Gionee will hold an event at the MWC (Mobile World Congress), this Feb 27th at 11 AM, to launch their new smartphones A1 and A1 Plus. A massive list of rumors have already creeped in many websites, revealing these new devices’ potential features and specs.
Previously, the A1 was spotted on the Geekbench site, where it was said that it would run on the Android 7.0 Nougat OS; would include a MediaTek MT6755V/C Octa-Core processor; and its SoC will come along with a 4GB of RAM. The site has awarded the device a 699 points for its single-core and 2602 point for it multi-core performance, implying that it would be a mid-ranger.
In further, a Nepali tech site has also leaked a few of the A1’s specs, as per the allegations they received from an unknown leakster. According to it the Gionee A1 is expected to arrive with an attractive 2.5D curved-glass-covered 5.5-inch full HD display; its SoC would clock 1.8GHz with a 4 GB RAM; and would internally have room for 64 GB of storage, which could be expanded up to 128GB via micro SD card.
The leak, also added that the Gionee Amigo OS 4.0 will customize the Android 7.0 Nougat OS’s interface, according to their standards. It was even whispered that it would capture good quality images with its 13 MP rear camera that is complemented with a dual LED flash, whereas the front facing camera is predicted to be a 16 MP one, for amazing selfies.
The images of this dual SIM smartphone, leaked by the site, has thrown light on its perfect Gold colored full-metal body. The built quality looks to be quite good with a fingerprint scanner placed below the rear camera. However while looking at its back, it resembles the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3/4 pretty much closely. The 4,010 mAh battery, supporting 18W fast charging feature and the IR blaster are some of the interesting bonus scoops the site has conferred us.
After being launched at the MWC event, the Gionee A1 and A1 Plus would most probably go on sale in Nepal firstly, where it would cost 35999 NPR ($336), by this March’s 15th. They might also be launched in other markets like Africa and India.
