The srtphone is said to be the first ever signature series of Tendulkar for any brand. While the cricketer has been associated with a dozen brands before, it will be the first one-of-its-kind partnership with Smartron for a smartphone. BGR India recently caught up with Tendulkar and asked him about his experience with Smartron. You can read the excerpts from the interview here.
Tendulkar recently started a new campaign where users have the chance to meet him in person on the launch of the smartphone on May 3. As of now there are not many details available about the anticipated srt.phone. Even the company tweet doesn’t reveal much other than the date and ‘mastery at the core’ as the catchphrase. Now, this also suggests that the said phone could be focussed on chipset and performance.
However, if we look at the existing lineup; Smartron t.phone features a super AMOLED full HD display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC with 4GB of RAM. The Smartron t.book, on the other hand, is a Windows 10 powered hybrid laptop that aims to take on the Microsoft Surface at an affordable price.
Smartron was most recently in the news for signing a 3G and 4G patent license agreement with Qualcomm, allowing the company to develop, manufacture and sell WCDMA, CDMA2000 and 4G/LTE devices.
