  • Tecno Spark 7 Debuts with Helio A25 SoC (as Amazon Exclusive)

    alt text

    The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Transsion Holdings has launched its Tecno Spark 7 handset in the Indian market. Starting 16th April, this budget handset will be available for sale on the Amazon India eCommerce platform.

    Though it is a budget handset, the Tecno Spark 7 is backed by a mammoth 6000mAh battery. Probably, that might be the only reason to advertise it as a 30-day standby handset. Apart from this, the company has not revealed anything related to screen time or video playtime.

    Tecno Spark 7 Specifications:

    The Tecno Spark 7 sports a 6.5-inch HD+ dot notch screen display with 720x1600p resolution. The aspect ratio and screen-to-body ratios are 20:9 and 90.34% respectively. Supporting a peak brightness of up to 480 nits, it can’t let you down.

    Powered by a MediaTek Helio A25 chipset and GE8320 GPU, it comes in low memory configuration – 2/32GB and 3/64GB. Of course, there’s a dedicated microSD card slot that helps the user to expand its storage capacity.

    Sadly, it doesn’t pack a 4/64GB configuration which is a new standard for the budget handsets.

    16MP AI Dual Rear Camera:

    alt text

    On the optics front, Tecno Spark 7 sports a 16MP AI dual rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and Quad Flash. The second module supports Video Bokeh and can record 120 fps slow-motion videos.

    For video calling and selfies, there’s an 8MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and dual front flash. It also packs Face Unlock and Fingerprint Sensor for tightening the security.

    Smart AI System for Longer Performance:

    As disclosed earlier, the Tecno Spark 7 comes with a 6000mAh battery. It is equipped with a smart AI system that cuts off the charging when completely done. As a result, the handset delivers a longer performance.

    Connectivity-wise, the Tecno Spark 7 supports 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, OTG, Bluetooth, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It sadly misses the USB-C charging cable inside the retail box.

    This Chinese handset boots Tecno’s HiOS 7.5 software built on Android 11. As it is a customized version, the handset has got many interesting features like dark mode, chat bubbles, etc.

    Available in 3 color variants (Magnet Black, Morpheus Blue, and Spruce Green), the Tecno Spark 7 will cost ₹7500 ($100/€85) for the basic 2/32GB model. For the next higher model 3/32GB, one has to pay ₹8500. As a launch offer, the company has announced a flat discount of ₹500 on both models.

    alt text

    The Finnish mobile phone manufacturer HMD Global has come up with a premium handset Nokia X20 with 5G support. Powered by the Snapdragon 480 chipset, this Microsoft-backed Android phone will provide full support for 3 years.

    Nokia known for providing stock Android experience has also packed guaranteed OS and security updates for 3 years. Incidentally, the Nokia X20 comes with a 3-year warranty period as well.

    Showing its love towards nature, the company has included a protective case that is 100% compostable.

    Nokia X20 Specifications:

    The Nokia X20 sports a 6.67-inch LCD display with 1080x2400p resolution. It supports a max brightness of up to 450 nits and color gamut coverage up to 82% NTSC.

    Sadly, the company didn’t mention anything about refresh rate and strengthened glass. However, it has packed a biodegradable screen protector in the retail box.

    Powered by the 8nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 5G chipset and Adreno 619 GPU, the Nokia X20 is available in 2 memory configurations - 6/128GB and 8/128GB. As it has got a hybrid dual-SIM slot, one can expand the internal storage up to 512GB using a microSD card.

    On the optics front, Nokia X20 has got 64MP ZEISS optics on the rear. It also includes 5MP ultra-wide-angle camera, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP depth sensor. The viewfinder can be configured as a split-screen or Picture-in-Picture. For the selfies and video calling, there’s a 32MP front camera with a fixed focus.

    Interestingly, HMD Global has also launched another handset by the name Nokia X10. Except for optics, all the remaining specs remain the same. In the case of the Nokia X20, one gets a 48MP primary camera and a demoted 8MP selfie sensor. Everything else remains the same.

    For connectivity, this Nokia X20 handset offers dual-SIM 5G, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Backed by a 4470mAh battery and 18W fast-charging, this holds well by providing 2-day battery life.

    As already specified, the Nokia X20 boots a clean Android 11 out of the box. Moreover, there’s a Nokia promise of 3 yr security updates.

    Priced at €310, this Nokia X20 will be available for sale in India as well. Going by the global price, one can expect it to be priced around ₹30K in the Indian subcontinent.

    However, in reality, Nokia needs to price its phones accordingly. Snapdragon 480 chipset is not bad, but there are many better smartphones like Redmi Note 10 Pro or Samsung Galaxy A52.

    So, what is your opinion on the latest HMD Global’s Nokia X20 5G handset? Share your thoughts.

    alt text

    The Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has launched X60 series smartphones in association with optics developer Zeiss for the Indian market.

    Though X60 Pro+ handset was actually exclusive to Chinese market, the three models appeared on Vivo’s international portal. Starting April 2nd, all the three phones will be up for sale in Midnight Black and Shimmer Blue colour options. The Pro+ variant has Emerald Blue with a faux leather finish.

    Leaving it aside, these handsets are now available for pre-order on both Amazon and Flipkart.

    Powered by the latest Snapdragon 888 chipset, the 6.56-inch Vivo X60 Pro+ sports a Super AMOLED screen with 1080p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. It supports HDR10+ and 1000 nits of peak brightness.

    In contrast, the X60 and X60 Pro models are powered by the Exynos 1080 chipset. However, the Chinese variants are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset.

    On the optics side, there’s a 50MP ISOCELL GN1 main camera with f/1.56 aperture. There’s a 48MP IMX598 ultra-wide-angle sensor (120º native FoV, 108º after correction) which is common to all the three models. Moreover, all the three X60 models sport pixel shift that aids color accuracy.

    With Night Panorama, the Vivo X60 series has got dedicated HDR Super Night Portrait and Kids Snapshot mode. The inbuilt camera modes helps the user to get the best shots using Vivo X60 series.

    The Vivo X60 Pro has got a triple-camera-setup with 48MP main camera, 13MP secondary sensor and another 13MP lens.

    Periscope and More:

    Seriously, the Vivo X60 series is a good camera handset than can deliver precise wide-angle shots with less distortion and clear picture. The 32MP front sensor is well managed to click selfies and record 4K video shots.

    Sadly, the X60 Pro variant is stripped of periscope lens. Instead, it gets a 13MP sensor with 2x telephoto camera and 50mm lens.

    Backed by a 4200mAh battery and 55W fast-charging, the Vivo X60 Pro+ is a decent smartphone that stays with you for a day and more. Though it has got bulky specs, the handset is just 7.59mm thick with a flexible 3D curved on the top.

    On the otherhand, the Vivo X60 Pro packs a 4,200mAh battery with 33W Flash Charge charging technology.

    All the three international models boot Funtouch OS 11.1 built on Android 11. If the things work out smoothly, one can expect the same Chinese OriginOS on the international models as well.

    Vivo X60 Series Availability:

    True to its global launch, the Vivo X60 and X60 Pro will be available in 20 international markets including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Middle East, Asia Pacific region, and the Europe, the UK and the UAE.

    Don’t know how the normal people will react to the 70K handsets. Though this is not an iPhone but surely the Vivo X60 series will do something tosell its flagship model.
