Tenor has been making waves in the Indian market, thanks to its business model of offering premium hardware at cutthroat prices. The company's premium model, Tenor G is now available for purchase at Rs. 12,999 (for the 4GB RAM model) and Rs. 10,999 (for the 3GB RAM model). For the asking price, the smartphone packs a punch in terms of specifications.
But Tenor G's has an uphill competition from Xiaomi Mi A1 (first impressions), which retails for Rs. 14,999, and offers similar hardware as the Tenor G. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is the Chinese company's first dual camera smartphone in India, and also the first smartphone to boot stock Android under Android One project, which makes it equally competitive to Tenor G as it also comes with near stock Android with promised software upgrades.
Specifications wise, the Tenor G has a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 SoC, up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, dual 13MP rear cameras, 16MP front-facing camera, and a 4000mAh battery. Tenor also promised Android Oreo update for the Tenor G by the end of 2017.
