Gionee has already released many smartphones this year in all sectors – budget, mid-range & high end – but they’re not done yet. A new Gionee smartphone, the Gionee F5 which was certified back in December by China’s certification site, TENAA, has been launched in China.
The Gionee F5 berths in the mid-range section with an unusual screen size, powerful battery and overall good specs for a modern smartphone.
The Gionee F5 comes with a 5.3-inch display with an HD (1280 * 720) pixel resolution. Considering that most smartphones come with either a 5-inch display or 5.5-inch display these days, one can say Gionee is looking to get new customers with the uncommon screen size of the Gionee F5.
It has a metal unibody design and a physical home button with a fingerprint sensor embedded in it. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core processor with a speed of 15GHz, has 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD slot.
A 13MP camera with autofocus mans the rear of the smartphone while an 8MP camera holds the photography fort at the front. It comes with a Dual SIM slot with support for 4G VoLTE. The Gionee F5 packs a 4000mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Amigo UI layered on top.
