Comio, the smartphone brand that has been making steady in-roads in the smartphone market in India, today launched its new flagship- X1 Note. The device was teased on social media through some intriguing “leaks” and did obviously garner some hype.
The specs of the device that were known prior to the launch were:
• Full FHD screen
• Dual Camera
• Bokeh mode
• Under 10K price point
With the launch, we now know that the phone comes with the 18:9 infinity display, something that has become a standard with smartphones these days. (Samsung launched 4 devices with the 18:9 screen ratio yesterday). The FHD+ display that’s measured at 6-inches and sports a 2.5D curved display design. The 4G-VoLTE dual-SIM smartphone is powered by a 1.45GHz quad-core processor and has a mere 2,900 mAh battery.
Some of the other features include Android Oreo picture-in-picture (multiple apps), smarter battery, 2x faster interface, over 60 new emojis. The device also comes with an iPhone X like Face Unlock feature for additional security. The company also claims that the fingerprint sensor on the Comio X1 Note can unlock the device in just 0.15 seconds. The device also comes bundled with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB.
The camera setup is a 13+5 MP (f2.2/2.4) with 1080p recording for the rear and an 8 MP for the front. The company claims that the new Comio X1 Note is a photographer’s delight, as at this price point the handset comes bundled with camera modes like portrait/ bokeh, beauty, panorama, social and night mode.The battery however is a 2900mAh one which could be a bummer. We can only say if it will be good enough once we test the device.
The company is also providing after sales support for the new Comio X1 note with 1 year + 100 days warranty, one-time screen breakage warranty, 30-day replacement, a special buyback and upgrade offer allowing you to upgrade your old smartphone.
