The Gionee X1 comes with an intuitive biometric sensor; however, it only serves to unlock the device as well as capture selfies conveniently, and can not be used for security and privacy protection purposes.
Now, the company has introduced the all-new X-series by launching a new smartphone dubbed Gionee X1. The Gionee X1 has a 3.5mm audio jack although it lacks FM Radio, and ships with an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and an ambient light sensor.
Commenting on the launch, Alok Shrivastava, Director of Business Intelligence and Planning, Gionee India said, "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. Additionally, Gionee has also partnered with Paytm to offer customers two Paytm cashback vouchers worth Rs. 250 each on the purchase of Gionee X1 smartphone. This phone is now available for Rs. 8999 from retail stores across the country. The Gionee X1 sports a 5-inch HD (720p) display and sips its juice from a 3,000mAh battery that the company claims will keep the phone up and running for an entire day.
