Gionee Max entry-level phone unveiled with dual cameras in India

    The Gionee Max entry-level Smartphone comes with a dual-camera setup, 6.1″ HD+ display, Android 10 OS, 5000mAh battery, and it is powered by a Spreadtrum’s SC9863A SoC with 2GB RAM.

    Gionee made the Max official as a budgeted Smartphone in India. The company announced the phone in the country, after a long time, about a year of their last release.

    In order to make the phone affordable, Gionee skips out on some handful of specifications and features. For instance, you will be missing out on a fingerprint sensor scanner.

    However, if you still want a biometric sensor, the company implemented the Face Unlock for password-less unlocking. Yea, there are other traditional unlocking features, such as Pin, Password, and Pattern.

    On the phone, you’ve got a 6.1-inch HD+ 720 pixels to display with 2.5D curved glass screen protection. The Gionee Max comes with a small U-shaped notch at the front for the 5-megapixel selfie shooter.

    Around the plastic-like back panel, the company plastered a vertically mounted dual-camera setup, where the 13-megapixel is the primary sensor, and supported by an unknown depth or Bokeh sensor.

    The economically-priced Smartphone is powered by a Spreadtrum’s SC9863A SoC with 2GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and it can be expanded up to 256GB using a dedicated microSD card slot.

    It runs Android 10 out of the box and has a moderate 5000mAh battery that draws its power from a traditional MicroUSB port. The company did mention any fast charging or how long the battery will last on a single charge.

    But the fun fact is that the phone comes with supports for reverse charging, which allows you to charge other phones using the Gionee Max. You can easily have a working Smartphone and a Powerbank combined into one.

    It supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, a 3.5mm headphone jack as its connectivity. The Gionee Max costs INR5,999, which is around $80 in the US and will go on sale in India from August 31 through Flipkart.
