Asian tech firm, Gionee, has launched the W909 clamshell Android smartphone with impressive high-end features in China.

The smartphone is already up for pre-order in the country for a price of CNY 3,999 (that’s roughly 123,000 Naira). Gionee however is yet to release its availability details outside China.

The Gionee W909 has a metal body build and is arguably one of the first flip phones in the market to come with a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, and dual touchscreens as well.

It measures 124.1×62.8×16.5mm, weighs 207 grams, and features a fingerprint sensor at the back which can unlock the handset in 0.38 seconds, according to the firm.

The Gionee W909 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and supports dual-SIM functionality. It comes bearing two 4.2-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) resolution IPS screens, with the outer display featuring a 2.5D glass. An octa-core MediaTek MT6755M processor powers the phone with the support of 4GB LPDDR3 RAM.


The smartphone bears 64GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded via microSD card up to 128GB if more space is needed.

There’s a 16-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and LED flash, and a 5 megapixel front-facing camera is also available for taking selfies.

Gionee’s new flip phone supports 4G LTE networks, along with Bluetooth v4.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, and USB Type-C connectivity.

The Gionee W909 is backed by a 2530mAh battery, which Gionee said can deliver up to 29.7 hours of talk time and 408 hours of standby time.

Besides having an on-screen keyboard, the Gionee W909 also has a T9 keypad with physical buttons to navigate, launch the camera and more. It is only available in Rose Gold colour variant.

The last flip phone by a popular tech brand was seen by Samsung in November last year-  the W2016 smartphone. LG also launched the Wine Smart flip phone last year but it sports less-powerful specifications.
