Gionee unveiled the narrowest 5.5″ phone yet – just 74.9mm wide. The Gionee S8 is one of the latest from Gionee. Most of the newly launched phones are targeting a 4gb ram and a fingerprint sensor. E.g Elephone P9000.

The Gionee S8 features a “loop” full-metal design. “Loop” here means that the antenna runs around the side of the phone. Unlike the LG G5, the S8 has traditional antenna lines, but they are painted to perfectly match the rest of the body.

The AMOLED screen has 1080p resolution and is covered with 2.5D glass. It has 3D touch too, recognizing three levels – Touch (selects), Tap (previews) and Press (opens)

The Gionee S8 is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 chipset (octa-core CPU) with a healthy dose of memory – 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. The 3,000mAh can be fast charged at 18W (9V, 2A).

The phone will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow at launch and has a fingerprint reader on its Home key. Initially, the custom Amigo 3.2 skin will be used (Gionee’s own take on Android), but the 4.0 update will come out in June.

The company has brokered an interesting, unique feature with WhatsApp (the popular chat app). The S8 can log into two WhatsApp accounts, so you can keep personal and work communications separate.

Also in terms of communications, the S8 is a dual-SIM phone with LTE and VoLTE.

The Gionee S8 will launch at the end of March for €450.
