Gionee introduces a new budget smartphone - the Pioneer P3S, which is a prompt upgrade over the 2013's Pioneer P3. The new S model bumps the screen size, RAM amount and storage capacity.
The Gionee Pioneer P3S features a 4.5" FWVGA display and runs on the rather dated MT6582 chip. The MediaTek's platform offers a quad-core 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Mali-T400 GPU and 1GB RAM. Those are the same specs as the previous P3 model, but the RAM is doubled.
The Pioneer P3S also sports a 5MP AF rear camera, a VGA front snapper, 16GB expandable storage and a 2,000 mAh battery. The connectivity package includes 3G and dual-SIM capabilities.
Gionee Pioneer P3S runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with Amigo 3.1 launcher. It will go on sale in India this week for INR 5,999 or about $90. Unfortunately, that's currently the price of the much better Xiaomi Redmi 2, so you might want to consider your options before placing a bet.
It should be making headline in Zimbabwe too. I wonder what they do with this smartphone. Too poor to have wifi. Too poor to buy mobile data. Too poor to pay the bill of charging the phone. Might as well don't sell it to poor people. Too poor to buy ...
omg, this phone will be a headline in..........................ethiopia
I'd rather go with the Redmi 2.
