Chinese manufacturer Gionee is going portrait mad with its new S10 smartphone, one that features dual-camera systems on both sides.
An 8-megapixel camera assists the more resolute main sensors on each side to enhance background detection and enable what may be claimed to be a better “Portrait Mode” blur effect than what Apple might do on the iPhone 7 Plus and be able to give more dimension to those pictures. There’s also a dedicated front-facing LED flash to get you into the beauty mood.
The fingerprint sensor on the rear (which neatly incorporates the odd little Gionee logo) is only just the start of the security measures that the company has put on the China-only device. SMS verification and call blocking are on as well as mobile payments tracking and verification. Oh yeah, and there’s an artificial intelligence engine to boot.
There’s baby blue, navy blue, black and pale gold for your color of choosing, but you’ve gotta pre-order to be one of the first to grab one for ¥2,599 ($379).
If you’re looking for a more accessible quad-camera phone, perhaps wait for the OnePlus 5 to arrive.
