InFocus launched the Bingo 50 earlier this year, which was a Snapdeal exclusive with a price tag of Rs 7,499. InFocus has now quietly added another smartphone to its ‘Bingo’ series, called Bingo 50+. As the name suggests, the Bingo 50+ is an upgraded version of Bingo 50 featuring a better display, processor and camera. The smartphone is listed on company’s official website, but there is no word on the pricing or availability of the smartphone yet. When the smartphone goes on sale, one will be able to choose from silver and gold color variants. Also Read - InFocus launches phone with 'dualfie' capability in India
In addition to the specifications, one of the major changes on the Bingo 50+ is a full-metal body, which was missing from the previous model. This isn’t the first budget smartphone from InFocus to flaunt a full-metal body. The likes of the M680, M808 and M812, priced between Rs 8,000 and Rs 14,000, also come with a full-metal body. The Bingo 50+ also comes with 4G with VoLTE support, which we are seeing on an increasing number of budget smartphones and also makes it future-proof. The smartphone also runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 out-of-the-box, wrapped under InFocus’ InLife UI 2.0 Also Read - InFocus Vision 3 Pro with face unlock feature expected to launch on April 18
