After about a week from its first introduction to the masses, we are now able to have a first look at the smartphone’s specs and final design, which for the joy of many, will be available in a red back cover variant; let’s check it out!
Does it remind you of any smartphone? Well, yeah.. It’s definitely an iPhone 7 Plus “inspired” phone to say the least, as many other dual camera phones have been lately. That said, the Gretel S55 does look sleek and the red and black color combo is quite nice to the eyes; the smartphone will also be available in Blue, Black and Gold.
On the back of the device we can see there are two cameras which the company states are an 8MP GC8024 + 0.3MP GC0310 image sensors, with one being wide angle and the secondary packing a telephoto lens with bokeh effect. Below the cameras we find a fingerprint scanner.
As far as specs go, the Gretel S55 comes with a 5.5-inch HD display coated in 2.5D curved glass and it’s powered by a Mediatek MT6580A processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage (expandable). The handset is dual SIM dual standby and works on 2G GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz and 3G WCDMA 900/2100MHz. Other than that, we find a 2600mAh battery and Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box.
We still have no idea how much the Gretel S55 will be costing but given the spec sheet we’re quite confident it’ll be under the $100 mark. Gretel say it’ll go on presale starting Monday, July 24; follow them on Facebook to know the latest.
