Gionee on Tuesday launched another selfie-centric smartphone – the Gionee A1 in India.
The Gionee A1 features a 16-megapixel front snapper and was showcased at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona in February. The pre-orders in India begin March 31.
Gionee had launched the A1 and A1 Plus smartphones at the conference, but India is only getting the A1 smartphone for now.
It is pertinent to note that Gionee’s new A-Series lineup focusses on selfie images and battery life. Gionee has added a big 4010mAh battery to the A1 and it says that the new ‘ultrafast-charging’ charges the batteries completely in two hours.
In terms of specifications, the Gionee A1 sports a 16-megapixel front-camera, apart from a 13-megapixel rear camera. It runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with the company’s Amigo 4.0 OS on top, and is a dual-SIM smartphone. Gionee A1 has a 5.5-inch full-HD in-cell (1080×1920 pixels) display and is powered by a MediaTek MT6755 processor.
The A1’s front camera is equipped 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 according to the 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.
