Prism Technology Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributor of InFocus Smartphones for Nepal, has launched InFocus Epic 1 in Nepal. The phone priced at NRs. 31,999 has a lot to offer including a deca-core processor. In this post, we’ll be breaking down all the specs of the Infocus Epic 1. Here’s everything you need to know about the first phone in the family of Epic series from the Infocus.

Before talking about anything else, let’s dive right into the biggest highlight of this phone. And, that’s the MediaTek Helio X-20 deca-core processor.

What makes Helio X-20 different than the rest?

First thing’s first. It is the first deca-core processor for smartphones. Not just the 10 counts of the CPU cores, but the real deal breaker is its Tri-Cluster CPU architecture. This Tri-Cluster is designed as Dual-A72 @2.0GHz + Quad-A53 @1.9GHz + Quad-A53 @1.4GHz. This cluster configuration can be explained using the gears we use in vehicles. More the gears, greater the fuel efficiency in the vehicle. The same way, this tri-cluster configuration makes Helio X-20 be a more powerful and more power efficient than the dual-cluster one. Less powerful tasks like sending a text will use the power-efficient clusters. Similarly, what triggers the powerful clusters is the power-hungry tasks like gaming and others. That way, Helio X-20 claims to have high performance and less consumption.

Coming back to what InFocus Epic 1 comes equipped with, the 5.5-inch screen soldier has the full HD LTPS display protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass. InFocus, claims the display to be a promising one as it works on Content Upscaling algorithm. This technology helps in getting good viewing experience even while watching low-resolution contents. Coming to the design, it is a unibody phone with brushed metal, curved back, and rounded edges. The rounded earpiece on the top is certainly going to work as a head-turner.

Under the hood, the Epic 1 is powered by Helio X-20 deca-core processor, Mali T880 MP4 GPU and the LPDDR3 RAM of 3GB. The inbuilt storage is of 32GB that is expandable up to 128GB.

The primary camera can shoot 4k videos as well. 3000mAh battery is fueling the device. The phone boots on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with In Life UI 2.0 layered on top.
