Gionee A1 launched with 4GB RAM, 16MP front camera and 4010mAh battery at Rs. 25,000

After Oppo’s F1 and Vivo’s Y66, Gionee’s is here with its selfie focused smartphone series A1. The series includes 2 devices namely A1 and A1 plus and was first showcased at this year’s MWC event. Today, company launched the smaller variant, Gionee A1, at a launch event in New Delhi. The whole event was streamed live and is available to watch on their official Facebook page. Coming at a price of Rs. 25000 the phone is advertised as camera and battery focused.

Nothing fancy is done to the phone’s outlook which resembles OnePlus 3T a lot and that’s not bad at all. The device looks elegant in a full metal body construction. 2.5D curved glass protection adds to the beauty of device providing a smoother look altogether. Display is amazingly sharp as expected from a 5.5-inch full HD super AMOLED panel. The device weighs 182 grams and has a thickness of 8.5mm. A battery of 4010mAh explains over 8mm thickness and that’s acceptable provided it claims a battery life of more than a day at heavy usage.

Front camera is specialty of Gionee A1. A 16MP sensor with a f/2.0 aperture is provided along with front LED flash to enhance the selfie quality. A 13MP rear camera capable of recording FHD videos also clicks decent images. Under the hood, there is a Helio P10 coupled with 4GB of RAM to handle day to day processing. P10 chip is a bit disappointing but that’s not much of a problem for general use. 64GB of internal storage is provided which is expandable to 128GB. You get all the connectivity options including support for VOLTE and a USB-C connector capable of extra-fast charging.

Overall, it’s a good-looking smartphone for selfie lovers. If lack of dual camera setup disappoints you, go for Honor8. One Plus 3T is an option too which is a bit costlier but scores better at every front except selfies. All of this boils down to A1’s USP. If u want a phone for selfies, you got it.
