The smartphone is completely in metal with a thickness of 9.1 mm and a weight of 226 grams. As for the photo department, the A1 Plus offers a 20 megapixel front camera and a double 13 + 5 mega-pixels rear camera.
Turning to the Gionee A1, we speak of a phone featuring a 5.5 inches diagonal display with a Full HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and powered by an SoC MediaTek Helio P10. No shortage 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD up to 256 GB and a battery 4010 mAh.
The latter is integrated inside a body with a thickness of 8.2 mm and a weight of 182 grams. The Gionee A1 has a 13 mega-pixels back camera with an f/2.0 opening and a 16 mega-pixels front camera as well.
Among the two new Gionee smartphones, there are some common features such as a fingerprint reader located below the Home button and not on the back-cover as the picture might imply. The operating system is Android 7 Nougat with the Amigo OS proprietary interface and a front LED flash.
Unfortunately, the Chinese manufacturer has yet to announce complete details on pricing and availability, and we await further confirmation.
