After being spotted on Google Play Console, Gionee F8 Neo has now been officially launched in India as an entry-level smartphone. This device is expected to take on the likes of Samsung’s cheapest 2020 smartphone – Galaxy M01 Core.
The Gionee F8 Neo is built around a 5.4-inch HD+ (720 x 1440 pixels) LCD panel without any notch or punch-hole. Therefore, the 5MP selfie camera resides in the bezel above the screen along with an LED flash and an earpiece for calls.
The back of the handset sports geometric patterns like certain realme devices and houses an 8MP main camera accompanied by an LED flash. Being a super cheap smartphone, it lacks a fingerprint sensor but does support the less secure face unlock via the front-facing camera.
The phone is powered by UNISOC (formerly Spreadtrum) SC9863A chipset paired with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. If required, users can further expand the storage up to 256GB via microSD card.
Further, the phone runs Android 10 and is backed by a 3,000mAh battery with support for 10W charging.
