Gionee has announced its plans to launch two new Android smartphones at the upcoming MWC 2017. The company has started issuing invites for the launch of the Gionee A1 and the A1 Plus smartphones. We do not have detailed information about the two handsets – but what is being currently talked about is the possibility of these handsets packing a very capable selfie camera, a long lasting battery and a dual camera set up. Both the handsets are rumored fo feature a slim design and will come in two different sizes.
The launch event for the Gionee A1 and the A1 Plus is scheduled for February 27, 2017, where Gionee’s CEO William Lu will reveal more details about these new smartphones.
Meanwhile, we have had rumors about these two models earlier with some reports telling us the possibility of the Gionee A1 getting a 16-megapixel front-facing camera and a 5.5-inch 1080p screen. The handset will run Android 7.0 (Nougat), at launch and will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The handset will also get a 4000mAh battery which should offer more than a day’s worth of battery life.
We will, of course, update you regarding the launch of these Gionee phones at MWC 2017 as and when it happens. Watch this space!
