The smartphone boasts the usual bevy of connectivity features including Dual SIM 4G LTE. Gionee F103 is quite a looker thanks to the neat body lines and the mirror finish which adds an extra dash of elegance. Interestingly, Gionee already has the Elife S series – which stands for Style. But looks like the F-series will be the cheaper version of S-series.
The Gionee F103 will be available in three color options including Pearl White, Dawn White and Black and will start retailing from September 1 at a price of Rs 9,999. The device will be sold across multiple sales channels including the traditional brick and mortar outlets.

That being said, the Gionee F103 will rival the likes of smartphones like Yu Yureka Plus, Redmi Note 4G and Lenovo K3 Note.
