Gionee S10 Lite with face recognition to launch in India this month

Chinese smartphone maker Gionee is planning to launch a mid-range smartphone in India this month. The phone is supposed to be the Gionee S10 Lite which is the toned-down version of Gionee S10 which was launched in China back in May.

Gionee launched its flagship S10 smartphone with four cameras in China and the handset was not introduced in India. Now, the company is planning to launch a lighter version of the phone in India called the Gionee S10 Lite. However, it is also to be noted here that Gionee has launched eight new bezel-less phones including Gionee S11, S11s and S11 in China back in November.

Now, according to a report published on 91mobiles citing industry sources, Gionee is gearing up to launch the S10 Lite in India. This comes as a surprise as the alleged S10 Lite phone doesn’t feature the bezel-less display, as per the reports. Let’s check out the full specs!
