After a brief pause in the industry, Infocus is back again with a new smartphone – M535+. Aimed specifically at selfie-lovers, the handset is an upgraded variant of last year’s M535. Alike any other product in the price range, the US-based OEM has tried to blend the right balance between specifications and cost.
For starters, the M535+ flaunts a 5.5-inch Full HD panel up front and sports a premium all-metal body measuring merely 7.2mm in thinness. Underneath, it runs on MediaTek MT6753 64-Bit Octa-Core processor clocked at 1.3Ghz, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with MicroSD expansion slot and a rather mediocre 2600mAh non-removable battery. Now coming to the highlight here, the M535+ comes with a 13MP front Samsung 3L2 sensor with autofocus and an another 13MP rear Samsung 3M2 sensor with a single LED flash. For software, Infocus has bundled Android Marshmallow and support for Dual SIM, 4G LTE, VoLTE. Additionally, they are giving away a free Selfie Stick worth Rs. 1000. Unfortunately, a fingerprint scanner is missing.
Commenting further on the launch, Sachin Thapar, Country Head, InFocus India, mentioned, “InFocus M535 has received tremendous response from the customers and has become one of the iconic models in the premium metal series. Riding on the popularity of M535 and further expand the metal series line-up, we have launched the new InFocus M535+ which is designed to cater to the pro-selfie generation who is looking for best camera, more power and style in their smartphone. With the powerful 13 MP front camera with Auto Focus on M535+, anybody can be a Selfie expert. Adding excitement to every selfie that you click, users will get a free Selfie Stick worth Rs. 1000 with every purchase of M535+.”
The Infocus M535+ will be available in Gold and Silver color variants at a competitive price of Rs 11,999. The device will go on sale starting on July 25th across offline retail stores. The M535+ will definitely attract customers due to its offline availability, however, in terms of raw hardware, there are better and considerably popular products already available.
