Gionee has been behind the scene for quite a while now. The company that was previously known to make phones with monster battery has slowly faded away into the background. But, the company made a surprising comeback today with the launch of a new smartphone.
Gionee launched the Gionee G13 Pro today in China and it looks just like an Apple iPhone. In fact, its designs is inspired by the iPhone design. It has same notched display, same flat side frame and dual rear cameras that is placed diagonally.
Another interesting thing about this phone is that it boots a new operating system. Gionee phones has always run on Android OS but the new Gionee G13 Pro boots Huawei’s HarmonyOS with the full HMS ecosystem.
