iVOOMi, the company known for launching smartphones in the budget smartphone category has launched a new smartphone dubbed as the i2. This smartphone is priced at Rs. 7,499 and packs in design cues from many popular smartphones available in the market. For its asking price, can the iVOOMi i2 really stand out from the competition? Let’s find out.
Design and Display
The iVOOMi i2 looks similar to quite a few smartphones that are already available on the market. On the back, the color hue that is reflective and aesthetically attractive can be found on some high-end Honor devices. The camera bump on the back looks strikingly similar to what the iPhone X has. On the front, the smartphone has a modern looking FullHD+ bezel-less display having an 18:9 aspect ratio. The display spans 5.45-inches across covering most of the front side of the phone.
Performance and Storage
Underneath its hood, the iVOOMi i2 is powered by the MediaTek MT6739 processor which is clocked at 1.5GHz. It is supplemented with 3GB of RAM to aid in multi-tasking and handling processes. The phone should be able to handle most daily tasks, however, if you are looking to do heavy gaming, the smartphone probably won’t be able to cope up that well. On the storage side of things, the iVOOMi i2 will ship with 32GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 128GB through a microSD card.
Camera and Software
For the shutterbugs, the latest offering by iVOOMi features a dual rear camera setup comprising of a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. On the front, the phone integrates an 8-megapixel selfie shooter which is capable of capturing good images in well-lit conditions. In the software department, the smartphone will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
Connectivity and Battery
As far as connectivity goes, the phone checks all the right boxes and offers support for 3G, 4G with VoLTE, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. Apart from the dual cameras and bezel-less display, another highlight of the phone has to be its huge 4,000mAh battery unit. This should last you well through a day without breaking a sweat.
The phone seems like a strong contender in the budget smartphone category, barring the fact that it may not be the best device if you play games or run graphics-intensive applications on a regular basis. The phone will be exclusively available through Flipkart.
