Phicomm, the Chinese smartphone brand, appears set to launch its new entry-level Energy E670 smartphone in India. Priced at Rs. 5,499, the Phicomm Energy E670 is now available to buy from e-commerce site Snapdeal. We can expect an official announcement soon.
The highlight of the Energy E670 smartphone is that it supports both 1800MHz (Band 3) and 2300MHz (Band 40) LTE bands used by telcos to provide 4G services in India. At this price, the Phicomm’s latest smartphone will be competing against the popular sub-Rs. 10,000 handsets such as the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and the Motorola Moto E (Gen 2) 4G.
It’s worth noting that the latest Phicomm Energy E670 shares its innards with the Phicomm Energy 653 which was launched last year. There is only big difference that the Phicomm Energy E670 packs twice the memory than the Energy 653 smartphone.
The Energy E670 smartphone supports dual-SIM and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. It comes with a 5-inch (720×1280 pixels) HD IPS display and offers a pixel density of 294ppi. The smartphone is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909) processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. It comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable via microSD card (up to 64GB). The handset sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, while there is a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera also on board.
On the connectivity front, the Phicomm Energy E670, apart from 4G, offers 3G, GPRS/ EDGE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB, and Bluetooth options. The smartphone packs a 2300mAh battery. It measures 144x70x8mm and will be available in Black and White colours.
