Gionee rumored to be working on their own 18:9 display smartphone


It seems that soon Gionee will climb aboard the bezel-less 18:9 display “train” like most manufacturers do during the past year. As the latest leaks suggest, the company is working on a new mystery phone with model number SW17W08, that appeared earlier on GFXBench database.

According to the listing, the upcoming device sports a 6-inch 1,440×720 18:9 touchscreen, runs Android 7.0 Nougat, and is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P25 chipset, boasting a 2.6 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and a Mali-T880 GPU. It also offers 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while both front and back cameras are said to be 5 MP – but the main camera should be larger – I guess this is a mistake on the benchmark and I’ll explain why below:

All of the above suggest we have a new mid range model coming our way, but still there are rumors suggesting that this model will be equipped with a dual camera setup, like in the Gionee A1 Plus model – which has a 13 MP and a 5 MP sensor on the back – and the benchmark is only seeing the latter.

That’s all for now, we will let you know the moment we have more info on this new device.
