Itel, a Chinese phone manufacturer company has unveiled its latest smartphone — “A70”. In this article, we will discuss the latest budget smartphone — Itel A70 in detail, including its specifications, features, availability, price in Nepal, and so on. Let’s proceed, shall we?
Itel A70 Overview:
Design and Display
In terms of design, the Itel A70 has taken the orthodox route with chunky camera cutouts on the back. The phone features text reading “AI” and “Matrix Camera” written on the camera island. It also has another text reading “Awesome Designed by Itel” on its lower half. It is available in four different colours: Brilliant Gold, Starlish Black, Field Green, and Azure Blue.
On the front, we are greeted with a 6.6” HD+ screen with a resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels. It has a waterdrop camera cutout and is capable of 500 nits of peak brightness. Furthermore, it has a touch sampling rate of 120Hz. The company has remained silent about the type of display, and refresh rate. However, we assume it to be an IPS LCD panel, and 60Hz respectively.
Under the hood, we are getting a Unisoc T603 octa-core processor. It is coupled with three sets of memory and storage configurations. The base model comes with 3GB RAM and 128 GB storage. Similarly, the remaining two configurations are 4 GB + 128 GB, and 4 GB + 256 GB. The base variant offers 5 GB of extendable RAM, whereas the other variants offer 8 GB. Furthermore, the Itel A70 offers an additional 2 TB support via a dedicated MicroSD card slot. It comes with Android 13 (Go edition) with Itel OS 13 on top.

Camera and the rest
The Itel A70 comes with three cameras altogether. It has three camera cutouts on the back, however, one of them is reserved as the flashlight. We are getting a dual camera setup with a 13MP sensor as the primary camera coupled with an auxiliary unit. Meanwhile, on the front, we have an 8MP camera for selfies. Itel has slapped AI on both the rear and front cameras for various reasons.
Powering the entire system is a 5,000 mAh cell with the “Power Marathon” feature. Similarly, in terms of charging, it can be juiced up by a USB Type-C cable. Moving on, we are getting dual-SIM support with 4G connectivity. The Itel A70 also has biometrics support and a dedicated side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Lastly, it features a 3.5mm headphone jack and has a gimmicky “Dynamic Bar” feature.
