On sale. Itel A49 - so beautiful, but so simple ...

In Russia, India and Pakistan, a simple Android Go smartphone called Itel A49 has appeared on sale. Here is such a beautiful blue coloring that will be sold on the Indian Amazon:

But these two colors will be available with us:

Look at the rear camera block. Rich, beautiful.Something painfully reminiscent. But no. The main module here has a resolution of only 5 MP (and another question is whether there is autofocus there). Nothing is said about the auxiliary camera at all. Either proprietary AI Lens with a resolution of 0.08 MP (to improve night photography), or a depth sensor ... Doesn't matter. In any case, it is clear that the camera from Itel A49 will turn out to be weak.

The front camera has the same resolution as the rear one. The same 5 MP.

Iron. 2018 Unisoc SC9832E chipset. This is 50-60 thousand points in AnTuTu. Those. weaker (by modern standards, of course) simply does not happen.

RAM 2 GB, permanent 32 GB. Support for memory cards, of course, is.

The screen is either 6.6″ or 6.56″.The resolution is either 720x1612 or 720x1600 (approximately 267 ppi, 105 cm²). What matrix is ​​also unclear. In some places they talk about IPS, in others - about the antediluvian TFT-TN. There is no increased refresh rate, of course.

4000 mAh battery.

Of course, there is no NFC module either. USB is an ancient Micro. Single band Wi-Fi. But there is a fingerprint scanner on the back.

Itel A49 is already on sale. I see it in DNS and in Onlinetrade. The price is the same, ₽9490 ($81.3).

In India, the smartphone will cost ₹6499 (₽9940, $85.1).

The first “first glances” have already appeared on the network, but so far only in languages ​​that are completely incomprehensible to me.
