The company also announced to launch the SmartPower it5600, SmartSelfie it5231, and SmartSelfie it2180 featured phones starting from Rs. 700. Apart from the already launched SelfiePro it1511, the company will launch the soon Wish it1508 and PowerPro it1410 smartphone in the near future. The SelfiePro it1511 sports entry-level specifications and is priced at Rs. 6,999.
It offers 4G LTE connectivity and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. The device comes with 5–inch HD IPS Oncell display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Under the hood is the MediaTek quad-core processor clocked at 1.0GHz along with Mali 400 GPU. It includes 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB internal memory along with a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. Inside the device, there is a 2,500 mAh battery powering the internals and we expect it to give a single of mixed usage.
Connectivity options on this device include 4G LTE, Wi–Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. It has an 8MP primary camera with dual LED flash. There is a dedicated shutter button on the side which is a rare feature on smartphones these days. The front facing camera is only limited to 2MP sensor and is also accompanied by LED flash too. There is no OIS (optical image stabilization) on this device but includes EIS (electronic image stabilization) for those shaky hands. The Selfie Pro will be is available in two color variants i.e black and champagne gold.
It comes with dual-SIM dual standby capability and features acceleration and proximity sensors which help in device automation. The company is targeting the affordable segment in India with that price point and is definitely going to face some tough competition from other Chinese smartphones like Coolpad Note 3 Lite, Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Meizu M2. But considering that fact that, it’s the company’s first smartphone attempt, there is still a lot of time to revert back with a better offering to the market in future.
