Following the success of the X1, Neffos today introduces the ultra-affordable X1 Lite to Malaysian consumers. The cheaper sibling offers no compromise build quality and high-end features at a highly-accessible price point.
The X1 Lite features a symmetric design with a dual-curved plastic back cover. Measuring just 2.75mm at the edges, the device weighs a scant 138g.
It boasts 2.5D glass and is integrated with a 5-inch HD full in-cell IPS display.
Under the hood, the X1 Lite is powered by the venerable octa-core MediaTek MTK6750 CPU coupled with a Mali T860 MP2 GPU. It packs 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, upgradable further via microSD (up to 128GB).
On the camera front, Neffos has included a commendable 13MP rear camera with backside illumination (BSI), PDAF and a f/2.0 aperture 5P lens. Despite its price point, it boasts a fast autofocus of 0.2 seconds.
One nifty feature is Real-time Night mode where you can see the exact photo you’re about to take in the dark. It’s effectively having a set of night goggles, and handy when you’re doing low-light shots.
The 5MP selfie camera isn’t bad either. It packs an 84-degree wide-angle lens. Coupled with a “real-time beautify mode,” it ensures yours selfies always look good.
One thing Neffos is shouting about is the superfast fingerprint sensor that allows for 360-degree unlocking. Aside from unlocking your phone, the sensor can also be used to take selfies.
What’s also good is the 2,550mAh battery, that’s bigger than its more expensive sibling.
The awesome thing about the X1 Lite is that it runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, with NFUI (Neffos User Interface) 2.0 on top.
