Chinese smartphone maker Gionee today announced three new S-series smartphones today, with the most impressive of the trio being the S10. What sets the Gionee S10 apart from most of its rivals is that it features a dual-camera setup both at the rear as well as the front. That’s right, the S10 comes equipped with a total of four cameras.
The Gionee S10 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD LTPS IPS display with 2.5D curved glass on top and a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch. Powering the S10 is MediaTek’s Helio P25 octa-core chip clocked at 2.5 GHz, along with the Mali-T880 GPU. Complementing the octa-core chipset is 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of internal memory. Like a number of new smartphones, the Gionee S10 too comes with a Hybrid Dual SIM slot, which means you can expand the storage further only if you can live with just a single SIM card in the phone.
Now let’s talk about the four camera on the Gionee S10. The dual-camera setup at the back uses a 16MP main sensor and an 8MP secondary sensor laid out next to each other in a horizontal layout. The dual-LED flash is integrated in the antenna strip, just like the two cameras at the back. On the front, the S10 features a 20MP main sensor paired with an 8MP secondary camera. The fingerprint scanner on the S10 is also placed on the front, embedded inside the physical home button.
Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 ac dual-band, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, and 4G VoLTE. The smartphone packs a 3450mAh capacity battery inside, which isn’t that bad for a mid-range smartphone. It measures 155 x 76.78 x 7.35mm and weighs in at 178 grams. In terms of software, Gionee S10 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS with the manufacturer’s Amigo 4.0 OS running on top.
The Gionee S10 has been priced at 2599 yuan ($378) in China and comes in four color options – Cherry Gold, Dark Black, Indigo Blue and Primrose Green.
