The Chinese tech company, Huaqin Technology has entered the Indian market with the launch of the 10.or E smartphone on Wednesday. The name of the company is 10.or pronounced as Tenor. This is yet another Chinese company to enter the 2nd largest mobile market in the world, this year. The phone will be an Amazon India-exclusive smartphone with a price tag starting at Rs 7999 for the 2GB variant and Rs 8999 for the 3GB variant.
Talking about the specifications of the smartphone, the phone sports a 5.5-inch FULL-HD IPS panel i.e. 1920×1080 resolution giving an approximate 403ppi, with a 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 covering on top of it. The OEM seems to be quite confident about the build quality as they have listed on the Amazon site that the phone has gone through over 900+ rigorous tests.
Regarding the camera, the phone sports a 13MP CMOS sensor on the back with PDAF support for faster focus speed and a 5MP sensor on the front for selfie clicks. The good thing here is that both the sensors are supported by LED flash for better lowlight clicks.
Talking about the processor the phone is powered by Snapdragon 430, a budget SoC with 8 ARM Cortex A-53 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz. Regarding graphics, this part is handled by Adreno 505 which is quite a capable budget combo as seen on many budget smartphones like the Lenovo K6 Power, Yu Yureka Black and even the Moto G5. Regarding storage, it has 2 variants, 2+16GB and a+32GB.
In terms of the software department, the phone runs Android 7.1.2 out of the box which is a huge welcome move as iit’salways better to get the latest operative system from any OEM. Even the company claims that it will provide monthly security patches and updates for a better security experience. Above all the company has even guaranteed Android Oreo aka Android 8.0 update for the phone which is surely great news for the buyers. But the device will come preloaded with some Amazon apps like the Kindle app, Amazon prime video app etc
On the back, there is a fingerprint sensor, which the company claims will unlock the phone within 0.2 seconds. All these things will be powered by a massive 4000mAh battery but no fast charging option is included, meaning again a painful long charging time. The phone will come in two colours black and gold although there is no word on the date of the sale of the device.
