In the U.S., Google is involved in projects like their Google Fiber and Project Fi to bring high speed Internet access to a wide variety of users and to help push the market to more expansive and cheaper access. In other parts of the world though, Google is working to just implement basic high-speed Internet access. One of those locations is India where it is estimated only 2 to 4 million households in a nation with a population of 1.3 billion people have an Internet connection fast enough to stream an HD movie. To address that, Google identified train stations as a good spot to reach a large number of people.

The Gionee Marathon M5 Lite is now available for buyers in India at a price of 12,999 Rs ($195 USD). The Indian market will be the second one for the device which launched in China last month alongside the Gionee Marathon M5 Plus. However, the device Gionee is making available in India is upgraded compared to the Chinese version, getting 3GB of RAM instead of 1GB and it comes with 32GB of RAM instead of 16GB.
Gionee is hoping one feature of the Marathon M5 Lite that will be of interest to potential buyers is the battery. They packed in a 4,000 mAh battery which is expected to provide about 3 days of typical use between charges. Other specs are more in line with the budget price, like an 8MP rear-facing camera and the 1280 x 720 resolution 5-inch screen. The smartphone does come with Android 5.1 Lollipop along with Gionee’s Amigo 3.0 user interface layer.
