Gionee has launched a new budget smartphone ‘Pioneer P3S‘ in India. This is the successor for the last year launched Pioneer P3. The device is priced at Rs. 5,999 and offers some entry-level specifications. With this device, the company also offers a new software feature called as ‘Extreme Mode’ which gives last 10% of battery life last for few hours.
Timir Baran Acharya, GM, Gionee India said, “The latest offering Pioneer P3S is one of its kind device which packs stunning looks with powerful technology and is yet affordable. P3S ensures that consumers don’t have to compromise on quality and features over pricing.”
It comes with a 4.5-inch FWVGA (854×480) display and is powered by the MediaTek MT6580 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. It has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage along with a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion upto 32GB.
The Pioneer P3S sports a 5MP rear camera and VGA front-facing camera. Though you can capture some images, we don’t expect them to be of great quality. There is also a 2,000mAh battery that can last for a single day of usage considering the entry-level specifications.
It runs on latest Android 5.1 Lollipop based Amigo UI 3.1. The device comes with dual SIM dual standby support but lacks the 4G LTE connectivity. The other connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS, and MicroUSB 2.0. This is can be a good choice for those who are using feature phone and looking to shift for a smartphone.
