Smartron, a Hyderabad and Bangalore-based tech-hardware company, has launched tphone, a 5.5” premium android smartphone, as part of its tronx ecosystem that includes all of its hardware, software, cloud, care, and community platforms.
tphone is an ultra thin smartphone with features like 64 GB expandable inbuilt memory, 13 MP main camera, 4 MP front camera, multi-touch with Gorillas Glass 3 with Apical Assertive Display technology. It has some unique features like superior noise cancellation technology, backed by inbuilt 4 mic array making voice conversation loud and clear at all times. Plus the surround sound is supported by the specially designed sound chamber with DTS premium sound & DTS PlayFi.
The tphone is priced at INR 22,999/– and will be available for registration on gadget360.com and smartron.com. The product will be available on sale early June 2016 on Smartron tstore and Gadget360.com.
Mahesh Lingareddy, ex-Intel and co-founder of silicon startup Soft Machines, launched Smartron in August 2014, which came out of stealth mode in March this year. At the same time, it announced Sachin Tendulkar as one of its key strategic shareholders, and also roped him as company’s brand ambassador.
The main idea is to build an India based global technology OEM (original equipment manufacturer) company, riding the Internet of Things (IoT) wave. “India has only focused on services over the last two decades while China though started off as manufacturing hub but lately become home to many fast growing brands like Lenovo, Huawei, Xioami and Alibaba to Baidu. A strong product ecosystem is the key to long term growth and value,” Mahesh said.
