Gionee S10C is the most affordable and, of course, the least spectacular of the new S10 series smartphones from its maker. It comes with an HD display, a quad-core processor and 4GB RAM.
Gionee S10C Key Specs & Features
- 5.2-inch IPS Display, 720 x 1280 pixels (282 ppi)
- 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 CPU with 4GB RAM
- Android 7.0 (Nougat)
- 32GB Storage, up to 256GB memory card
- 13MP Rear Camera and 16MP Front Camera
- 4G LTE (up to 150 Mbps download)
- Fingerprint Sensor (Front)
- 3100 mAh Li-ion Battery
Design and Display
Gionee S10C seems to sport a metallic unibody design, which differs from other variants to a degree, most noticeably on the rear. It is thicker than the other S10 devices at about 7.9 mm. The weight is, however, friendlier at roughly 151 grams.
You will find a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display on the front of the Gionee S10C. This unit has a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels for a pixel density around 282 ppi. Viewing quality cannot compare to that of the other S10 variants, but it should still be good.
Gionee S10C doesn’t really have anything spectacular on the camera front, unlike its brothers. It packs a 13-megapixel sensor with LED flash, HDR and autofocus on the rear.
The selfie camera looks ready to serve up great selfies, though, with a resolution of 16 megapixels. Gionee S10 smartphone will reportedly also be able to record Full HD (1080p) videos at 30 fps.
Hardware and Software
Performance is one of the aspects in which concessions were made for the more pocket-friendly price of the Gionee S10C. You get a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. The CPU is paired with an Adreno 308 GPU and 4 GB of RAM.
Many users will not have issues with this configuration, though. The phone runs Gionee’s Amigo OS based on Android 7.0 Nougat. It has expandable internal storage having a capacity of 32GB.
Other Specs and Features
A 3,100mAh Li-Ion battery supplies juice to the Gionee S10C and looks to deliver great runtime considering relatively lower power needs. There is a front-mounted fingerprint scanner on offer, according to a source.
Connectivity features available in the Gionee S10C include 4G LTE, microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1 (LE, A2DP), and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot and Wi-Fi Direct. As would be expected, the smartphone offers dual SIM slots.
Pricing and Availability
Gionee S10C is not yet available in Nigeria, Ghana, or Kenya.
However, when available, you can buy the smartphone at leading online stores in the country.
The pricing is expected to range from 55,000 Naira to 95,000 Naira in Nigeria.
