4. 10.or G Smartphone Launched in India:
Recently a Chinese brand named as 10.or (pronounced as Tenor) entered in Indian smartphone market by launching 10.or E smartphone. Now this week they launched a new smartphone named as 10.or G. This is budget mid-range phone which competes with Redmi Note 4 in terms of specs to price ratio. It has some decent specs for the price like Snapdragon 626 processor, 4000mAh battery, and Dual Camera Setup. But as of now we are not recommending anyone to try out this phone, that’s because it’s a very new & sort of unknown company for Indian market. And over the past 1 year we have seen many new Chinese OEMs entering in India and making their way out right after 4-5 months of the launch, and then the early buyers of the phone has to suffer for customer service.
