This one is a budget friendly device, which will cost you Rs. 6,499. You can buy the handset in White, Black, Blue and Pink color variants from the company's official India eStore. The Gionee P2S is a successor to the company's previously launched P2.
Going by the specs, Gionee P2S smartphone comes with a 4-inch capacitive touch screen display offering a WVGA resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.
