Gionee is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer. The company is based in Shenzhen, Guandong, and was founded in 2002. It was China’s leading smartphone brand. In 2012, its market share in China was 4.7%. Gionee further expanded its market in countries like India, Taiwan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Vietnam, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, the Philippines, and Algeria.
In 2016, Gionee entered the Indian market with the F103 model. They claimed it to be a Made in India product as it was manufactured in a Foxconn plant in Andhra Pradesh. Later, the company was sold to Karbonn Mobiles in September 2018. In November of the same year, the chairman, Liu Lirong, reportedly lost $144 million to gambling in a casino. In the following month, the Shenzhen Intermediate People’s Court accepted the bankruptcy liquidation application filed by Huaxing Bank against Gionee. However, the company didn’t shut down for good and is still mildly operational.
