Gionee established its operations in India in 2012 and it had mere 2.2 percent share in the Indian smartphone market in 2017, according to Counterpoint. However, the company claims that it has over 6 percent market share of the Indian smartphone market. The company currently has a presence in over 42,000 retail outlets across 2200 cities in India.

To recall, Gionee has also launched S10 Lite with WhatsApp clone feature that enables users to create three WhatsApp accounts, allowing them to differentiate their personal and professional life.

 

The device allows a user to split screen, making it possible to juggle different activities on one screen at one time.

The smartphone comes with 4GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage that is expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card.
