Jaima InterContinental Pvt. Ltd (JIPL), launched OTTO Mark today in an event at Tamrakar Complex, New Road. The event seemed a little confusing right from its title “Loot2 presents OTTO Mark”. Was it a phone launch or a movie promo? Well, that’s the question I couldn’t have an answer to even after attending the event.
OTTO Mark (Specs Breakdown)
The Otto Mark is a metal unibody phone made from aluminum alloy that is 8.6mm thick. It has a 6-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280*720. Hence the display has 245PPI. Since Human eye can discern granular details under 300PPI, you can read individual pixels in this phone if you want to. Just keep in mind, bigger is not always better. The phone comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM which sounds impressive considering its price segment.
For phone photography enthusiasts, the camera units sound promising on paper with 13MP at back and 8 MP on the front. This huge screen phone is backed with a considerably huge battery of 3845mAh. The phone supports fast charging of 5V, 2 Amp. The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with an unknown skin layered on top.
Like many phones these days, Otto Mark does come with fingerprint sensor with 360-degree recognition. This sensor claims to unlock the phone at 0.3 seconds at the fastest. For wireless connectivity, it has WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0. As far as other sensors are concerned, it comes equipped with GPS/A-GPS and Gyro-Sensor for VR gaming. This dual Sim phone supports 4G LTE, 3G WCDMA, and 2G GSM. The phone comes in color options of Space Grey and Champagne Gold.
Did I miss something in this specs breakdown? Well, I did, I know. Actually, they missed mentioning the name of the processor used in today’s launch event. Somehow, I managed to find out that MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz is used in OTTO Mark. Is this processor something to be ashamed about? How can they miss announcing the microprocessor name at the launch event? I’ll rather leave these questions unanswered.
Launch Event Review
I had been to the launch event myself so how could I not write few words about how the event was. The event started a little late but started with a bang. Since the event was a two-in-one i.e. Movie Promo and Phone Launch. At least, that is what I believe. It started with a dramatic entry of two actors from movie LOOT 2. If gathering some crowd was the primary objective of the launch event, they were successful in doing that. However, the event went out to be longer than expected and wasn’t that clean looking. I wish they managed to have a heightened stage.
OTTO brand in a smartphone is something I never heard before. I tried googling it after coming back to the office to find out more but couldn’t find a thing. No international official website, no mention in Wikipedia, just nothing other than a website which seemed still in construction: Otto Phones’ Website
So if you think it’ll be a safe bet to trust an emerging brand then you can buy Otto Mark at a price of NRs. 19,996. Considering its specs on paper, it seems to be a good buy. But, how well it will perform in real-life is something we can say only after having our hands on it very soon.
