The smartphone was originally introduced in November last year alongside Pioneer P5L LTE and V6L LTE smartphones.
“The Pioneer series has been receiving favourable response from the consumers in India. All the models have been appreciated and the P4S takes the standards a level higher by packing superior features in a good looking smartphone. Gionee has been setting high standards in various aspects and believes in giving the consumers better than the best. Having sold over 4 million devices in India, our smartphones are a manifest of our in-depth R&D, design expertise and manufacturing ability,” said Arvind. R. Vohra, Country CEO & MD – Gionee India.
The Gionee Pioneer P4S comes with a 4.5-inch FWVGA display, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.4 and 1GB of RAM. Other specifications of the phone include 5MP rear camera, 2MP front shooter, 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, dual-SIM support and 1800 mAh battery.
The company has also included a feature called Flip in the phone, which, it notes, will allow the consumers to transfer files, get the perfect photo, listen to surround music, and stay secured. However, not specifics about the feature are known as at this point.
At the given price-tag, the phone will be competing with the likes of Lenovo A6000 Plus, Moto E (2nd Gen), and Xiaomi Redmi 2 in the country, all of which pack better specifications than the Gionee smartphone and retail at lower or similar price-tags.
