Transsion Holdings, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer that owns sub-brands like Tecno, Infinix, and Itel, has launched a new smartphone in India. Called Itel A44 Air, the entry-level smartphone is priced at Rs 4,999. It s available in three colors Blusher Gold, Elegant Blue, and Slate Gray and will be available across the country through select retail stores.
As the price would have you believe, Itel A44 Air features modest hardware specifications. The smartphone is powered by a 1.4GHz Spreadtrum SoC, paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, with support for microSD cards of up to 32GB in size. It features a 5.45-inch HD display, with a resolution of 480×960 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. However, there s no notch. The smartphone runs Android Oreo (Go Edition), which should make it well-suited for basic usage.
For imaging, the A44 Air features a dual-lens camera primary camera setup, with a 5-megapixel sensor and a 0.08-megapixel sensor. There s also a single-lens 2-megapixel sensor up front for selfies and video calls. The cameras even come with some AI-based enhancements. All standard connectivity options (e.g. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) are included in the mix, with a 2,400mAh battery rounding off the specifications sheet.
