Gome K1 officially launched with Iris Recognition and Fast Charge


Gome K1

Pretty unknown mobile phone brand Gome has just launched a new device, i.e. the Gome K1. The phone sports somewhat “high-end” hardware but it won’t come for cheap; let’s have a closer look!

Gome K1

Gome K1 Specifications

  • 5.5-inch Full HD display
  • MediaTek Helio P20 CPU
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage
  • Dual SIM Dual Standby
  • 16MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • 8MP front camera
  • Fingerprint scanner, GPS, compass, gyro
  • 4G (TD-LTE), China Unicom 4G (FDD-LTE)
  • Dimensions: 145.2x71x7.6 mm
  • 3500mAh battery with 5V / 5A fast charging

The Gome K1 features a metal unibody design with rounded edges, a 5.2-inch Full HD display coated in 2.75D glass which should look slightly better than the ordinary 2.5D. The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P20 clocked at 2.3Ghz, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The rear camera has a resolution of 16MP, F/2.0 aperture and 0.1s fast autofocus, meanwhile the selfie shooter is a 8.0MP one.

Gome’s K1 packs a 3500mAh capacity battery which can be fast charged at 5V / 5A —meaning 25W total power draw — through the USB Type-C port.

The highlight feature of this phone is probably the iris scanner on the front that should allow for faster unlocking without using the fingerprint scanner, which by looking at the renders appears non-existent but is still listed in the spec sheet.

Sadly, the only real photo of the device is of its back, as you can see down below.

The Gome K1 will set you back 2699 Yuan which is about $390, which is a quite high price for a device equipped with a MediaTek Helio P20. Are we missing anything?

    Well if its a start up brand itll get hella cheap by nect year or 2 like those ramos phones etc as foe the pricing not really surprised because:

    1) assuming its a new/small company maybe they cant get a supply chain or parts for cheaper deals

    2) vivo gionee, sony etc does this so its relatively common

    Hello.

    The phone works well but all programs for battery identification show that it only has 1000mAh of declared 3500mAh. I am dissatisfied because I was especially choosing a phone with a large and good battery and here what? producer cheating. Antutus result is decent because 71902 points. In addition, the phone loses WiFi yet I do not know how GPS works. After inserting a quick Toshiba Exceria SD 64GB card in the exfat format, he did not read it and after formatting on fat32, the card in the phone was too slow. Generally, Im not happy with this purchase.
