Comio India, part of Chinese firm Topwise Communication, on Monday launched two new handsets in the price segment of Rs. 6,000 to Rs. 9,000.
Earlier the company had launched a 4000mAh battery smartphone dubbed Comio C2 with 4G VoLTE. The Comio C2 features a 5-inch HD (720 x 1280 pixels) IPS display. Inside it packs a 64-bit quad-core Mediatek MTK6737 processor with 2GB of RAM.
Just like Comio C2, the company has additionally tied-up with Reliance Jio which offers packages with additional 4G data benefits with Comio C1 and Comio S1. Topwise Communication, known for specialisation in R&D and manufacturing, have deputed engineers from China to train and monitor the assembly process at the manufacturing facilities in the country to match their global standards.
“Within a short time span since our national launch, we have come back to our consumers with ‘Made in India’ smartphones. This is in-line with our long-term vision for the Indian market and a step closer in achieving our goal of becoming leaders in the mid-segment smartphone category,” said Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, CEO and Director, Comio India.
These devices run on a quad-core 64 bit Mediatek chipset, has 32GB internal memory and are 4G VoLTE-enabled.
The Comio C1 has 5-inch HD IPS display and 8MP autofocus with flash rear camera with 5MP selfie camera, whereas the Comio S1 houses 13MP rear camera and 8MP selfie camera. The S1 features a 5.2-inch HD IPS display, front fingerprint sensor, 2GB RAM and a 2700mAh battery.
One of the interesting feature in the smartphones is when someone tries to unlock the device by trying to break the pattern or PIN, the device will automatically take the image of the unauthorised person.
Comio India aims to manufacture nearly one million devices over the next six months through its contract manufacturers – V-Sun and Hipad Technology.
The company also plans to strengthen brand presence with a network of 30,000 retailers, 800 distributors and over 800 after-sales touch points.
