Gionee seems to be returning gradually after it became insolvent about two years ago from gambling allegation on the company’s CEO. The summary of it all remains that some how, the brand was still making phones, even though some of it regional operations were taken over by other companies.

For example, the brand has been announcing phones in Nigeria all along. Models like the Gionee M11-series, P10m, S8s, M7 Lite, K6 and the recent Gione S12 were all announced after the company declared bankrupt. Currently, the company will be announcing a new smartphone in India tomorrow, bearing the name Gionee Max, almost a year later after announcing the F9-series.
