Smartron may be another Indian tech startup that wishes to capture the market, but their approach is entirely different from any of the smartphone manufacturers. Instead of focusing on the budget segment, like many of the companies have been doing, Smartron is launching their devices in the mid-range segment, be it the Smartron t.book, the 2-in-1 Windows laptop that was launched last month, or the Smartron t.phone launched today.
It comes with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The display is covered with Gorilla Glass 3 for protection against scratches. It runs on the latest version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The device also has tronx that lets you access various services like t.cloud, t.store and t.care from Smartron.
The smartphone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 64-bit processor, and is clocked at 2.0 GHz and has Adreno 430 GPU for graphics. While the latest processor from Qualcomm is the Snapdragon 820, the t.phone settles with a year old Snapdragon 810. The RAM capacity of the smartphone is 4 GB, and the internal storage is of 64 GB which is expandable.
Smartron t.phone supports dual-SIM capabilities, but the slots are hybrid ones. That means, you can either add two SIM cards or one SIM card and one microSD card at a time. The device supports 4G LTE connectivity, and also has USB Type-C port that comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0.
On the camera front, the company has included a 13 MP camera on the back that is accompanied by dual-LED flash. The camera has an aperture of f/2.0 and supports PDAF for better photography in low light. The front camera is of 4 MP and it also has f/2.0 aperture. The battery capacity of the smartphone is 3000 mAh.
The Smartron t.phone will be available in Orange, Silver, Blue and Violet colour options and has been priced at Rs. 22,999. You can get the device either from Smartron tstore and Gadgets360 starting June this year.
