Airtel Red Smartphone Quick Look & Specifications

I walked into an Airtel shop. I know they have very nice deals but what particularly caught my eye is something called the Airtel Red Smartphone.

So this phone was announced back in February. It is aimed for Pan African Markets. Currently, it is already available in Uganda and Tanzania. And maybe in some West African countries. Tell me if you are reading this from West Africa.

Safaricom have their own Neon smartphone and the Neon Tablet. I didn’t really like either of the two. But coming to think of it, they are good for first time users or people on a budget. What exactly is the Airtel Red? Here’s the pamphlet I took from the shop:

It is a red phone. Literally. The phone theme is red. Red icons. Red.

It comes pre-loaded with Airtel Services and certain Android Apps like WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Hangouts etc.

Let me lay out the specs for you:

  • It is a 3.5 inch display gadget. Screen resolution is 320×480 pixels. And I must say, it looks like some of those Nokia phones.
  • It has a 1.2GHz Dual Core Qualcomm Processor. RAM is 512MB while internal storage is 4GB. Storage can be expanded with an external SD card up to 32GB.  It runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat.
  • The back camera is 3MP while the front camera is 1.3MP. I haven’t seen any user reviews online so I don’t know what types of photos these cameras would take.
  • Battery is 1300mAh. Yep. A meagre 1300mAh in 2015.

If you have, or know anyone who’s used the device, tell me how you found it. Seems interesting. Share any extra information you have of the device with me, please.

I don’t know its price yet because the pamphlet I took didn’t mention it. But I bet you it is less than 10K. About Ksh. 5,000.

Here’s my list of best devices under 10K in Kenya in July 2015.
