Ahead of the November 15 expected launch of the Gionee S9, more details and leaks about the flagship device have continued to come out. A recently teased poster has revealed that the Gionee S9 would feature a front soft flash which would aid the selfie camera in churning out crisp clear images. The official poster seems to be a press invite and it indeed confirms that the device would launch on November 15.
The poster also teases the fact that the Gionee S9 would sport dual cameras at the rear capable of outputting images with bokeh effect , in addition to having a fast focus. It must be pointed out that this is Gionee’s first device with dual cameras and it comes in gold and black colors.
In the same vein, real live renders of the S9 have been leaked online showing the black variant of the S9 from both front and back. The renders reveal a lot about the device both physically and also the software angle, as the user interface could be seen on the display. The device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box and that could be noticed to have gotten a little tweaking by Gionee.
The design isn’t bad either, as the device features well chamfered edges which aid holding the device. The volume keys and power button are also seated at the right side if the device. The device also has a physical home button which also double as the fingerprint scanner to unlock the device.
We don’t need to look very far to get the specs of the Gionee S9 as the device had previously made the rounds on TENAA and AnTuTu benchmark revealing the key specs. Accordingly, the S9 sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display with a 2.5D glass on top. The device is powered by a a 2.0GHz MediaTek Helio P10 processor along with 4GB of RAM. There is also a large 64GB of internal storage, a 13MP camera up front, while the rear dual cameras are made of 13MP + 5MP sensors. The device also runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, weighs 166.5g and pack a 3,000mAh battery.
