With the introduction of ‘Welcome Offer,’ Reliance Jio has revolutionized the 4G in India. As a result, demand for 4G smartphones in the country has almost doubled in the last three months (and is only increasing with time). As people start using more and more smartphones, the need for smarter techniques to protect the sensitive information that people store on their devices also increases. And that’s exactly where fingerprint scanners come in.
Not very long ago, fingerprint scanners on smartphones were deemed to be a distant dream. Cut to now, they are not only a dream come true but also a standard. And we are not talking only flagships here; one can easily spot many smartphones with the fingerprint scanner even under the sub-Rs. 9,000 category.
Here are four smartphones that come with fingerprint scanner along with support for VoLTE.
1. Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime
Best known to offer unmatched value-for-money, the Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime is one of the few smartphones that we would recommend without even having second thoughts in the budget segment. For what it’s worth, it features a Snapdragon 430 chipset, 5-inch HD display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage space, fingerprint scanner, support for 4G VoLTE and more. The smartphone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop based MIUI 7 and is backed by a 4,100mAh battery.
2. Coolpad Note 3 Lite
Coolpad is one of the first companies to introduce fingerprint scanner on smartphones under the Rs. 10,000 price category. It sports a 5-inch HD display, 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage space, 13MP primary camera, 5MP front camera and a 2500mAh battery to keep the device juiced up. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
3. Meizu m3s
First unveiled in June in China, the Meizu m3s made its way to India in October — just a couple of months ago. The smartphone is up for grabs exclusively on Snapdeal and is available in two storage variants — 2GB RAM/ 16GB storage and 3GB RAM/ 32GB of storage space. The highlight of the smartphone remains its 13MP rear camera, fingerprint scanner, 5-inch HD display, octa-core MediaTek processor, and much more.
4. Intex Cloud S9
The Intex Cloud S9 has a 5.5-inch HD display with a pixel density of 267 PPI. It comes equipped with a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737 chipset teamed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card. It packs an 8MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, 3650mAh battery and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box along with support for the fingerprint scanner and 4G VoLTE support.
