The X1 is Gionee's newest budget device for the Indian market. It features the MT6737, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a rear fingerprint reader, and a 3000mAh battery. Not a bad deal for US$140, all things considered.

We recently reported the details of the Gionee M2018, Gionee's luxury business class device for this yearone that we expect to come with a price tag of up to US$2000. The company is not ignoring the regular side of the market, though, as it has just released a new budget device for the Indian market, the Gionee X1.

The X1 brings nothing spectacular to the table but that's to be expected, as it's a budget device. It will be powered by MediaTek's lower mid-range MT6737 SoC, and sports a 5" HD display, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, 8MP cameras at both the rear and front, a rear fingerprint sensor, and a 3000mAh battery. It will run on Gionee's Amigo 4.0 skin, which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

The X1 comes with a price tag of US$140, which is fair, as it's a bit cheaper than most competing devices with similar specs. The recently released Redmi Note 5A is a great option, too, especially for those in search of relatively better camera performance. Buying the X1 is not without its perks, also, as Airtel customers get 10 GB of data for a six-month window on every data recharge of 1 GB and above.
