If you thought clamshell phones were a thing of the past (or Japan), then, well, think again.
Gionee is set to launch the pricey Gionee W909 in the coming weeks. With the price comes style, and a decent grunt of power; let’s take a look.
Gizchina News of the week
The clamshell design means that the W909 isn’t going to be at par with what sells these days, i.e., 5.5-inch screen phones. That said, where the phone will have an edge over its modern-day competitors isn’t screen size, but the sheer number of screens, one on the outside in addition to the ‘regular’ screen.
Besides, it’ll have a Helio P10 MediaTek MT6755 processor, 4GB of RAM, 16 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front facing camera, 32GB on-board storage, and dimensions of 124.6 x 62.5 x 16.4 mm.
Coming to the price, the W909 is expected to sell at an equivalent of $615 in China, with slim chances of the phone making it to markets overseas.
