Itel has introduced a brand-new entry-level smartphone. Despite its humble specs, the new Itel P40 tries to impress by having a large battery.
The new Itel P40 comes with a large 6,000mAh battery, which the company claims can last for up to 15 days on standby and 32 hours of continuous calls. Charging is done by the standard 18W adapter.
Battery life should be much longer considering that it only has an HD+ display with 1612 x 720 pixels. It’s slightly larger than normal at 6.6 inches and comes with a responsive 120Hz touch sampling rate.
There’s a 5-megapixel camera on top of the display for selfies, while on the back there’s a 13-megapixel main shooter and a VGA depth sensor.
Now, let’s take a look at what’s under the hood. The new Itel P40 comes with a 1.6GHz UNISOC SC9863A processor, which consists of eight Cortex-A55 cores, with IMG PowerVR GE 8322, and can be had with either the three RAM and storage configurations: 7GB/64GB, 6GB/32GB, and 4GB/64GB. The mentioned RAM already had the Memory Fusion Technology applied. Chances are, the physical RAM is at 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB.
What’s more, the device also gets to have a fingerprint scanner, face unlock, and runs on the efficient Android 12 Go Edition.
The Itel P40 has a starting price of INR7,699 (~Php5,100) in India. Release details in the Philippines are yet to be known.
