Gionee on Tuesday launched another selfie-centric smartphone - the Gionee A1 in India. The company did not announce the price but said the pre-orders in India will begin March 31.

The Gionee A1 features a 16-megapixel front snapper and was showcased at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona in February. At MWC, the company had said that A1 will retail at a price of EUR 349 (roughly Rs. 24,600) and the Gionee A1 Plus is priced at EUR 499 (roughly Rs. 35,200).

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 AMOLED (1080x1920 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.

The Gionee A1 will be available primarily in retail stores and will also be available through offline channels in India.
