Closer look at the two latest Homtom budget arrivals


Few days ago Homtom announced their new lineup for the start of the new year and while there are more or less no surprises among the models, they are quite sure even the budget models can be successful. Today we will take a closer look at the Homtom HT30 and Homtom HT37.

Both phones belong to the ultra budget segment of the market the moment you look at the processor used, yes it’s the fan favourite MT6580 striking back. So the mobile data will be limited to 3G only. Both also have the same 8 Mpix rear and 5 Mpix front cameras and fingeprint scanners, which is a nice addition for such cheap phones.

The difference comes with the display and design, Homtom HT30 uses 5,5-inch 2.5D screen and quite uniqie fluff paint back case for soft and spongy handling feeling. On the other hand Homtom HT37 sports only 5-inch 2.5D screen, but has double speaker setup for better audio and colorful breathing lights on the body. It’s also special with the OS, because it’s first Homtom product to use their own special HT OS.

Both models should be available in the market very soon and the pricing will be surely set fairly low to stay competitive. For more information about Homtom models in general you can monitor the official Facebook page for the latest news.

    2017 seems the year of MT6580 (again). They should only use it for 20$ phones for developing countries, every single dollar more is wasted on this not-even-entry-level-anymore chipset.
