In what can be seen as an iPhone 13 copycat, the Gionee G13 Pro has been unveiled. Perhaps the handset may be limited to the Chinese market, since it is powered by Huawei’s HMS. As earlier mentioned, the device mimics the design of Apple’s iPhone 13.
The G13 Pro features a 6.26-inches HD+ screen, with a 158 x 76 x 9.2 mm glass body, and overall weight of the phone is 195 grams. It comes in a more premium built as the frame of the phone is also said to be metal.
Just like the iPhone 13, Gionee’s G13 Pro does not have a physical fingerprint scanner, but relies only on the frontal AI FaceID, which also support closed-eye recognition.
The device is powered by a UNISOC Tiger T310 quad-core CPU maxed at 2.0GHz, along with PowerVR GT7200 GPU. The model has 4-Gigs of RAM and a 128-Gigs of built-in storage.
As for the camera department, the phone has two lenses on the rear and a single snapper upfront. The rear sensors consists of a 13-megapixel primary lens along with a secondary depth sensor, while the frontal lens is a 5-megapixel sensor for selfie.
The phone is fueled by a 3500mAh battery. Gionee also claims the battery supports fast charging via USB Type-C, but the specific charging watt is not stated.
