The actual availability of the Gionee A1 still remains unknown, but Gionee had said at a launch event that the smartphone will also be made available via Amazon India for online sale at a later date.

The Gionee A1 was first unveiled alongside the Gionee A1 Plus at MWC 2017 last month. In international markets, the former is priced at EUR 349 (roughly Rs. 24,600) and the latter at EUR 499 (roughly Rs. 35,200).

As for specifications, the dual-SIM Gionee A1 smartphone runs Amigo 4.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat, and is a dual-SIM smartphone.

As for the rear camera, the Gionee A1 bears a 13-megapixel camera with a 1/3.06-inch Sony IMX258 sensor, and dual-LED flash.

Gionee has put a 16-megapixel front-facing fixed focus camera on the A1, with an f/2.0 aperture, a 1/3.06-inch sensor, a 5P lens, and a selfie flash that the company says it has customised to "spread light onto faces more evenly and softly." The smartphone also comes with a 'facial enhancement algorithm' that automatically detects a user's face and applies custom beauty settings. Other features being touted include the bokeh-selfie mode.

The Gionee A1 bears 64GB of inbuilt storage that's expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB). It measures 154.5×76.5×8.5mm and weighs 182 grams.
