Gionee W909 clamshell to officially debut on March 29, fingerprint sensor in tow

The Gionee W909 is the company’s upcoming clamshell phone, which we’ve been expecting to come out since January, when benchmarks of the devices surfaced. The wait will soon be over as Gionee has sent out press invites for the phone’s unveiling on March 29.

The Gionee W909 will feature a MediaTek’s Helio P10 chipset, also known as MT6755. This 64-bit SoC features a 2 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and the Mali-T860 GPU. In the W909 it’s paired with a whopping 4GB of RAM.

A neat feature of the phone will be its fingerprint sensor. The rest of the alleged specifications include dual displays of HD resolution, 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot.

At the back, there’s a 16MP camera coupled with a 5MP at the front. The phone measures 124.6 x 62.5 x 16.4 mm and weighs around 210 grams.

The W909 is expected to be priced at $615 (CNY 4,000), but whether it’ll retail outside China isn’t clear yet.
