factory reset it but still problem persists.
              Have you came around these kind of issue in BLU or other devices.
              Suggest a solution if u know.

              Could be any number of things that could cause that. Your best bet is to find a local repair shop to take it to.

    They say their camera plan on this will blow out the window. Hopefully it does. What I really would like to see is their Elife E9 as there is lots to improve in the E8 even if it is a great device that GizChina did not came through to review.
