Priced at Rs.8,999, the Gionee X1 comes in Gold and Black colors.

Soon after launching the A1 Lite selfie-centric smartphone in India, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Gionee on Monday expanded its product portfolio with the launch of a budget-oriented smartphone, dubbed as "Gionee X1" in the Indian tech market.

Gionee X1 price in India is Rs. 8,999.

The Director of Business Intelligence and Planning, Gionee India, Alok Shrivastava said at the launch event, "Gionee has always been committed to amaze its customers with premium quality products at attractive prices". We are not so sure the Gionee X1 may make it past Nougat.

Promotional offers that come with the phone include 10 GB additional data per month for Airtel subscribers for 6 recharges. However, you can purchase the Gionee X1 via offline retailers.

In terms of design, the Gionee X1 sports a metal unibody design with a metal frame all around, giving it an overall premium look. The camera's on Gionee X1 noted to be 8 MP rear facing + 8 MP front facing selfie camera. Other features in the camera section include Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus.

Powering the device is a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor clocked at 1.3GHz.

It also comes with connectivity options including 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack, and Micro-USB port. Further, the front camera comes with a front flash which the company promises to deliver "brighter and clearer selfies in the lowest of low-light conditions". The company is also offering 2 PayTM Cashback Vouchers Codes entitling customers with Rs 250 cashback on a minimum purchase of Rs 350 on PayTM Mall. The phone also comes with a fingerprint sensor as is evident from the image. The weight of the handset has not been specified but it measures 144.3 x 72.2 x 8.8mm in size.

The operating system is the Android Nougat version 7.0 and Gionee's Amigo 4.0 UI skin rides over it.
