InFocus, the American company, has made a comeback to the Indian market after losing the plot to Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Lenovo, etc. InFocus has announced the Turbo 5 smartphone, which was listed online two days ago. The smartphone’s USP is the massive 5000mAh battery, which is rated to deliver two days of battery life with a single charge. Rest of the specifications are decent as well and are acceptable for the price tag.
InFocus has priced the Turbo at Rs. 6,999 for the 2GB of RAM variant, while the 3GB RAM variant costs Rs. 7,999. The device will be available in India from July 4 exclusively via Amazon in Mocha Gold and Pure Gold colour options.
The InFocus Turbo 5 also has support for Reverse Charging capability, which means that you can share your battery by charging other smartphones, like a power bank. The smartphone comes with a compact 5.2-inch HD display, packed with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and 2.5D curved glass on top.
It is fuelled with a 1.25Ghz MediaTek MT6737 SoC, paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage & 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The storage is expandable up to 32GB with a microSD card.
Having said that, it is the same smartphone, which InFocus launched last month in China- the InFocus M5s. The only change is that the M5s comes in only 3GB RAM/32GB storage variant, whereas the Turbo 5 comes with 2GB RAM as well.
The handset has a 13MP primary camera with autofocus and LED flash. Up front, a 5MP selfie camera helps you to make video calls.
InFocus has added connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and micro USB port. Also, it comes laden with latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS. The device weighs 165 grams and measures 9.0 mm in thickness.
The InFocus Turbo 5 also has a fingerprint scanner at the back. The phone will go against the likes of Redmi 4 in the same price segment. Which smartphone would you choose? InFocus Turbo 5 or Xiaomi Redmi 4? Let us know by commenting below.
