Gionee F5 launched

Gionee has finally announced a new smartphone. To be honest, I couldn’t test any Gionee smartphone before, but I just heard good things about some of the models. The specs of the phone are actually pretty low, so it’s more aimed for the budget market. But for our taste its a bit on the expensive side. Here are the exact specs of the smartphone:

  • 5.3-inch 1280 x 720p display
  • MediaTek MT6750 SoC
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32GB ROM
  • 13 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 8 mega-pixel front camera
  • 4000mAh battery
  • Fingerprint sensor

The phone should also support WeChat and AliPay payment services.

The Gionee F5 is priced at 1799 yuan ($262) in China. The MTK 6750 SoC is not the most powerful one, but they combined it with 4GB of RAM. A price more near to the 200$ mark would be more competitve in our eyes. The phone is aimed for the chinese market only, there is no information right now if the phone will make it outside of china.
