The Gionee S9, which was released last month in China, could be getting a new Blue color. We have got our hands on a leaked image(above) of the Gionee S9 in Blue and it looks like the real deal. Gionee could announce a Blue variant of the Gionee S9 very soon, but while an exact release date remains unavailable at the moment, you can hope for December release.
The S9 is not really flagship material, but it does come with an impressive set of hardware. It has a 5.5 inch 1080p LCD display, a MediaTek Helio P10 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a 3000mAh battery. The specs are very similar to its predecessor, the S8, except in the camera department.
Gionee has equipped the S9 with dual cameras at the back, a 13MP and another 5MP sensor that help in taking images with depth of field. For the selfie lovers, a 13MP camera takes care of business in the front.
If you were hoping that the S9 will get a software update to Android Nougat, you should give up. It doesn’t like Gionee is going to update the S9 and it will continue to run Android Marshmallow till it has been discontinued. Looks like customers will only be getting a new Blue color.
