Back in September we reviewed Gionee Gpad G2 and now the popular Chinese mobile maker has officially announced Gpad G3 featuring a slightly larger display screen and priced aggressively at Rs 9,999. It should be noted that this particular model was already listed in e-commerce website Snapdeal last month and is available now for Rs. 9.425.
The dual-SIM (GSM+GSM), dual standby smartphone features a 5.5-inch LCD display with a 480×854 pixels resolution and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6589 processor, coupled with PowerVR SGX544 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The 5.5 inch display is marginally bigger than the previous G2 which came with a 5.3 inch display. The hardware internals seems to be identical. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
On the camera scale surprisingly Gionee has stripped down the specs. The Gpad G3 sports a 5-megapixel rear autofocus camera with LED flash and also includes a VGA front-facing camera. Ironically the G2 featured a 8 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front shooter.
The battery luggage includes a 2250 mAh battery and measures 157.3×79.3×9.6mm. The GPad G3 bears 4GB of inbuilt storage, which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options on the phablet include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, EDGE, GPRS and 3G.
