Gionee P8W with 5″ HD Display & 8MP Camera to Launch Soon in India



Earlier this year, the Chinese smartphone company, Gionee teased the launch of a new smartphone called Gionee P8 Max as the successor to the 2016 launched Gionee P7 Max. Now, the company will also bring the entry-level smartphone called Gionee P8W. It will be the successor to Gionee P5W that was launched here in India in December 2015. As seen with the other entry-level smartphones, the Gionee P8W comes with a polycarbonate shell. It has the curved rear edges which the company calls 3D back-arc design that offer a nice grip to hold the device.

On the front of the P8W is a 5-inch IPS display with HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution, this is the same display we have seen on the Gionee P5W. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz and coupled with Mali T780 GPU. There is 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage that can be additionally expanded upto 128GB. Compared to P5W, the P8W pack upgraded camera sensors, there is an 8MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP fixed focus front camera for selfies. It runs on the in-house Amigo 3.5 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

As seen with the other Gionee devices, the P8W also includes a lot of bloatware apps which take the available storage further down. The 2,300mAh removable battery on this device might not last more than a day of usage. On the right edge of the device, we can find the volume rocker and the power button. The dual SIM slots and MicroSD card can be found under the removable back cover. Gionee also offers a screen protector and a transparent case for free within in the package. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 3.5 Audio port, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port.

On the bottom edge of the Gionee P8W is the stereo loudspeaker. While the Gionee P5W powered by MT6735 SoC didn’t support 4G LTE connectivity, the P8W at least comes with LTE compatibility. Additionally, we expect it to support VoLTE for using with Jio 4G SIM. Even the Gionee P8 Max also comes with the same 3D back-arc design as on the Gionee P8W. While the P8W sports a 5-inch display, the P8 Max comes with a larger 5.5-inch display but with the same 720p resolution. Both the P8W and P8 Max lacks the fingerprint sensor which can be seen on most of the other budget smartphones.

Compared to P8W, the P8 Max will feature better specifications and also a higher price tag. The sports 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. On the camera front, there is a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP selfie camera. The battery on this device will be bumped up to 3,150mAh capacity. Take these details with a pinch of salt as they are to be made official. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for the official details about the availability and pricing of both the Gionee P8W and P8 Max smartphones.
