That’s the sound of Sachin Tendulkar fans clicking ‘buy now’.
We’ll soon find out if it performs like its inspiration but, hey, SRT fans won’t care. Yes, the Smartron SRT phone is now on sale at Flipkart (for ₹13,999). The 5.5in Full HD screen gets 4GB RAM and 64GB storage - add to that the bonus of unlimited T.Cloud storage and a Snapdragon 652 processor, and you should like it even if you don’t care about cricket. Then there’s a 3000mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner, a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP selfie camera. Oh, and there’s NFC as well - not bad for a mid-range phone!
Meanwhile, Android purists should rejoice at the thought of getting near-stock Nougat 7.1.1. Smartron’s also promised ‘at least 2-3 major updates’ along with quarterly security patches - an area where even uber-expensive flagships let you down. But it’s also called the ‘SRT phone’ for a reason. So you get a back cover with SRT artwork along with select (we’ll say we were disappointed that there were only that many) cricket-themed wallpapers that should lend you a sense of bonding with your God too, if you’re into that kind of thing.
Well-specced and it’s named after the legendary SRT? Head over to Flipkart and add it to your cart right away.
