However, the Indian wing of the company has confirmed through Flipkart that it will be launching two new phones in the country.

The “S11 Lite” moniker is also mentioned in the launch teaser which indicates it could be also relaunched in India alongside the F205 handset. The Gionee S11 Lite was unveiled in India in April with a price tag of Rs. 13,999 which was too expensive for the specs it offered.

In July, some reports had claimed that Gionee may sell its Indian operations to Arvind Vohra who was the former Gionee India CEO and minority shareholder and is one of the promoters of Indian smartphone brand Karbonn Mobiles. As of this writing, there is no fresh information available on it.
