 Neffos is one of the fastest growing smartphone brands in Malaysia, with its growing line of products ranging from X1 to the larger X1 Max, the X1 Lite provides consumers with an affordable option without compromising quality.

“As the world’s No. 1 provider of WLAN and broadband CPE devices, TP-Link today expanded its Neffos ecosystem of Android smartphones with the introduction of the X1 Lite, which promises high-end features without compromising on user experience and — more importantly — price. The Neffos X1 Lite may be the most affordable device in the X1 line of premium Android smartphones, but it’s built around the same proven design and manufacturing principles used by TP-Link for the past 21 years — principles that have made TP-Link the largest WLAN provider worldwide today. I am proud to announce that Malaysia is the first country to launch the X1 Lite as we continue in our effort to provide consumer the best in technology.” commented Jeffrey Chao, Chairman and President of TP-Link.  

“Ever since our inception in 2016, we have been experiencing exponential growth, following our aggressive marketing initiatives, which include nationwide roadshows, introduction of our brand ambassador Fazura, and our support to Malaysia’s highest rated reality singing competition - Mentor Milenia. These on-ground initiatives which received tremendous support and feedback have allowed us to grasp the market pulse. With this X1 Lite, we aim to continue providing our consumers the best product experience at a great value that is available in the market with our local partners.” said Hugo Cai, Director of TP-Link Distribution Malaysia Sdn Bhd.

Yours truly was present at the launch at the KL Hilton, and got to watch the gorgeous Neffos Brand Ambassador Fazura who made a special appearance at the launch performing her latest single Bangun. Promoting her upcoming album and hit drama show Hero Seorang Cinderella. The Music Video for Bangun will be directed by the famous movie director, Ghaz Abu Bakar (J Revolusi), and will feature lucky fans selected by Neffos via a social media campaign which was carried out last April.

“The Neffos X series have been a very reliable travel companion for me, staying connected so that I do not miss any important moments with loved ones. I am glad to be working with Neffos on this journey as we remind Malaysians the importance to stay connected with their loved ones, given the technology that we have today.” said Fazura.

She continued, “Neffos has been very supportive over my career endeavours as well. One of the recent highlights will be music video for my new single Bangun. In this music video, Neffos has connected me with my fans, where they will be featured in the MV with me. I am really looking forward to the shoot. It will be a fun one.“

The X1 Lite is symmetrically designed and features a dual-curved back cover for a natural one-hand grip so that users can send messages or take pictures on-the-go. Plastic casing ensures the X1 Lite weighs in at 138g.

Narrow edges of 2.75mm and 2.5D glass create the ultimate appearance while the screen deploys full in-cell IPS technology for a brighter and more vivid display. This makes the X1 Lite perfect for watching your favorite videos, films, and TV shows.

10-point touch improves gaming experience by generating a more accurate and versatile response from the LCD screen. Double tapping provides additional convenience by activating the screen without pressing the power button.  The X1 Lite proves that beauty and functionality can coexist.

The rear camera boasts a 13-megapixel sensor with backside illumination and 5P lens. A PDAF (phase-detection auto-focus) of just 0.2 seconds ensures you never miss the most important moments of your life. The f/2.0 aperture lens provides a shallow depth of field and makes taking clear shots in low light a breeze.

The Real-time Night shooting feature lets you see the exact photo you are about to take in the dark, effectively transforming your camera into a set of night vision goggles and taking the guesswork out of low-light photography.

The 5MP front camera with 84° wide-angle lens, makes it possible to take the perfect selfie with more friends. That real-time function has crossed over to the Neffos X1 Lite’s front camera. We have what we call “real-time beautify mode.” It makes taking selfies more intuitive. A 5-megapixel front camera comes complete with an 84° wide-angle lens and real-time capability, allowing users to take top quality selfies.

A fingerprint sensor is provided for a more secure unlocking option. Sophisticated sensor algorithms allow for 360° unlocking and reduce the time it takes to unlock your phone to a cool 0.2s. Fingerprint data refines with use so the more you unlock your X1 Lite, the quicker and more accurate this function becomes. Selfies can also be taken by fingerprint, making the process of capturing your favorite shots simpler and more efficient.

The X1 Lite is powered by a MediaTek octa-core CPU for optimal processing. A Mali T860 MP2 GPU, up to 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of ROM support to maximize loading, memory, and multi-tasking.

These features make for a reliable and powerful performance. Users will be able to manage basic smartphone functions such as web browsing and photo capture as well as more demanding ones like video streaming and playing games.

Based on Android 7.0, the X1 Lite operates NFUI (Neffos User Interface) 2.0 making interaction more fluid and natural. A 2550 mAh typical battery replaces the X1's 2250 mAh for additional capacity.
