On the back of the phone we find the previously mentioned dual camera setup, specifically a 13.0MP and 5.0MP shooters, kind of like what we saw on the Xiaomi Redmi Pro. The first camera is to capture the image while the second smaller sized camera captures depth information. Then through software you’ll be able to increase or decrease the depth of field in photos, thus creating images with augmented bokeh.

Just below the two cameras we find a funny-looking fingerprint scanner with Gionee’s logo imprinted on it, while on the front there’s a 13MP selfie-shooter with 79 degrees wide-angle lens and auto soft-light.
