Gionee S10 is the successor the much-rumored S9, released almost a year ago. No official information has been released, and as of now what we know is that the device will be released somewhere along this year, although the price and the specific remains masked to form the general people. The S10 is next in the flagship lineup and as always, we are expecting some significant new upgrades from its predecessor. A few images along with some speculated features were released online, and we are here to bring that information into the limelight for you.
There is one piece of information that has really riled up the masses. The S10 will supposedly be having four cameras, two at the rear and two at the front and will be available in a gold edition. The validity of these claims remains to be tested in the near future.
The S10 will supposedly be launching in the high-mid range segment, though we don’t have any confirmation. Assuming a specific price segment helps us to better judge the price to feature ratio. At this point, everything is a speculation.
The Gionee S10 will be making its debut with a 5.5-inch full HD display and with a pixel density of 401, which is a bit on the low side for a 5.5-inch device but it's not a complete disaster. It seems that Gionee will be implementing a new technology, i.e., the LTPS IPS LCD display with the all new touchwiz, AmigoOS 4.0. The screen will have Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, the standard requirement for contemporary times along with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The S10 sports all the basic features, but the lack of pixel density may result in unsaturated images.
Any performance results cannot be produced since the device is not available yet. All we have are the specifications. The S10 will be powered by an octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM. No information regarding the manifesto of the CPU has been released. The S itself was powered by a MediaTek processor and a Mali T-series GPU, so we can assume that the S10 will also be powered by the similar manufacturer, thought the processing power may be increased.
The S10 will come with 64GB of onboard storage and as of now, no news of any other variants has been released. The memory of the device can be expanded via a hybrid micro SD card. No limit is yet known, so we are assuming the default 128 GB.
After comparing with other devices at this range, both the clock speed of the CPU and the inbuilt storage are decent. 4GB of RAM is pretty average, but when others are offering an extra 2GB, few will choose the S10 over the 6 or maybe its 8 GB competitors.
The S10 having four cameras is still a rumor, and according to official websites, the device is sporting two 13MP shooters at the rear and a 16MP at the front. In the future, Gionee may launch the S10 with four cameras, but for now, we are adhering to the authentic sources rather than dwindling on rumors. However, we are not losing hope and praying that the company does implement all four cameras. The camera will also be able to record 1080p videos at 30fps, which is bit low, given that other devices support 60fps recording. Other than that, the camera supports all the basic functionalities such as touch focus, face detection and geo-tagging, phase detection autofocus and LED flash.
In terms of battery, it is known that the S10 will have a non-removable battery and no information was released regarding its capacity. However, anything short of 3000 mAh will be virtually non-acceptable.
The S10 supports dual sim along with VoLTE and services. The sim card is a hybrid tray, so you will have to choose between an extra sim and extra storage.
