Tenor smartphones are going to be the next competition at least in the mid range segment of the Android market. The first-ever smartphone under the lineup is going to be Tenor E or 10.or E.
The Tenor E is priced at INR 7,999 in India which approximates to $125 for the global variant.
The device would be sold as an Amazon Exclusive in India via an open sale which is a good news considering how irritating these sales prove to be for interested buyers who somehow fail to buy the smartphone for reasons not so genuine.
Tenor (10.or) E smartphone: full specifications
Coming to the specifications of the Tenor E, the device has some pretty impressive features which can give a tough competition to the other mid-rangers. There is a 5.5in Full HD screen which is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 Protection. The screen has a resolution of 1920×1080 which gives out a pixel density of 403 ppi. The front of the device is wrapped up by a 2.5D curved glass which makes it very easy to hold and operate.
The rather big bezels are pretty much apparent and this could be one of the driving forces for the customers to choose the smartphones like the Micromax Canvas Infinity which offers a near bezel-less experience.
On the battery front, we get a 4,000 mAh battery which, as claimed by the company, would last for two days once charged completely. The battery, apparently, does not support fast charge which is not surprising considering the price point the Tenor E is being launched at.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset makes use of 2/3 GB of RAM to power the device. The 10.or E comes in 16/32 GB storage variants. The storage can be increased up to 128 GB with the help of an external SD card.
Coming to the camera, we get a 13MP primary camera with a CMOS sensor and PDAF. The front camera is 5 MP which comes with a front flash as well. How good or bad the front camera turns out to be is yet to be tested.
Tenor (10.or) E smartphone: Final verdict
While there is nothing too fascinating about the first smartphone of the Tenor smartphones, it is certainly not a bad choice of a mid-ranger either. The specifications look decent enough on the paper and the device could easily turn out to be a success for the company. The fact that Tenor is relying on Snapdragon chipsets makes the existence of the device all the way more relevant.
