The Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Gionee has officially unveiled its latest flagship device called Gionee S10. Gionee has been teasing this device from the last few weeks with the front and back dual cameras. Today, we got the complete details including the specification, pricing, and availability of the device. It sports the high-end specifications and comes with a metal built unibody design. The Gionee S10 costs just 2599 Yuan (approx $380 / Rs. 24,400), and sales begin from June 9th. It will be available in Sakura Gold, Dark Black, Indigo Blue, and Primrose Green color options.
The Gionee S10 features a 2.5D curved glass on the front and comes with a physical home button. Just like the iPhone 7 Plus, the rear camera setup on the rear protrudes out from the base. There is also a circular Gionee logo on the rear which looks like a fingerprint sensor. However, the fingerprint sensor is integrated into the physical home button that can be used for payments through AliPay and WeChat. There are two capacitive navigation buttons for back and multitasking. It also supports dual SIM dual standby and offers VoLTE connectivity.
It sports a 5.5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Unlike the other high-end Chinese devices, the Gionee S10 sports an IPS panel instead of AMOLED panel. Under the hood is the 64-bit MediaTek Helio P25 octa-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz. It comes coupled with Mali-T880 MP2 GPU to look after the graphical performance and multitasking. There is 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage on this device. The Gionee S10 also feature hardware level encryption that can make the data and payment more secure.
The device comes equipped with a 16MP + 8MP dual camera setup on the rear with LED flash, f/1.8 aperture. There is also 20MP + 8MP dual camera setup on the front with soft LED flash. It is backed by a 3,450mAh non-removable battery that is mentioned to give 40 hours of talk time and lasts up to 726 hours on standby mode. It runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat based Amigo 4.0 UI. Apart from the highly customized UI, the devices also pack several bloatware apps which further decreases the storage on this device.
Connectivity options include 4G+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, USB OTG, 3.5mm Audio port, and a USB Type-C port. The Gionee S10 measures 155 x 76.78 x 7.35 mm and weighs 178 grams. The company is also providing a free back case and a protective film for free with every purchase. Much like any other Chinese launch, there is no information about the availability of the Gionee S10 outside of China.
