Alcatel has a new phone in their portfolio called the Shine Lite that was initially launched a couple of months ago in the international scene. Today, the stylish and premium looking Alcatel Shine Lite smartphone has now arrived in the Philippine market bearing a price tag of just Php9,999.
It is the Alcatel Shine Lite, nope there is no non-Lite or more premium version of it, sound weird right? Why would you release a Lite variant version where there now more high-end version of it to compare from? Maybe Alcatel will soon release the Alcatel Shine model sometime in the future, we don't know. Setting that aside, let's focus on this Shine Lite mobile phone.
Two of the prominent highlights of this Shine Lite device are the 2.5D glass implementation on its front and back panels with curved edges and the chamfered metal sides. Those two already make the Alcatel Shine Lite, shines out in the competition of mid-range devices.
Specs wise, the Alcatel Shine Lite offers a 5-inch HD IPS display with 5MP front camera that is equipped with LED flash and a 13MP rear facing camera with autofocus feature and dual-LED flash for a well color-balanced photos when taken using the flash. At the heart of the Shine Lite handset sits a quad-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz which is paired with a 2GB of RAM and a default internal storage of 16GB right out of the box. And of course, the phone supports microSD card for additional storage space if necessary.
For connectivity needs, users will be provided support to 4G LTE network for the fastest internet access possible, GPS with A-GPS in case you love to travel, and then the usual WiFi and Bluetooth functionalities.
And yes there is Fingerprint Scanner found on its back panel. And it's running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. For SIM slots, unfortunately, looks like we are having only one SIM card slot on this one.
