Gizchina News of the week
Thanks to the Chinese certification authority, these days we can have a sneak peek at upcoming smartphone designs. And here is how the Gionee GN5006 looks. As is visible from the pics, it sports a thin-bezel design, a texturized back and a single rear camera. It is also clear from the image that the speaker grill is also at the rear. Remarkably, it doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner. This gives us the impression that it might be an entry-level handset.
The TENAA listing also gives away some specs on the phone. As per that info, it sports a 4,000 mAh battery, and 8 MP front and rear shooters. In terms of dimension, the phone is reported to be measuring 144.7 x 69.8 x 8.5mm in size while weight is 170g.
The GN5006 sports a 5.5-inch HD+ (1440 x 720p) display and a 1.4 GHz processor which probably confirms that this is indeed a low-end handset. It is likely to run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with Gionee’s Amigo UI skin. There might be two variant of the device in question. A 2 GB + 16 GB variant and a 3 GB + 32 GB variant.
Industry insiders say the GN5006 is a member of the Gionee Steel 3 family, which also consists of GN5007 and GN5006L. Both these handsets have passed TENAA and the latter bears close resemblance to the Gionee GN5006 on the spec sheet.
