Earlier we exclusively reported about the launch of new Gionee F103 in India that was priced at Rs.9,999. As per our source, Gionee will soon launch its second phone in its F-series that mainly focused on design and build of the device. The ‘Gionee F303‘ comes with cut down specifications of what we seen on F103.
The device sports a 4.7-inch HD (1280×720) AMOLED display and comes powered by the MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, coupled with Mali T-720 GPU and 1GB of RAM. There is 16GB of internal storage out of which only 12GB will be available to the end user; the device also includes microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 32GB.
There is an 8MP rear camera with an aperture of f/2.0 and LED flash, on the front it has a 5MP selfie camera that comes with lots of beauty modes. It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop based Amigo 3.0 UI. The connectivity on this dual SIM device includes 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS/A-GPS and microUSB 2.0. The device measures 137.0×66.7×7.5 mm and weighs 140.3 grams.
The Gionee F103 also features the same specs but with a larger 5-inch HD display and a 2,400mAh battery. The remain specifications remain same on both the devices. However the built quality is where the F303 has been better than F103, instead of the plastic back on the F103, the F303 features a metallic back cover.
China is the first country where the company has launched the F-series of smartphones. With the launch in India, the company might want to capture the share of the selfie-centric devices. Recently, Asus launched its Zenfone selfie with 13MP camera with dual-tone LED flash at both front and back of the device. Samsung has its Galaxy J series with front facing Led flash accompanied with a good front camera, but this all started by Sony with the launch of C3 which was the first device from major manufacturer to sports LED on the front.
