InFocus had been successful in launching few affordable smartphones in the crowded entry-level segment by offering competing specifications. A new device from is listed on the GFXbench benchmarking website, where we got some glimpse of specifications. The listing shows the new InFocus M640 to sport dual displays, where the second screen is expected to be e-ink display. The Yotaphones also sport similar kind of design where the front display is of IPS LCD panel while the e-ink display is placed on the rear of the device.
On the front, the M640 has a 5.5-inch Full HD display and a 3-inch e-ink display with HD resolution on the back. Under the hood is the 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor coupled with Mali-T720 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It has 16GB of internal storage along with a MicroSD card for storage expansion. The Yotaphones came with a hefty price tags, but the InFocus M640 that includes better specifications than the Yotaphones can be affordable as seen with the earlier launched devices from the company.
It packs a 13MP rear camera with dual tone LED flash and an 8MP front camera that can record video in 1080p resolution. The device supports only single SIM and offers 4G LTE along with other connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS, and MicroUSB 2.0. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with InLife UI 2.0 overlaid on top of it. While the InFocus M808 with almost similar specs is priced at Rs. 12,999; the M640 is expected to be priced around Rs. 20,000 price range.
Since the company hasn’t confirmed anything about the device, take this with a pinch of salt. Apart from Yotaphone; Samsung and LG had launched smartphones with dual displays but in different form factors. The Samsung W2016 clamshell phone came with dual 3.9-inch Super AMOLED displays and LG V10 included an always-on 2.1-inch secondary ticker display that acts as a notification hub and also includes several other functionalities.
Talking about the InFocus M640, there is no information about the launch date or the expected pricing of the device. If the listed specs are wrong, then the device may come with only one display which we cannot confirm until we have a confirmed source.
