Bangalore-based consumer technology company Creo has officially announced the Mark 1 smartphone in India. It will be available via Flipkart and CreoSense website at a price of Rs 19,999 in a Gun Metal Black variant.
The main USP of the device is its Fuel OS, which the company promises to update every month. In addition, the company is offering 100-odd service centres, powered primarily by HCL Care. Users can also engrave a 40-character message on the side for orders made on the company website.
In terms of specifications, the device features a 5.5-inch QHD display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution along with Gorilla Glass for protection. It is powered by a 1.9GHz True OctaCore MediaTek Helio X10 processor paired with 3GB RAM. It will include 32GB of internal storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB via microSD card.
The new smartphone will come equipped with a 21MP rear camera along with PDAF and LED flash that can record videos in slo-mo and 4K resolution as well. Towards the front, we get an 8MP front facing camera which can also record 1080p resolution videos. The device runs Fuel OS, a heavily skinned version of Android Lollipop. A 3100mAh battery completes the package. The company claims that there are 106 support centres in 96 cities across India and is targeting to reach 300 centres in the coming months.
Sai Srinivas, CEO & Co-Founder, CREO said, “We’ve been working long and hard to put out a product that redefines the way we look at hardware. In our fearless endeavor to make a smartphone that is more than just the sum of its great specs, we’ve built FUEL - an Operating System that’ll give a new phone experience every month, with features that deliver on both, performance and functionality.” He further adds, “What makes these features better every month, is the first-of-its-kind, community inclusive update system that stems from feedback and suggestions from users. With their invaluable input, we will be able to deliver on our promise of making Android better.”.
