There are two entry level units here and two LTE smartphones with higher end specs. All the newcomers will be sold starting with next month and will have Android 4.4 on board. We start off with Gionee P4S, pictured above and packing budget specs. The model has a windowed back cover, support for gesture control and a 4.5 inch display with FWVGA resolution. Then there’s the Gionee P6, pictured below and packing a 5 inch display.
