Itel Mobile, a brand owned by Hong Kong-based Transsion Holdings that also owns the recently launched Tecno brand in India, launched a new budget smartphone in India on Tuesday. Called the Itel Wish A41+, it is an upgrade version of the Itel Wish A41 that was launched in India in March. It has been priced at Rs. 6,590, and will be available in Champagne and Mocha colour variants.
The Itel Wish A41+ is a dual-SIM (Micro+Micro) smartphone that runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It sports a 5-inch FWVGA (480×854 pixels) display with a pixel density of 196ppi. The smartphone is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor that’s coupled with 2GB of RAM.
