These two handsets use MediaTek processors (Helio P10 and P25), offering impressive front cameras (16 MP and 20 MP), LED flash on both front and back, as well as batteries with over 4,000 mAh each.

Gionee might not be a big name in the Western markets yet, but this Chinese brand has all it needs to succeed. Its latest handsets prove this fact by attacking two areas frequently taken into consideration by smartphone buyers when deciding what to get - battery life and photo shooting capabilities.

The two new Gionee handsets will hit the market as A1 and A1 Plus. These are their highlights:

  • A1 - MediaTek Helio P10, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, 16 MP front, 13 MP back, 5.5-inch full HD, 4,010 mAh
  • A1 Plus - MediaTek Helio P25, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, 20 MP front, 13 MP+5 MP back, 6.0-inch full HD, 4,550 mAh

Gionee's A1 and A1 Plus also feature a fast fingerprint reader (0.2 seconds) and run Android 7.0 Nougat. The first one is scheduled to hit the market next month, while the Plus would arrive one month later. The prices will be around $370 USD for the Gionee A1 and $540 USD for the larger A1 Plus. For now, there is no information about the arrival in the US of these two handsets.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
