Following the launch of the really expensive luxury smartphone, the Gionee M2017 a few days before the end of 2016, Gionee has started 2017 with lower priced devices. Right on the heels of the Gionee Steele 2 is a new phone called the Gionee F5L which passed through TENAA recently.
The Gionee F5L is a 5.3-inch device with a 720p display. It is equipped with a 1.5GHz octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. Its rear camera is a 13MP sensor and the selfie camera is an 8MP shooter.
The Gionee F5L just like the very expensive M2017 and the mid-range Steel 2 ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Gionee’s Amigo UI overlay. It packs a 4000mAh battery weighs 162g and measures 150 x 74.5 x 7.7 mm.
The specs of the F5L definitely screams mid-range but the pricing might not. Seeing as it has a larger RAM than the Steel 2 which is currently priced at ¥1299 (~$190), the Gionee F5L will most likely be priced around $200 to $250.
Since it has already been certified by TENAA, the phone should launch anytime soon. And when it does, you will be able to choose from either white or gold color options.
