Gionee K3 Pro unveiled in China
The Gionee K3 Pro has been launched in China and we can’t decide what’s weirder about it: the fact that it runs Android 9 Pie or the location of its fingerprint sensor. It’s 2020, and Google is going to release Android 11 in a few weeks. And yet this phone ships not with last year’s Android 10, but Android 9 Pie from 2018, for some reason. The fingerprint scanner probably not going to be a very smooth sailing unlocking experience every single time. We’ve seen scanners sort of integrated with camera islands before, but of the elongated variety, and crucially – islands that were centered on the rear. This one is neither. The design is ‘smart’, as in yeah, sure, it is cleaner than with a centered sensor outside of the island, but usability-wise, this seems like a huge downside.
K3 pro specifications
The brand is selling the handset in Jade Green and Pearl White color options with a 4,000mAh battery. the Gionee K3 Pro comes with a triple rear camera setup. This includes a 16-megapixel main camera with an f/2.0 aperture, alongside two other unknown shooters – although we’re assuming one is a depth sensor. On the front, one will find a 13-megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 aperture.
Anyway, the phone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P60 chipset (none of that Dimensity 5G action here), paired with 6 or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. There is a 6.53-inch display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. The panel operates at HD+ resolution.
