With depth of 7.4 millimeters, Gionee S96 is the slimmest Dual SIM feature phone in the world today.

As you can see, its ultra-sleek design is enough to capture anyone's fancy -- but actually, S96's thin form factor is just one of the many things to love about this release.

On the outside, the handset comes with brushed metal plates both in front and at the back giving it an air of elegance and corporate sophistication. This is an candybar feature phone that you won't be shy to put beside your high-end, flagship touchscreen smartphone.

Features-wise, Gionee S96 - which weighs only 97.7 grams - comes replete with a 2.6-inch 240 x 320 pixels QVGA TFT display with 153 ppi pixel density, single core MediaTek MT6260 processor, 8 MB of RAM, 16 MB of ROM, microSD card slot supporting up to 32 GB, 2 MegaPixel fixed focus camera with LED flash, VGA video recorder, Dual SIM Dual Standby support, and a removable 700 mAh Li-Ion battery pack.

Just like the Chinese company's other entry-level and midrange offerings, Gionee S96 ships with an eye-catching Orange Box.

Gionee S96's user interface is largely the same as that of Nokia feature phones with Symbian Series 60 operating system, which I think every Filipino should be familiar with.
