Gionee is beefing up their A series portfolio. Initially announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, the A1 and A1 Plus sports a midrange title, with beefy specs. And now, the brand is following it up with the Gionee A1 Lite.
As the name would suggest, it is going to be the cheapest in the line-up. However, the handset still packs quite some impressive hardware.
For starters, the Gionee A1 Lite has a 20-megapixel selfie camera with LED flash — taking a clear shot towards other selfie-centric smartphones like the Vivo V5s. There’s also a 13-megapixel shooter at the back for a more proper picture taking.
But if you’re more about the important stuff, you’ll be glad to know that this thing packs a large 4000mAh battery. It’s definitely enough to power its 5.3-inch 720p IPS panel and the middling processor for more than a day.
Speaking of the SoC, there’s a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor inside this thing. It is then partnered by a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. This is the kind of chipset we usually see on a device in this caliber.
