In some months to come, if you’re still using a smartphone with a 1 GB or 2 GB RAM, I’d say keep living in the past. This is not unconnected with the fact that most smartphone makers have decided to start upgrading their newest smartphones from those low RAM phones that have always been flying to 3 GB RAM and above.
Well, innjoo has not been left out in this scenario as they have after the previous version, released the Innjoo Pro 2 and just like the latest trends amongst other maker like Samsung, Gionee, they have decided this newest baby gets a 6 GB RAM.
Its not clear when they’ll be launching or unveiling the device, even if there are many pointers to the Customers Electronics Show (CES) 2017 coming up in some days time, or the World Mobile Congress coming up later in the year.
Without further ado, let me walk you through the specs of this great phone, and what I think about them. Be sure to let me know what you think about them too right in the comments box (we really do appreciate your comments). While we are, for now, just stay with me while we ride.
TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN
The device screen has a 5.5 inches full HD screen, precisely 1920 * 1080 pixels resolution which is an improvement on its predecessor. The screen size however did not feature an improvement, instead, it is smaller than the previous version, the Innjoo Pro. The phone is built with a metal aluminium design.
Seriously, I am beginning to detest the recent trend of degrading some smartphones specifications and features. If you claim to be released an upgraded version, it is meant to be better, not worse. And if it can’t be better, it should remain the same. Making lower spec phones as an “upgrade” shouldn’t be an option at all.
As expected, the phone supports the 4G LTE band. With the way this is going, in a very short time, any phone NOT supporting the 4G network won’t be glanced at twice, which would be a very nice development.
HARDWARE AND MEMORY
The Innjoo Pro 2 features an Octa-core 64 bit MediaTek MT6757 with 2.3 GHz processor speed. One of the major selling points of the phone, which Innjoo hopes to bank very largely upon is the 6 GB RAM. You can be rest assured of a multipurpose friendly smartphone.
The internal memory of the Innjoo Pro 2 is pegged at 64 GB but be sure it can be expanded up to 256 GB with the use of a micro SD card.
The device features a button by the side which lets you assign your favorite app. Once you press the key, it will serve as a shortcut to the app you choose which will be launched regardless of what you are doing on the phone at that point in time.
It is a very commendable one from Innjoo as the Innjoo Pro 2 boasts of a camera quality of 16 MP. It would surely be a lovely phone for the picture lovers. Selfie lovers are not totally neglected as their special camera, the front facing camera possesses a camera quality of 8 MP. It seems okay to me though, but I’ve also seen phones with the same camera quality for both the rear and front facing camera.
MULTIMEDIA AND CONNECTIVITY
The Innjoo Pro 2 still has the 3.5 mm audio jack, when will Innjoo join the ‘no headphone’ gang? I don’t even have an idea. Moving forward, Bluetooth is of v4.2, supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct hotspot, has GPS with A-GPS and USB Type-C.
The charging time for the 4000 mAh battery which the Innjoo Pro 2 possess is fixed at 2 hours, while the battery life when uing is 27 hours and standby time is 350 hours. It is pretty impressive as it can last you for over a day when using. The battery is non removable and power management is by Marshmallow’s battery saving mode.
While this phone was just released, it does not have a price tag yet but we’re speculating a little more or less than a N100,000 in Nigeria.
