Itel mobile India has today expanded its smartphone lineup with the unveiling in India of a new member of the itel S series of smartphone — itel S21. The Itel S21 isn’t another iPhone, galaxy killer nor another bezel-free phone, it is targeted at the young users who can not afford what it takes to get the trending classic smartphones.
What is interesting about the itel S21 is the fact that it is targeted at users who care much about selfies and photography. It is a dual selfie camera affair for the Itel S21, the maker is, in fact, marketing the device as India’s first and only smartphone to offer a dual front camera set up under the Rs 6,000 price segment. We can not affirm that claim at the moment, but we do know that the newly launched Nokia 2 offers a monstrous 4100mAh battery at about the same price.
