Gionee S8s – Full Specifications And Cheapest Price In Nigeria And Kenya


Smartphone manufacturer, Gionee Mobile seems to have come out from their hiatus as they just released a new smartphone called the Gionee S8s.

In this post, we’ll be taking a close look at the full specifications and price of this device.

Gionee S8s is a brand new smartphone in Gionee’s line up, "Notch Fullview Display" is what the company calls it.

The S8s comes with an impressive 5.86-inch display accompanied by 3GB of RAM alongside 32GB of internal storage (expandable via Micro SD).

You also get a dual rear camera setup with a 3000mAh battery to power the device. The best part of the battery is that it supports fast charging which according to Gionee will make the phone charge from 0-100 percent in less than an hour. The pricing isn’t too bad either.

Gionee S8s Design and Display

The design on the Gionee S8s isn’t really bad but there’s nothing too flashy about the device. You get a 5.86-inch display screen with the annoying wide notch cut out at the top where the front-facing camera is placed. I wonder why the notch everyone is abandoning is still being added to a Gionee phone in 2019 though

The display resolution gives you a 1520 x 720 pixels screen resolution with a 19:9 aspect ratio. It still has the chin at the bottom though.


At the back of the device, you get to see the camera at the top left corner supported by an impressive LED flash underneath for better night shots. Like all new smartphones, it still has the fingerprint sensor for security and it’s placed at its usual position at the center. The overall device build is plastic and i’m not surprised considering the price range. It’s not too heavy as the phone just weighs 167.5 grams and measures 8.75mm in thickness .

When buying the device you get to choose between two color options; Matte Black and Gold. It uses two Nano SIM Card slots and another one for the micro SD card slot for expanding the memory

Gionee S8s Operating System

I’m pretty impressed that the phone ships with the Android 9.0 Pie OS as the Operating system. It also has Gionee’s UI customizing the whole user interface so you don’t expect to get a stock Android experience on this phone.

Performance and Hardware

In the performance department powering the phone is handled by a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset which has an Octa-core Processor clocked at 2.0GHz. You also get an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU clocked at 650MHz.

In the memory department, you get 3GB of RAM which would ensure good user experience and better multitasking alongside 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded further using a micro sd card to up to 128GB through the in-built Micro SD card slot.

Gionee S8s Camera

The main camera of the Gionee S8s is a dual camera setup. You get a 13MP main rear camera supported by the usual secondary 5MP camera which acts as a depth sensor and makes it possible to take photos in portrait mode. It also has a dual LED flash to improve pictures taken in low light conditions

Selfie lovers would get a front facing camera with a single 8MP camera that’s enough for all their selfie needs.

Gionee S8s Connectivity and Battery

There is obviously the usual Bluetooth and WIFI adapter among many other sensors. There’s also support for 4G LTE connectivity, GPS and a USB Type-C port with support for USB On The Go (OTG).

Keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh battery which I believe should be able to get you through the day if you aren’t a heavy smartphone user . However, Gionee says it would get you the day "with ease". The battery also has full support for equipped with fast charging and Gionee says it should charge from 0-100 within an hour.
