It has been over three months since the Gionee W919 was seen on TENAA. When it passed through the certification site, we presumed it was going to launch soon as a rival to Samsung’s W2018 clamshell flagship but it didn’t. There is still no announcement with respect to when it will launch but new live photos have been seen online.
The Gionee W919 is a flagship flip phone based on its design and specs. Gionee has settled for a mix of glass, metal and leather with gold accents on the inside and out.
The pictures show the phone flipped open and closed, giving us a look at the two displays. Like the flip phones of old, the Gionee W919 has an alphanumeric keypad.
The Gionee W919 packs dual 4.2” HD displays, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. It is powered by a 2.5GHz octa-core processor that draws power from a 3000mAh battery. It also has a 16MP rear camera with a fingerprint scanner below it and a 5MP front facing camera.
Gionee has not announced any new phone this year and there are rumors that the manufacturer is facing financial troubles. Its last main event was last November, where it unveiled 8 new phones at once.
