After announcing a couple of devices in the Marathon series, Gionee has revealed that it will be present at the world’s greatest tech event, MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2016 to launch the brand new Gionee S8 flagship smartphone. The launch will take place on February 22 at 2 pm in Hall 8, Theater C at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Spain.
Unlike the other smartphones released by the company, the Gionee S8 will pack in high-end specs. The company has revealed two important features of the device. First of all, the S8 will come with a pressure sensitive display, much like the Huawei Mate S and the ZTE Axon Mini. Even the new iPhone 6 models have similar 3D Touch technology, which only proves that we will probably see more phones with this tech in the coming months.
The second feature revealed by the company is “hassle free photo shooting” experience. At this moment, we don’t know what exactly to expect, but hopefully, the company will make things clear in the coming days. To recap, the Elife S7 had a pretty good 13MP rear camera with a number of software options like magic focus mode and professional mode which gives you some great manual controls. So, we can expect the new Gionee S8 to feature even better camera functions.
About six months back, a leaked video had shown off the Gionee S8 in all its glory, but later rumors and leaks about the device died down. While we still don’t know whether the final design will be same as before, the earlier leak had revealed some high-end specs for the device. You can check out that article from here.
We will keep you guys updated with more details about the Gionee S8 in the coming days. So, stay tuned!
