Gionee W919 was earlier spotted on TENAA and it further confirmed that the Chinese handset maker was gearing up to bring a new device to the market. While Gionee might be getting closer to launching the new smartphone, the device has been leaked online yet again. Well, fresh renders of the smartphone have appeared and they show the device from all angles. Thus we now have a fair idea of how the device looks and what features it will likely bring.

It is worth mentioning that this new smartphone is an Android-powered flip phone. So Gionee W919 is basically bringing back the long forgotten form factor of clamshell phones. Though touchscreen smartphones have nearly taken over the market it seems some consumers still fancy such design. Even Samsung has launched W2018 which is a flip-phone but it is available only in select markets.

Having said that, Gionee might be heading in the same direction and the company might be trying to attract a particular set of consumers and at the same time differentiating itself from the rest of the brands.

In any case, talking about the leaked renders, as you can see from the image the phone has a flip form factor and it looks quite appealing. The company should be using high-quality materials to build the device. When the phone is flipped open it reveals the internal display and the traditional T9 physical keypad. However, it has also been said that the handset will come with two displays.

 

So when device remains closed, there is another screen on top. Both the displays are rumored to measure 4.2-inches diagonally and sport a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The design of the display looks a bit weird though. The power button and the volume rockers are placed on either side of the device. At there rear the company is employing leather on the back panel and there is a single camera setup as well. The fingerprint scanner sits below the camera. And that is pretty much that we can make out from the renders.

Meanwhile, previous leaks have suggested that Gionee W919 will likely be powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz which should be further coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. As for the optics, the handset will probably feature 16MP snapper on the back and a 5MP snapper on the front. Other leaked specs include 3000mAh battery, Android 7.0 Nougat, and the device is said to measure 128 x 62.7 x 16.2 mm and weigh in around 230 grams.

As for the launch, reports state that the company could launch the said device very soon. But the chances of this phone coming to the international market seem pretty slim.
