Meet the world's first smartphone with two 1080p displays: Gionee W900

Meet the world's first smartphone with two 1080p displays: Gionee W900
Gionee is a Chinese handset maker known in the Western world for releasing two smartphones that were, at the time of their launch, the thinnest on the market: the Elife S5.5 and the Elife E5.1. Now, Gionee is getting ready to introduce another interesting smartphone: the world's first to sport two 1080p displays.

Called Gionee W900, the smartphone is a clamshell designed to resemble Samsung’s Android flip phones - which seem to be very popular in China. Its internal and external displays both measure 4 inches and offer 1080 x 1920 pixel resolutions (with a pretty crazy 550 ppi density).

The W900 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, weighs 172 grams, and is 14.8mm thick when closed. It’s powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor of unknown provenience, while other features include: LTE, a 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2050 mAh battery.

At the moment, there’s no word on when and for how much the Gionee W900 will be released. In any case, it will probably be available only in China, where it's been already certified by authorities. Would you buy such a smartphone if you had the chance?

Only an idiot would think of that. "Wow it has metal sides so it must copied from the iPhone 5!" is basically what you're saying. Wow people like you can never appreciate technology.

Give me a flip phone with the Mythical Nokia N91 camera set up (I am sure they can stick an even nicer 1 inch camera with this configuration seeing what they can do with normal style)

For me one 4 incher with 1080p and solid and comfortable feel with very smooth operations and a solid camera would be the most preferred phone :-) 4 inches are enogh even iphone only crossed it with i6.

At first I thought so 4 inches are perfect but after using 4.7 inches for months I think I can handle '5 inches smartphones too.

6 inches is my new sweet spot. Don't know how I put up with a 4 inch phone for all those years.

I feel the battery is not enough to power two 1080p displays.

11. AndroidLollipop unregistered

4" panel and 1080p over killed 720p will be great

Gionee elife e7 was a fabulous phone. I would buy gionee products if Vivo didn't exist. For now, Vivo phones are the way to go.

"quad-core 1.5 GHz processor of unknown provenience" Seriously you CANNOT recognise those CPU specs?? It's the Snapdragon S4 Pro obviously!!! Not all SoC's contain the same specs.
