We may not know HiSense for their smartphones all that well. But besides televisions, the Chinese company also makes quite good smartphones. And this time, at CES 2019, it has revealed quite an interesting phone. Dubbed the HiSense U30, this phone packs quite the interesting specs.
First, it packs Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GM1 48 MP sensor as the primary camera sensor at the back! What’s interesting about it is not only its large 48 MP sensor, but the ISOCELL technology is known for enhancing sharpness and detail in photos. So, the large resolution and ISOCELL technology is an interesting combo! The camera is also supported by 5 MP depth sensor as well.
As for the selfie camera, this phone, too, jumped on the display-hole train. It features a 20 MP shooter on the punch-hole. As for other aspects, it has a large 6.3″ Full HD+ display with very thin bezels. But surprisingly, as is the trend, this phone still has a rear-mounted traditional fingerprint sensor.
Under the hood, the phone is powered by the new Snapdragon 675 SoC. And this makes it the very first phone to do so. The Snapdragon 675 is a gaming-based octa-core chipset with considerable improvements over the Snapdragon 670. Besides that, the phone will have two RAM configurations – 6 GB and 8 GB, which seems to be the standard these days. But the storage is fixed at 128 GB. Also, there is no expandable option.
With a huge 4500 mAh battery and supporting Quick Charge 4.0+, this is turning out to be a very good phone in the paper. And combined with all the specs it has, we might be looking at an upper-class mid-range phone. The only questionable thing is that everything is packed in a “cow-hide” leather-ish type of design at the back. But this might be one more thing to make it look more interesting, maybe.
This phone will be officially launched in March and will be available in China, Russia and some parts of Europe. Pricing is under the veil for now.
