Gionee A1 Plus With 6-inch Display, 4550mAh Battery to Debut in India on July 14

Gionee is all set to launch the A1 Plus smartphone in India on July 14. Gionee, back in March launched the Gionee A1 smartphone in India for Rs. 19,999. Both the devices were first unveiled at the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona. Everyone expected that Gionee would launch both the A1 and A1 Plus at the same event in March, but that didn’t happen.


As the name itself suggests, the Gionee A1 Plus is a bigger variant of the Gionee A1 and has better specifications than the latter. Firstly, the device has a massive 6-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which further extends to 367 PPI. It has a massive 4550mAh battery with fast charging support. The large battery results in the weight of 226grams. The device measures 9.1mm thickness.

At the heart of the phone is a MediaTek MT6757T Helio P25 chipset, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The device has a hybrid card setup, where the second SIM card slot acts as a microSD card tray. The device accepts up to 256GB SD card. The Mali-T880MP2 GPU handles the graphic intensive tasks in the device.

In recent times, Gionee is heavily touting its phones as selfie-centric devices. The A1 Plus has a 20MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture, 1/2.8-inch sensor. However, Gionee did not add LED flash support for the A1 Plus though. At the back of the A1 Plus, Gionee has added two sensors of 13MP and 5MP. It also has LED flash support. The device also comes with selfie-bokeh camera mode.

The handset comes with a fingerprint sensor embedded into its home button, same as the Gionee A1. The phone has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB Type-C port. The smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat based Amigo UI 4.0.

Gionee priced the A1 at Rs. 19,999 in India, which is a decent pricing for the phone. Expect the Gionee A1 Plus to be priced somewhere close to Rs. 24,999 or even higher. The smartphone will compete against the Xiaomi Mi Max 2, which is speculated to launch in India later this month.
