Gionee A1 launched in India, pre-orders open from March 31

Gionee to Launch Its A1 Handset Soon India

The launch event is going to be live streamed on official Gionee India Facebook page from 12 PM today. Connectivity suite on Gionee A1 offers 4G, VoLTE, WiFi b/g/n/, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS, AGPS and micro USB 2.o.

The smartphone, when showcased at MWC 2017 was accompanied by a larger "Plus" variant.

The smartphone is the first in the company's new A-series of smartphones - meant to deliver long-battery life and superior selfie photo quality.

The Gionee A1 bears 64GB of inbuilt storage that's expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB).

To recap, the Gionee A1 smartphone features a 5.5-inch full HD display. The dual-SIM enabled smartphone also has a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel.

The USP of the Gionee A1 is its 16MP front-facing camera that comes with support for fixed focus, f/2.0 aperture, 5P lens, and also selfie flash. On the front, it has a 16 megapixel camera for selfies with f/2.0 aperture.

In terms of specifications, the Gionee A1 is expected to come with a 4,010mAh battery, and the company is touting its new 18W "ultrafast charging" that charges the batteries fully in 2 hours.

In comparison to the Gionee A1, the Gionee A1 Plus phone has a 20 Mega Pixel front side camera and dual rear camera of 13 and 5 Mega Pixels respectively. While this isn't exactly necessary for most situations, one would have guessed that Gionee would go with the trend and have a selfie flash anyway.

Gionee A1 is expected to be priced in India at around Rs 24,600, while it is priced at Euro 349 in the European market. It also runs the MediaTek P25 processor, and has a bigger 6-inch FHD display. For the A1, this comes to a price of around Rs 24,000, so we'll have to wait and see if Gionee sticks with this same pricing for India as well. The handset measures 154.5 x 76.5 x 8.5mm and weighs 182 grams.
