Vertex Impress Stone - Android Go with a shockproof screen

Petersburg company Vertex presented a rather unusual smartphone.

Vertex Impress Stone in appearance, it seems, is ordinary,all that is in place: a double main camera, and an 18: 9 screen, and a fingerprint scanner. Not the flagship at all: the MediaTek MT6739 chipset, the RAM capacity is a measly gigabyte. The 8 GB drive is not even funny. The screen is very modest - a diagonal of 5.45 ″, a resolution of 480 × 960 pixels.

The battery on this background looks almost decent - 2700 mAh.

In general, it is not surprising that the smartphone is running Android Go.

It's amazing that it is equipped with an NFC-module (we already mentioned the fingerprint scanner) and supports dual-band Wi-Fi. In this respect, it is more interesting than the younger models of Huawei, for example.

But this manufacturer considers not the main chipmodels. The highlight of the Vertex Impress Stone is “shockproof glass”. Impressive, though, as usual, mechanical damage is not covered by the warranty ...

There is no price tag yet.
