Earlier today in New Delhi, Smartron officially unveiled the srt.phone, its first phone since the t.phone from last year. Before its launch, the device was already known for being a phone by Sachin Tendulkar, a revered cricketer, a strategic investor in the company and a brand ambassador for them as well.
The srt.phone comes with some respectably mid-range specs, with a Snapdragon 652 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The company is also offering unlimited cloud storage with their tcloud service, which is a good move.
Aside from that, the srt.phone boasts a nearly stock build of Android Nougat, and they also promise 3 major Android updates with with regular security updates. The device also packs in LTE SIM slots with VoLTE support and NFC support for good measure.

The other specs include a 5.5-inch full HD display, a 13MP main shooter with an aperture of F/2.0 and PDAF support. The front facing camera is a 5MP unit with a wide angle lens, while the battery is a 3,000mAh unit with quick charge 2.0 support and a bundled in 18w charger.
The device will be exclusively available on Flipkart, with the 32 GB storage variant being priced at ₹12,999 ($203) and the 64 GB variant price slightly higher at ₹13,999 ($219). Along with that, there are also two limited edition Sachin Tendulkar covers available as part of the launch offer on Flipkart.
This is honestly a fairly competitive device from the Indian smartphone manufacturer, which is surprising. While the pricing is on the higher end of mid-range devices, it’s not ludicrously overpriced, and there’s a decent amount of stuff included here. What are your thoughts on the srt.phone? Will it survive against juggernauts like the Redmi Note 4?
