About a week ago, Gionee began teasing the launch of a new entry-level smartphone in the India market on the 25th of August. Well, just as promised, the all new Gionee Max is now official in India. This comes almost after a year since Gionee introduced F9 and F9 Plus smartphones in India.
The device is a budget smartphone with basic specifications. It comes in a 6.1-inch screen and has HD+ display res. An octa-core UNISOC SC9863A SoC seat on the inside with 8-core CPUs @1.6GHz. Graphics and gaming are handled by the PowerVR GE8322 GPU, along with 2GB RAM and 32GB of eMMC 5.1 storage.
Camera duties are in the hands of a dual 13 MP + QVGA lens at the back, while a single 5-megapixel selfie snapper is left upfront. The 6.1-inch screen has a U-shaped notch overhead, and that is where the selfie lens is kept.
The major selling point of the Gionee Max is the built-in 5000mAh battery, which gave the phone a chunky 10.75 mm width. Also, faceID is all you’ll be getting as the phone does not support physical fingerprint scanner.
