It is no news to say that the smartphone market is already crowded, nonetheless, we still see some OEMs making effort to add to this list. One of the newest among such is Geotel who just officially made available their first handset, the Geotel A1.
This handset is aimed at the rugged spectrum and comes in with the right hardware to back up this claim. However, we notice with rugged phones that more efforts are concentrated on the hardware side of thing seeing them suck when it comes to their software.
That however, isn’t the case with this new phone as its manufacturer has paid special attention to the software as they have graced it with all of the goodies the new Android Nougat 7.0 operating system has to offer – see video below –.
Taking a look at the design, we see that it is rubberized to the core, shielding the display and the back panel as well. Also thrown into the mix is the IP-67 certification that keeps the handset water and dust tight at all times.
The innings however seems to be boring as it is being powered by MediaTek’s MT6580M entry-level chipset which is coupled up with 1GB of RAM and an internal memory space of 8GB. There is a 3,500mAh battery pack to fuel the phone as well.
Interestingly, it is pretty portable as it has a 4.5 inch Quad HD touchscreen display which has 2 megapixel selfie shooter just above it accompanying an 8 megapixel main camera on the rear panel of the handset.
With these specs, we see this handset asking for just $99.99 as its retailing price although we should see it ask for less with soon to come giveaways and promotions as well.
