Gionee launches F20f pro in India

Chinese smartphone maker Gionee, who reportedly filed for bankruptcy a couple of months ago, and steadily on the decline in a whimper has secretly launched the Gionee F205 Pro, a new budget smartphone in Indian market that seems to be a slightly upgraded version of last year’s Gionee F205, which was launched in India back in April.

Having seen off-industry issues skyrocket in the past year, a drastic loss in the market pool, and unarguably many expecting a point of no return for the Chinese smartphone giant, there might still be some tank left in the engine though.

The F205 Pro Budget phone might yet prove to be that point of call towards ensuring that an already built legacy is not quashed altogether as it offers pretty much cool easy-to-go specs upgrade to an unfinished work which is the Gionee F205.

Gionee F205 Pro Features and Specifications

The Gionee F205 Pro bears a 5.45-inch HD+ display with 720×1440 pixel screen resolution, an 18:9 aspect ratio, a 2.5D curved glass and drawing power from 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6739WW SoC along with 2GB of RAM. 

The inbuilt storage capacity of the device is just 16GB, which ain’t bad for someone making a return on a long journey with pretty much little to no knowledge of how thing have changed so far…aint so bad though!

That comes together with an option to expand the same up to 256GB using a microSD card. A 3,000mAh capacity battery underneath is never going to send the trumpets sounding to announce your arrival yet might as well keep things ticking. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box with a company’s custom interface on top.

Camera build is not so bad as there’s a single 13-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture. The rear camera has LED flash support and features Portrait Mode, Beautification, HDR, Scene Detection, and more. The front hosts a 5-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture.

For connectivity purpose, the Gionee F205 Pro features 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, GPS, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Micro-USB port. In terms of security, the phone features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

There are three colour options available for the Gionee F205 interested buyers- Black, Blue, and Champagne Gold.
Not so bad in a tech world where we are already getting our hands messy with folding phones and on the rise towards the advent of 5G connectivity to our cities. Welcome back Gionee!
