Gionee India has extended its lineup by introducing the Gionee X1s at a price tag of Rs. 12,999. The X1 was launched last month, and this is the second phone in the series to further push the midrange lineup in an effective manner.

At a very decent price tag, Gionee is offering a fairly handsome camera configuration that gives the X1s an added edge over the competitors. Not only the rear camera, the front camera is also potent enough to give impressive results.
