MPTech has released a new smartphone, myPhone CITY XL. It costs a little less than a hundred and fifty dollars, but it offers everything that an ordinary user needs, so it can be quite popular among customers.
myPhone CITY XL is equipped with an IPS display with a diagonal of 5.5 inches and a 16: 9 aspect ratio that has HD resolution, that is 1280 × 720 pixels, with a density of 267 ppi. In front, it is covered with a rounded glass 2.5 D. It’s a pity that the frames around the display are really huge, in many equally budget smartphones competitors are much smaller, and some even have panels with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 (2: 1).
The heart of myPhone CITY XL is the four-core MediaTek MT6737M 1.3 GHz (4x ARM Cortex-A53, 28-nm) with the Mali-T720 MP2 graphics chip, 600 MHz. I must admit that this is a pleasant surprise. Just looking at the price of this smartphone, I thought that inside should MediaTek MT6580 (4x ARM Cortex-A7; 28 nm) sit with Mali-400, and here, please, such a pleasant surprise. In addition, the device also has 2 GB of RAM type LPDDR3 and 16 GB of internal memory with the ability to expand using a microSD memory card (maximum capacity of 64 GB).
What else will please myPhone CITY XL?
On the back of the smartphone is a single camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels with auto focus, HDR and the ability to record video in 720p at a rate of 17 frames per second. I do not like that the manufacturer went for a little trick, because at first glance it seems that the camera module consists of two lenses. Honestly, I do not know what is in the second hole, most likely it’s the second flash.
Above the screen myPhone CITY XL is a camera with 2 megapixels, as well as a diode flash. Communication in the smartphone provides such modules: Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n 2.4 GHz, LTE, GPS, A-GPS, connectors: for headphones 3,5 mm and microUSB. There is also an FM radio, an LED indicator, a fingerprint scanner in the Home key, of course, a slot for two SIM cards (standby mode, 2x micro SIM). The device is running the operating system Android 7.0 Nougat and draws energy from a battery capacity of 2900 mAh. The phone has the following dimensions: 157 × 77.4 × 8.25 mm and weighs 172 grams.
On sale will be available only one version of silver color with a black front. The price of myPhone CITY XL is 147 dollars. The smartphone can be purchased, including through the official website of the manufacturer.
