Gionee is all set to unveil two smartphones in the upcoming Mobile World Congress event on February 27th. The Chinese company has sent out media invites for the same as well which reveal the name of the two devices- the Gionee A1 and its premium sibling Gionee A1 Plus. Just in time, a leak targeting the A1 has emerged, on the same day as the official invite was sent.
It is as if the leaksters were waiting for the opportune moment to make the leak public. And its not one but two leaks. One of them lists the specs while the other shows images of the handset. So, we have a plentiful to cover here!
The Gionee A1 will sport a 5.5-inch FHD 1080p touchscreen display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top. Under the hood, it will carry a 1.8 GHz octa-core MediaTek processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage.
On the imaging front, we have a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash and a 16 MP selfie snapper with flash. To keep the juices flowing there’s a 4,010 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat underneath Gionee’s own Amigo OS 4.0. Other features include fingerprint sensor.
After the MWC launch, the handset will make its way into Nepal on March 15 and should carry a price tag of NPR 35,999, which is around $336 or €316.
As for the A1 Plus, the name suggests it will be a top model. This is backed by the official invite from Gionee which provides that this will be bigger than the A1.
