Amazon-backed phone maker, 10.or has today introduced the successor to one of its budget handsets in India — the 10.or D2. The new phone comes with a splash-resistant exterior, quad-core processor for a starting price of Rs 6,999. It will be available exclusively from Amazon starting from August 28th, while the Amazon Prime users will be able to purchase it a day early.
The 10.or D2 comes with a 5.45-inch screen on the front with a resolution of 720p and an aspect ratio of 18:9. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 425 chipset, the same one found on its predecessor and a 3200mAh battery, 300mAh less than the 10.or D. There’s up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage which can be expanded through a dedicated MicroSD card slot.
On the rear, you will find a 13-megapixel f/2.0 lens and on the front, a 5-megapixel selfie snapper is available. Both of them are assisted by a single LED flash. One of the biggest drawbacks is the absence of a fingerprint sensor and a software-based face unlock feature. The software is a stock build of Android 8.1 with minimal bloatware. There are two color options to choose from — Beyond Black and Glow Gold.
Commenting further on the launch, Noor Patel, Director – Category Management, Amazon India stated, “The 10.or D2 is a “Crafted for Amazon” device that combines world-class manufacturing with high reliability & quality standards and is built with insights generated through our engagement with customers on Amazon.in. Our partner Huaqin Technologies, with several learnings from its predecessor 10.or D, has manufactured this second-generation smartphone exclusively for customers on Amazon.in. The smartphone offers top-notch specifications at a very competitive price, adding to the industry-leading exclusive mobile phone selection on Amazon.in.”
