Gionee will soon launch its 8 bezel-less smartphones on November 26 in China which are the Gionee M7 Plus, F6L, F205, S11, S11 Plus, Steel 3 and M2018. Besides this information, there is no other information available about the specs and features of any of these smartphones. But now, a Gionee smartphone with model number GN5006L has been recently spotted on Chinese website TENAA. Even though nothing is confirmed but it is said that this might be the Gionee Steel 3 device that the company will be launching on November 26.
The images and specs of the smartphone are listed on TENAA. The image of the Gionee GN5006L reveals that the device will have narrow bezels which means that it is not a bezel-less phone. There is no physical home screen button in the image but there is a Gionee branding in the bottom of the phone. Talking about its specs, the Gionee GN5006L is listed to come with a 5.5 inch HD+ display that comes with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. Going by the looks of the device in the image, the device features an elongated display with screen aspect ratio of 18:9.
The device is powered by an Octa-Core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. Though the name off the chipset has not been mentioned, it is said that it could be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC. The listing of the Gionee GN5006L on TENAA suggests that the device will be available in two variants. The basic one would come with a 2GB of RAM and 16Gb of internal storage while the higher end version would come with a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. As the phone has been equipped with a microSD card, it means that the device can be further expanded for more memory space.
The handset is expected to bag a 4,000mAh battery and is said to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS out of the box. In the camera front, the TENAA listing reveals that the Gionee GN5006L would come with a 8MP rear camera with LED flash along with a 8MP camera in the front as well for selfies. The alleged Gionee Steel 3 will mostly be available in three color options of Black, Gold and Blue.
