Gionee India has launched a new phone the Gionee F9 Plus, that sports a 6.26-inch HD+ Full View Dewdrop Display. The processor is described as an octa core one with a clocking speed of 1.65GHz, though the make and model of the chipset has not yet been disclosed.
The RAM support will be 3GB and 32GB onboard storage. This can be further increased up to 256GB through a microSD card. The OS will be the Android Pie out of the box.
The optics section has a dual camera setup in the rear with a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary camera. The front camera for selfies is also another 13MP shooter.
The Gionee F9 Plus has a large 4,050mAh battery which must give the device a long life.
Gionee has tried to time to launch to catch the festive season in India a little early. The Gionee F9 Plus with all these specs and features is being sold at Rs 7,690. Gionee hopes to get its sales through 42,000 retail outlets it has throughout the country. The phone will be available on leading ecommerce platforms as well.
Apart from the Gionee F9 Plus smartphone, the Indian company has also come out with a range of GBuddy accessories, which include Wireless Stylish Headphones, Sporty wireless Neckbands, Earphones and Power banks.
The share of the Indian mobile brands has come down drastically over the last few years when the Chinese smartphone makers started launching smartphones at feature phone prices. This virtually closed the doors for the Indian brands like Gionee. They still fight on hoping that the physical retail store network they have created, and the relationships built over the years can help them generate sales of the smartphones to the desired extent.
