Gionee has launched the A1 smartphone, which sports a 16MP front camera. The smartphone was first showcased at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona last month. Gionee had launched the A1 and A1 Plus smartphones at the conference, but it looks like India is only getting the A1 smartphone for now.
Gionee has not announced the price for its A1 smartphone, though the pre-booking for the smartphone starts March 31 on Amazon. Gionee is offering a two-year warranty along with a JBL headphone or a Swiss Military Bluetooth speaker to customers who pre-order the phone.
In terms of specifications, the Gionee A1 sports a 5.5-inch FHD IPS display (1980x1080p) display with a curved 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 on top. The Gionee A1 runs the MediaTek Helio P10 processor with 4GB RAM+64GB total storage, which is expandable to 128GB via a microSD slot.
Gionee A1 phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat with the company’s Amigo OS on top. It is a dual SIM smartphone. The highlight of the Gionee phone is the 16MP front facing camera, which promises much better selfies and a 4010 mAh battery, which should easily last a day for a user.
The front camera comes with Gionee’s customised selfie flash, with the company promising ‘enhanced facial complexions.” The front camera also comes with beauty settings, which can be customised as per a user’s needs. The front camera has fixed-focus, f/2.0 aperture and flash, while the 13MP rear camera comes with auto focus and f/2.0 aperture and flash.
In comparison to the Gionee A1, the A1 Plus phone has a 20MP front camera and dual rear camera of 13+5 MP set-up. It also runs the MediaTek P25 processor, and has a bigger 6-inch FHD display.
Gionee had priced the A1 and A1 Plus at 349 euro and 499 euros respectively. Gionee A1 smartphone will be available in gray, black and gold colour options. Dimensions of the phone are 54.5 x 76.5 x 8.5mm and it weighs 182 grams.
