The Gionee A1 Lite has made its way to India after making its debut in Nepal in June 2017. The handset is the cheaper cousin of the A1 and A1 Plus by virtue of having a Rs 14999 price tag.
As expected, the more affordable cost is accompanied by a downgrade in specs when compared against the A1, except for the selfie camera. The A1 Lite has gotten itself a 20MP front-facing shooter, better on paper than the 16MP one the former carried. The module is accompanied by a soft LED flash unit to light up photos in the dark.
Unusually, the 20MP selfie lens has a higher resolution than the 13MP rear snapper. Gionee’s followed similar practices with its previous phones, as have rivals like Oppo and Vivo. The primary unit is distinguished by the fact that it’s accompanied by dual-LED flash.
Other than its selfie chops, the A1 Lite’s other highlights include its 4000mAh battery. The powerhouse can apparently last for 295 hours on standby time and 30 hours of mixed usage including web browsing and video watching
