Gionee technologies, which advertises its smartphones based on their front camera selfie capabilities and substantial battery backup, has announced the launch of the Gionee A1 Lite, which is the ‘lite’ version of the Gionee A1 launched in MArch this year. Launched in Nepal, there is no data to indicate whether the new device will come to India soon. The Gionee A1 Lite is priced at NPR 26,999 (which translates to an Indian price tag of Rs 16,869) in Nepal. The new device has been made available in three colours as of now: red, black, and gold. Pre-booking will start from 18th of June in Nepal.
Gionee A1 Lite Specs and Features
The Gionee A1 Lite boasts a stunning 5.3 inch HD (1280 X 720 pixels) IPS display. Open it up and underneath, you will find a 1.3 GHz Octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor. The new device, as reported by The Mobile Indian, comes with 3GB RAM and the phone is powered by the top-of-the-shelf Android 7.0 Nougat operating system overlaid with the proprietary Amigo 4.0 UI on top of it.
The smartphone will come with dual-SIM and will also be 4G enabled. Also, you can expect a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device.
Gionee A1 Lite: Optics/Camera
As usual, Gionee has packed in a lot of camera features to make it worthy of the Gionee tag. A 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 20-megapixel front camera complete the package. The new Gionee A1 Lite has a 32 GB internal storage; however, whether it has an expandable storage option, whether by MicroSD card or otherwise, is not known as of now. Powered by a healthy 4,000 mAh battery which, Gionee claims, can offer 295 hours of standby time, it should be a heavy user’s delight as well. the Gionee A1 Lite supports 4G, WiFi, GPS/AGPS, micro USB, 3.5 mm audio jack and Bluetooth 4.1.
This new Gionee device will support 4G, WiFi, GPS/AGPS, micro USB, 3.5 mm audio jack as well as the faster and more secure Bluetooth 4.1.
Like we said earlier, there is no information about its launch in India. If sales volumes justify it, Gionee may, however, consider bringing it to India.
