Off late Gionee has been doing phenomenally great after the success of Elife E7 and Elife S5.5. While the company continues to perform exceedingly well in the mid-range market, the same cannot be said about the affordable segment.
In order to make its presence felt in the low-end market, Gionee today launched the Pioneer P2S in India at a price point of Rs. 6,499. The budget phone comes in Black, Blue, White, Yellow and Red color options.
The Gionee Pioneer P2S, a rival handset to mega popular Motorola Moto E, is an entry level phone made for masses. The phone has been trimmed down so as to reach a minimum price of Rs. 6,499. With the Pioneer P2S, Gionee has added a comprehensive handset in the affordable range. In comparison to the original Pioneer P2, the new phone surely features better specs but this doesn't look like a major upgrade.
Gionee Pioneer P2S - Highlighted Specifications
Talking about the spec sheet, the Pioneer P2S rocks a 4.0-inch touch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage, which can be later expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. The handset measures 9.3mm in terms of thickness and weighs in at 124grams. The makers have added a 1,600mAh battery fitted inside.
The Dual-SIM handset runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box. On the camera front, you'll get to see a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a VGA quality front-facing shooter. Other connectivity options include: 3G, Wi-Fi, FM Radio, GPS, among other features.
If you are looking forward to buy a new phone, you can probably check out either the Motorola Moto E or Micromax Canvas Unite 2. Both the devices run on Android 4.4.2 out of the box, plus you also get latest processors under the hood. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
