The device is powered by the MediaTek P30 SoC and 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal storage. You can also increase the storage capacity with the included microSD card slot. If you don’t need more storage, you can also use the hybrid slot for a dual-SIM configuration.

The Indian smartphone market isn’t the easiest to break into, but with an affordable price tag, the Gionee S11 could prove to be a good option. Gionee has been trying to break into the market for a while now, with the launch of its Indian plant, and F103 smartphone which was made in India.

The device features a 3,410 mAh battery pack, and Gionee’s own Amigo OS skin on top of Android Nougat 7.1. It currently sells for RMB 1799 in China, which roughly translates to $275 USD or INR 17,637.
