The most important feature of this smartphone is the selfie camera and 4000 mAh battery.

Following the launch of A1 Plus in India last month, On Wednesday Gionee India has launched its A1 Lite smartphone with a dual-rear camera.

The Gionee A1 Lite runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The Gionee A1 Lite, in comparison, is the cheapest of the lot, and it bears toned-down specifications as well.
