Chinese Smartphone Giants Gionee has launched its new midrange phone, the Gionee Steel 2 at an event in China today. Named as Steel 2, the smartphone is priced at CNY 1,299 (approx NRs. 20,300).
The Steel 2 is the new family in the Gionee’s lineup. The company has received good feedbacks in the Marathon series that promises excellent battery life and the S-series that offers good selfie experience. Now, the company is trying to mix both of these features in the Steel 2 with a 4000mAh battery, metal body, and a 5MP selfie snapper up front.
This device runs on the MediaTek MT6737 chipset with quad-core processor ticking at 1.3 GHz. It has 3 GB RAM and two options for internal storage – 16 and 32 GB. If that’s not enough, you can go for microSD expansion upto 64GB. There’s a 5-inch HD IPS display, a home button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner, a 8MP rear camera as well. Other notable features include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, OTG supports and dual SIM with 4G LTE. All this hardware is run by Android 6.0 Marshmallow software with Amigo UI 3.5 layered on top.
Unfortunately, there’s no words on when it’s going to be available in Nepal and what’s the pricing of the phone would be. But, we should expect the phone to launch in Nepal soon for around Rs. 20,000.
