With its intense focus on the Indian market, Amazon is expanding its 10.or (pronounced as Tenor) smartphone lineup with the release of a brand new device in the country. The 10.or D, as the device has been christened by the folks over at Amazon, from the looks of it is a low-end budget smartphone that packs decent specs. 10.or D has been launched under the ‘Crafted by Amazon’ program, where the e-tailer ties up with third-party OEMs to make the device.
To manufacture the 10.or D, Amazon has approached Shanghai-based Longcheer whereas both of its previous launches, namely 10.or E and G, were made by Chinese phone maker Huaquin Technology. It is an uber-budget device that has been launched to compete with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 5A and others in that price range. So, let us take a look at what 10.or D has to offer.
Amazon 10.or D Specifications
As you’d expect from a low-end smartphone, the 10.or D is powered by a Snapdragon 425 chipset with two RAM and storage options. You can either pick a 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant or a 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage variant. The device also includes microSD card support.
The 10.or D is made out of plastic and has a matte finish to the back, which should give it a decent look and feel. Amazon has included a 13MP rear camera, with LED flash and autofocus (AF), and a 5MP selfie shooter.
