A budget phone from Itel. I mean, what else is there to say?
Itel has launched two new budget phones. The other is the P40 which is, in terms of design, a carbon copy of the POCO M5, and the other is the A60 which is more in-line with Itel’s design philosophy.
Unlike the P40, the A60 is even more budget-oriented. However, like the P40, the A60 caters to Indian users more. It features a 6.6in. HD+ (1612x720px) IPS LCD screen, a UNISOC SC9832E chipset paired with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage, a dual camera setup comprising of an 8MP Primary + VGA (really, how “Pro” can that get), as well as a 5MP selfie camera, and a 5000mAh battery charged via MicroUSB. This will not pass European standards clearly. It doesn’t have to be, it’s not the market for it.
The fingerprint reader placement is quite odd. It is placed beside the VGA camera. Probably a conscious design choice so you would think there would be more than two cameras here. It also has a MicroSD slot (up to 128GB) and runs Android 12 Go Edition.
Now available in India for INR 5,999 (~Php 4K) it is currently the most affordable Itel phones to date. It comes in blue and green. No word for release in the Philippines just yet.
