Gionee A1 Virat Kohli Signature Edition launched in India for ₹19,999

After launching the Gionee A1 selfie-centric smartphone in India back in March this year, Gionee has today launched a special edition of the A1 called the Gionee A1 Virat Kohli Signature Edition. It comes with a price tag of ₹19,999 which is what the original A1 was priced at.


The Gionee A1 Virat Kohli Signature Edition has the same specifications that the original A1 has. It is powered by Helio P10 octa-core processor and is laced with 4 GB RAM. It flaunts a uni-body metal design and boasts a 5.5-inch Full-HD display.

The Gionee A1 Virat Kohli Signature Edition comes with a 13 MP camera at the back along with a 16 MP camera on the front. As this is a selfie-centric smartphone, Gionee has thrown in a Selfie Flash as well which helps in taking brighter selfies in low light.

Like we said, hardware wise, there’s no difference between the original A1 and the Signature Edition, however, the Signature Edition comes with Virat Kohli’s signature at its back which the original doesn’t.

We have always been committed to reach out to every Hindustani and empower them with better selfies and bigger batteries in our world of #Selfiestan. Virat Kohli is a powerhouse of energy, style and performance and resonates perfectly with our objective. The Signature Edition Gionee A1 is inspired by greatness and crafted with perfection, just like captain Kohli’s masterstrokes. With the launch of this exclusive edition that comes with Virat’s signature, we are extremely elated to reinforce our commitment of keeping our customers happy with a masterpiece beyond compare.” said Mr. Arvind R Vohra, Country CEO & MD, Gionee India.
