Gionee Launches New Phone S8 With 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM, Android M, And A New Logo

Gionee have just released a wonder phone named Gionee Elife S8 with crazy specs that will definitely shock you. If you aren't shocked by the 4GB RAM in this phone then you must be bamboozled at the 6GB internal memory on this device. Truly wonders shall never end. We see new devices with crazy specs almost on daily basis so my question is, what type of phones will be available in the next 3 years?

This phone was unveiled at the ongoing MWC 2016 and as usual, this Gionee S8 comes with the MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 processor. Also expected in the phone, like other gionee S-series phones was a metal body. Gionee, however, as a smartphone brand is known for reliability and long lasting devices and have so far produced some outstanding devices including the Gionee M5 which is currently a hot cake in the market right now. The only problem Gionee is facing in Africa is lack of well organized marketing strategy. Once they get it right, they will definitely top in the business.

It has a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p AMOLED screen display size.
A huge 4GB RAM, and 64GB on-board ROM that is more than enough to store all your data and files. The camera is cool with a 16 mega-pixel PDAF-enlabed rear camera which has features like (RWB sensor, f/1.8 aperture & laser focus), and an 8 mega-pixel front facing camera that automatically makes writes the name of this phone among top selfie taking smartphones in the world. It has a HiFi DTS sound and a 3000mAh battery capacity. The S8 Smartphone measures 154.3 x 74.9 x 7mm.

The phone has worldwide 4G LTE support and has b1 and b17 bands. Another amazing feature which is very hard to find in other smartphones is support for 3D touch, a.k.a. pressure-sensitive touch. Not done yet, the S8 phone is going to be shipped with what Gionee termed ‘innovative’ side bar. Users can just trigger the side bar by tapping the sides of the display screen.

What made the launching event more spectacular is the unveiling of new official Gionee logo which depicts smile

According to pres release;

“The smiling face on new logo shows our desire to create happiness by developing built-in user-friendly technology and easy-to-use communication tools,” said William Lu, President of Gionee. “By adding emotional elements to our smartphones, we believe our ‘smilephones’ will allow us to maintain a place in the hearts of our consumers and gain a stronger position in the industry.”

The new beautiful logo integrates the alphabets “i” and “j” to form a “G” which represents Gionee and stylishly sends out the message, “I am joyful”. The lighted orange color means an energetic, passionate and warm image.

Anyway, the price and availability of Gionee S8 is not yet made official but will be available soon. Keep tuned as i will keep you updated with the latest developments.
