Gionee has expanded its lineup in India with the launch of Gionee X1s. The device is priced at Rs 12,999 and will be available starting from September 21. The main highlight of the Gionee X1s is the 16-Megapixel selfie sensor with LED flash.

The Gionee X1s comes equipped with a 5.2-inch HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass 3 and is powered by a MediaTek MT6737T along with 3GB of RAM. On the storage front, the device offers 16GB of internal storage along with microSD card slot that can accommodate up to 256GB of storage. The rear-facing fingerprint sensor also doubles up as a selfie trigger. Gionee X1s runs Amigo 4.0 which is flavored with Android 7.0.

Camera options on the Gionee X1s include a 13-Megapixel rear camera sensor with f2.0, LED flash. The secondary camera/selfie is a 16-Megapixel sensor with LED flash, Face Beauty 2.0, Beautified Video and well-lit pictures in low light conditions. Connectivity options on the Gionee X1s include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, Dual SIM, GPS and IR Blaster. The device is backed by a big 4000mAh battery and considering the fact that it comes with an HD display the battery should be pretty frugal.

Gionee is also bundling some launch offers with the X1s. Airtel customers who purchase the device will get 10GB of free data every month for a period of 6 months on all data recharges that are above 1GB. Furthermore, the company has also partnered with PayTM Mall and will be giving away two cashback vouchers worth Rs 250 each.

By launching Gionee X1s we aim to offer our consumers with an outstanding confluence of advanced technology accompanied with enhanced selfie + battery capabilities. We have received a good response for X1, and the aim with the X series is to establish a stronger connect with the younger audience. The X1s brings consumers premium photography and advanced features that go well beyond the conventional boundaries of this price segment. We are confident our users will embrace this fresh, stylish and innovatively propelled device. Alok Shrivastava, Director BI and Planning, Gionee India.
