Gionee K3 Pro unveiled in China with weird Helio P60 and fingerprint sensor location
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.
