Gionee F205 Pro has been launched in India. The Chinese smartphone brand appears to have made a comeback in the country, though we aren't sure how much interest it will garner with an entry-level offering with nothing much to write home about. The Gionee F205 Pro is available on Flipkart, with the e-commerce site also hosting a banner ad for it right in the midst of its Mobiles Bonanza Sale.
