The Nepali smartphone market is set to witness a release of another budget smartphone as Gionee unveiled its newest member of the P-series. As of now, the Gionee P7 is India exclusive, but we can expect the device to launch here in a week or so.
As for the specifications, the Gionee P7 sports a 5-inch IPS LCD display with the resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (294 PPI). This display is covered with a Soda Lime Glass – a not-so-popular glass protection.
Gionee hasn’t disclosed the chipset running the device yet. But since sort of a compact version of the Gionee P7 Max, we can expect it to run on a MediaTek SoC. The device has a Quad-core processor with the clock speed of 1.3 GHz as its CPU. 2GB of RAM goes alongside the processor. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Amigo 3.2 UI on top. On the storage front, the Gionee P7 features 16GB of on-board storage with an option to expand it up to 128GB via a microSD card.
On the optics front, the Gionee P7 houses an 8-megapixel rear facing camera equipped with a LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front facing camera. Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v 4.0, Wi-Fi Direct and FM Radio. It supports dual SIM cards. The device is backed by a 2,300mAh battery.
Talking about the device, Deepika Singh, Director – Marketing Communications, Gionee India said, “The Gionee P7, our latest Smartphone is a figure of strength and performance. With 4G picking up pace in the country and increasing internet penetration that is motivating multimedia usage, we have enhanced our already diverse 4G product portfolio with Gionee P7 which is designed to offer next generation experience to our consumers.”
We can expect the device to be priced around Rs. 16,000 since it was released in India for Rs. 9,999. These days, for Rs. 16,000 we can get devices with better specifications and performance. So, if Gionee really wants to cash in on the Nepali market with its new device, it needs to lower the device’s price.
