Gionee A1 has finally gone official in India, after debuting at the MWC 2017. The latest smartphone from Gionee is aimed at the selfie enthusiasts. The Gionee A1 is available for sale priced at Rs19,999 via offline and online channels.
The Gionee A1 comes in a metal unibody design that bears a slightly protruding rear camera, a circular dimple with an embossed Gionee logo and two horizontal antenna bands. Up front, the Gionee A1 packs a 5.5-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) Super AMOLED display with a 2.5D curved glass.
Powering the Gionee A1 is the good old Mediatek Helio P10 octa-core SoC and 4GB RAM. As for the storage, the Gionee A1 features a 64GB of internal memory. With that said, the mid-range smartphone from Gionee also comes with an expandable storage option via a microSD card. It is, however, worth noting that the Gionee A1 doesn’t come with a dedicated memory slot. Rather, it packs a Hybrid SIM slot that supports either two SIMs or one SIM with a MicroSD card.
The main focus of the Gionee A1 however, is its front camera. The smartphone boasts a 16MP f/2.0 sensor with selfie flash. Thus, it goes without saying, the smartphone would be directly competing with Oppo F1s. The rear shooter of the Gionee A1, on the other hand, packs a 13MP f/2.0 sensor that boasts 1.12µm pixels. One downside of the smartphone, however, is the fact that the rear shooter isn’t capable of shooting 4K videos.
Apart from these, the mid-range smartphone from Gionee comes with a Fingerprint Sensor which is embedded in the rectangular home button located just below the 5.5-inch display. The rest of specifications of the smartphone include WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth
4.0, A-GPS and microUSB 2.0.
The Gionee A1 is powered by a 4,010mAh battery on the inside. It also comes with Fast Charging technology. The selfie focused smartphone run on Android Nougat 7.0 with the company’s own Amigo OS 4.0 on top. It comes in three color options namely Black, Gray and Gold, and will be up for pre-booking starting March 31st.
