The phone is available in white, black, blue purple and pink colors.
RAM & Camera
2GB RAM helps the functioning of the Smartphone with the octa-core CPU. As most Smartphones these days have, the Gionee device will also come with two cameras. The primary camera is 13MP with LED flash. The secondary camera is also a decent one with 5MP capacity that helps in video calling.
The connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, 3G, USB OTG, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
Memory & Battery
The internal storage capacity of the phone is 16GB. However, there is no microSD card slot available. So, you cannot expand the memory. This can be a downside of the device as the two cameras are of decent pixel density and the space won’t be sufficient with lots of videos and images. The phone is bundled with 2300mAh battery.
The Gionee gadget measures 145.1mm X 70.2mm X 5.55mm and weighs a light 130 grams. And attjust 5.5mm thickness, the device might just be the slimmest Smartphone in the world.
