Smartphone maker Gionee is getting ready to disrupt the smartphone market by launching not just one or two smartphones but eight of them simultaneously this November. The company has confirmed, through an invite on Weibo, that it will be launching eight bezel-less smartphones on November 26. The event is scheduled to take place in Schenzen, China.
The invite for the launch of the new smartphones shows eight smartphones that vary design-wise; however, all of them feature one thing in common – bezel-less displays. The Gionee invite also says that the launch event will be streamed live on Shenzhen Satellite TV in China.
The Gionee invite doesn’t reveal much about the new models that will be launched, but a report by Android Headlines says that the new bezel-less smartphones that will be launched will be the Gionee F6, Gionee M2018, Gionee S11 and S11 Plus, and the Gionee M7 Plus. The top-end variants are likely to be the Gionee M7 Plus and the Gionee M2018, with both featuring leather back panels and up to 6GB of RAM. The two phones are also tipped to come with 64GB of inbuilt storage.
The Gionee S11, meanwhile, will apparently feature a 6-inch full-HD+ display as well as a MediaTek MT6763 chipset and an octa-core processor.
It is highly likely that the new Gionee smartphones will feature 18:9 aspect ratios to brighten up their bezel-less displays. Further, the hardware on these new Gionee phones should also be compatible with the current crop of apps that support and function on smartphones with bezel-less displays launched by Samsung, Xiaomi, and Oppo, among others. The new handsets are further tipped to run on Gionee’s proprietary Amigo skin based on Android Nougat.
Pricing and availability details of the new bezel-less Gionee smartphones should emerge in the days to follow. Gionee will almost certainly bring some of the new devices the Indian market.
