We recently came to know that Gionee was planning to launch a new smartphone in the market which would most likely overthrow the
Vivo X5 Max Ivvi K1 Mini as the thinnest smartphone in the world. The company is reportedly launching the device at one of the world’s top tech events of the year, the MWC 2015.
Now, a Gionee device has hit TENAA, revealing all the key specifications of the device. The Gionee GN-9006 model actually makes things a lot more interesting as if it turns out to be the device that the company will show off at MWC, then fans are definitely going to be disappointed. This is because, Gionee GN-9006 is reportedly coming with a 5.5mm body, which although is very slim, won’t make it the slimmest smartphone in the world. The previous rumors claimed that Gionee S7 will have a 4.6mm body.
While TENAA certifications doesn’t reveal the name of the device, there are certain reasons we believe this could be the one showcased at the event. First of all, the pictures uploaded on the TENAA page looks a lot similar to the ones that were leaked two days back — Gionee S7. Further, the company’s previous flagship super slim device, the Gionee S5.1 had the model number GN-9005, which means this new device directly succeeds the previous one. Also, the leak said that the phone will have a 2700 mAh battery which would be practically impossible to incorporate in a device with just 4.6mm thickness. So, there’s the Gionee S7 is not as thin as we expect.
Other tech specs of the Gionee GN9006 are high end. They are as follows:
- MediaTek MT6752 eight-core 1.7GHz processor
Built-in 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM, NO SD card slot
- 5.2-inch 1080P resolution display
13MP rear camera + 8Mp front camera
Supports 4G LTE networks (China Unicom)
Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS version
Colors: Black, White and Blue
Measurements: 148.8 × 72.4 × 5.5 (mm)
Weight: 126.5 (g)
There’s a very slight possibility that the rumored Gionee S7 with 4.6mm body could be a totally different phone. But we can’t confirm that at the moment and hence, we will have to wait for an official word from the company, which will probably be directly at MWC 2015.
Stay tuned for more updates. [source]
