Chinese handset manufacturers have seen a recent surge in sales as consumers are starting to catch on to their low-priced devices. Huawei and Oppo are names most folks will recognize, but what about InFocus? The company has just announced a new smartphone called the InFocus M810, and it’s a device that’s surprising for more reasons than one.
InFocus has several smartphones in their arsenal, but the InFocus M810 is the latest and greatest. While we’re not a huge fan of the black & gold color scheme, the design is sharp and the device is thin coming in at 6.99mm. It has a large 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and it’s housed in a metal casing – no textured plastic here.
The InFocus M810 is a looker, and we’re pleased to report it has the specs to go along with that sleek design. Under the hood resides a Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The rear camera is a 13MP snapper with a Sony Exmor R sensor and a dual LED flash while the front-facing camera is a respectable 5MP.
A 2600mAh (fixed) battery will power the handset, and it will run Android KitKat 4.4.2. You can expect all the usual connectivity options as well including Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, Wi-Fi, and LTE. It’s really on par or better than the flagships from the major players when it comes to the specs, and the price is really what makes the InFocus M810 impressive.
The InFocus M810 will only cost $330 unlocked, but at this time it’s only scheduled for a release in the Taiwanese market. If you want one bad enough, you can probably pick one up through a third-party seller, but we hope to see the M810 get a wider release later in the year. Even if it stays in its homeland, InFocus is a company you’ll want to pay attention to if they continue to produce devices like this.
