Are you a die heart fan of the iPhone 13, but don’t have enough money to buy it? Don’t worry, I have something very special for you. I will introduce a very cheap phone that exactly looks like the iPhone 13. It looks so similar that you can’t imagine.
Recently, Gionee launched a phone “Gionee G13 Pro” in China. Everyone is getting attracted by its iPhone 13 similar looks and its interesting price point. Gionee G13 Pro’s starting price is just CNY 529 (approx 6,200). Meanwhile, the highlighted features of Gionee G13 Pro are full HD display, Harmony OS, Unisoc T 310 SoC, and dual camera. Moving forward, let’s talk about it in detail.
Gionee G13 Pro Specifications
As we talked about earlier, it exactly looks like the iPhone 13. Gionee G13 Pro features the same flat edge body, diagonally placing of dual rear camera setup and the same front notch display. Meanwhile, the Gionee branding on the back is the only difference between iPhone 13 and Gionee G13 Pro.
It features a 6.26-inch full HD display. It offers a 19:9 aspect ratio, 720×1600 pixels resolutions, and a 60Hz refresh rate. Dimensions of Gionee G13 Pro are 158×76×9.2 mm and 195 g weight. It has a decent 3500 mAh Lithium-ion battery. And you have only a 5W charger in the box.
Performance aspects of Gionee G13 Pro are very different. It has Harmony OS instead of Android OS. The company is using an old chipset ‘Unisoc T310 SoC’ in the smartphone, which is something not good. And it has a Quad-Core CPU. Moreover, 4GB R.A.M. is there in the phone with 32GB and 128GB two storage options.
Smartphone has a dual rear camera setup with an LED flashlight. You have a 13MP primary camera with a 2MP macro sensor. On the front side, there is a 5MP selfie camera.

Gionee G13 Pro Price
The second interesting thing with Gionee G13 Pro is its price. Its prices are very low. Hardly there is any smartphone at this price point. 4GB RAM + 32GB storage variant price is CNY529 (approx 6,200INR). And 4GB RAM + 128GB Storage variant price is CNY699 (approx 8,200INR).
Gionee G13 Pro Availability In India
Gionee G13 Pro is only available in China. Till now, the company didn’t make any announcement related to its global launch. Talking about its India launch, I don’t think the company will launch it in India. Because of two reasons, probably, it will not launch in India: the first one is the almost dead market of Gionee and the second one is its Harmony OS. So, as of now, there are no announcements and expectations for its launching in India. If the company launches this smartphone in India, we are expecting the same prices and Android OS at least.
Although there is no comparison between iPhone 13 and Gionee G13 Pro because both the phones are like ‘chalk and cheese’. Both the phones have only design similarities. There is nothing more common between these two phones. Let me clear you one thing, built quality is much more different in both phones. Gionee G13 Pro has a plastic frame and iPhone 13’ frame is made of aluminum.
By launching Gionee G13 Pro, the company tried to target the customers with only its looks, because there is nothing except the looks. And I don’t think that customers will only be satisfied with the looks. Other brands already did this same, but it didn’t work.
With Harmony OS and the old generation chip, the device can’t satisfy the customers. In the present time, on the behalf of only looks, a smartphone can’t survive in the market.
I will not recommend you to buy to Gionee G13 Pro for the purpose of a useful smartphone. But, you can buy it if you are ready to spend six or seven thousand for just having the feeling of owning an iPhone 13.
