The Chinese company Gionee has launched a new budget smartphone and the terminal is called K3 Pro and is highlighted by the place where the fingerprint sensor is positioned. Specifically, Gionee K3 Pro is positioned right next to the 3 sensors that make up the camera and is quite difficult to access.
The Chinese company continues to focus on the notch to drop as a solution to have a “full screen” display and find the right space for the selfie camera. Gionee K3 Pro follows the trend of the models released in the previous months and offers a display from 6.53 ” with “only” resolution HD + (1600 x 720 pixels) and 19: 9 ratio. Thanks to the use of the aforementioned drop notch, the device reaches the surface/screen ratio of 90% (despite a not exactly optimized chin).
The body measures 164.3 x 77.6 x 9.7 mm for a weight of 205 grams. The rear body houses a triple camera square in Apple style, located in the upper left corner; inside the module, there is also the fingerprint reader digital, a detail that leaves the back cover practically “clean”, except for the brand logo at the bottom.
The technical sheet of Gionee K3 Pro it is quite standard and does not offer great ideas. The smartphone is a mid-range moved by MediaTek Helio P60, accompanied by 6 / 8GB of RAM and 128GB Expandable internal memory via microSD. The autonomy is entrusted to a battery from 4000mAh, with charging from 10W. Frontally, inside the drip notch, there is a selfie camera 13MP; the main module is a triple solution, headed by a sensor from 16MP.
On the connectivity side, we find Dual SIM and 4G VoLTE support, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, one port Type-C for charging, and a mini-jack input from 3.5mm for headphone audio. Unfortunately at the software level we still find Android 9 Pie.
Price and Availability
The price of Gionee K3 Pro starts from 699 yuan ( approximately $101 ) for the 6/128 GB model. For the version with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, it goes up to 799 yuan (about $115). It comes in Jade Green and Pearl White colors. It will go on sale on sale in China soon. The Chinese brand tries to gain ground by offering a basic device, within everyone’s reach thanks to an acceptable technical data sheet and a greedy price.
