Gionee A1 Plus (4550mAh Battery) India Launch (14 July)
Gionee A1 Plus (4550mAh Battery) India Launch (14 July) – Gionee is one among the brands which are touting the selfie-centered smartphones to cope up with the trend. The brand launched two smartphones at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona earlier this year- Gionee A1 and A1 Plus.
Both the smartphones are selfie-centric ones and offer a decent selfie camera. In March 2017, the brand launched the smaller Gionee A1 in India for Rs. 19,999. We have already covered the review of the product and was pretty impressed with the selfie camera.
Now, Gionee will launch the bigger A1 Plus smartphone in India on July 14, three days from now. The A1 Plus has better hardware than the Gionee A1. In fact, it is the company’s first dual camera smartphone. The A1 Plus is already available in some countries, while only the Gionee A1 is available in India at the moment.
Gionee started teasing the smartphone on its social media handles, and some YouTubers have already acquired a unit of the A1 Plus from the local retail stores, meaning the device will be sold offline as well.
Before heading to the specifications of the phone, the A1 Plus’s MRP is Rs. 29,029, which is printed on the box. However, the actual price would be different, and it might be Rs. 26,999 or Rs. 27,999 in India. This is a decent pricing for the phone, but there are other options in the similar price range such as Moto Z2 Play, OnePlus 3T, etc. But all of them lack the dual camera at the back, which the Gionee A1 Plus has. It will also compete with the Oppo F3 Plus in this price range which also has a Dual front-facing selfie camera.
The Gionee A1 Plus comes with a larger 6-inch screen compared to the 5.5-inch screen seen on the Gionee A1. However, the resolution of the display is unchanged, meaning it has the same 1080×1920 pixels resolution with 2.5D curved glass and Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top.
The A1 Plus runs on Gionee’s Amigo UI 4.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat. The Amigo UI comes with a host of customizations and features, which is very much expected.
The device is powered by the MediaTek MT6757T Helio P25 octa-core chip, which is clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. The native storage is expandable up to 128 GB via a hybrid microSD card slot.
The USP of the Gionee A1 Plus is the dual camera setup at the back which has one 13 MP sensor and one 5 MP sensor. The rear camera has support for f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and LED flash. Gionee also added a 20 MP front-facing camera which also has f/2.0 aperture, 1/2.8-inch sensor.
The smartphone has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 801.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and USB Type-C port. Lastly, the phone comes with a large 4550mAh battery with fast charge technology as well.
Gionee will sell the A1 Plus in both offline and online market in India.
