The Chinese manufacturer Gionee has established its presence with a wide range of interesting smartphones.
One of the recent contributions by this manufacturer is going to be the Gionee F103 Pro that will be an addition to its Fashion series. This handset is targeted at shoestring customers who want a medium priced handset with decent configuration. It is expected to be an enhancement of the F103 that made its way into the smartphone market last year. Read on to know some interesting details of this device to help you analyze whether you would like to own this Gionee offering or not. Reported to be available in golden rose and white colors, the gadget is rumored to support dual SIM facility.
Dimensions and Weight
As of now, Gionee has not made any announcement about the material that is used to manufacture the body of the F103 Pro. However, some ongoing talks indicate that the device has a metal frame for its sides along with a shiny metal finish for its front bezels. In addition, the back cover will depict a stylish patterned design.
Just as the leaked images of the handset indicate, the device is very likely to be quite compact and lightweight. Expected dimensions of the smartphone are 142 x 68 x 6 mm whilst the weight is speculated to be 145g. If these values turn out to be the actuals, then you can be assured that the gadget will be really easy to hold and operate or keep in your pocket when not in use.
Screen Size, Display, Resolution and Density
The Gionee F103 Pro is slated to come with a 5-inch screen with IPS LCD display technology. Like almost any other smartphone in the market today, the capacitive touchscreen of the smartphone will render 16 million colors and support the multi-touch feature. If ongoing talks are anything to go by, the F103 Pro HD screen will encompass a pixel resolution of 1280 x 720 and a pixel density of 294ppi. Other interesting details being talked about are the screen likely to incorporate a 2.5D curved display that is protected using Dragon Tail Glass.
On the whole, the smartphone appears to strike a good deal with its screen if the above details make themselves available in the handset when it is finally released. Owing to the IPS LCD screen, you will get wide viewing angles making it suitable for watching movies or playing games. Also, the pixel and resolution and pixel density values are good enough for a screen of the specified size which is believed to offer sharp and clear displays on the screen.
Rear and Front Snappers
Not much information is known about the cameras of the Pro handset as of date. Yet, from the very little details on hand, we can expect the Gionee smartphone to have decent snappers on both the rear and the front. The handset is believed to make use of a 13MP camera with autofocus and an LED flash as its primary shooter. This camera will also help you in recording 1080p videos. The device is also likely to appeal to selfie lovers as it is said to sport a secondary 5MP camera on the front.With decent megapixel ratings, the cameras do not appear to be a letdown.
Under the Hood – Hardware, Memory and Operating System
Even as the latest Fashion series offering is considered to be an entry level or mid-range device, the handset will have reasonably good configuration details. It will come integrated with 3GB RAM and a quad core MediaTek processor that clocks at 1.3GHz. Apart from the 16GB inbuilt storage that will come along with the Gionee F103 Pro, you can use a memory card to boost this limit by a further 32GB. The gadget will feature the current trending Android 6.0 Marshmallow along with the manufacturer’s very own Amigo UI.
The key highlight of the battery is that it is expected to be removable. The F103 Pro will portray a 2,400 mAh Li-Po battery. A fully charged battery is estimated to indicate good battery life with 470 hours of stand-by time and 20 hours of talk time apart from a maximum of 20 hours music playback and five hours video playback. The battery will however not offer support for either quick or wireless charging.
