Speaking at the launch of the S21, Sudhir Kumar, CEO of itel & Spice Devices said, “[The] S21, like other products in our smartphone portfolio is a masterpiece. We have focused extensively on building market disrupting technologies and developing out-of-the-box innovations, and S21 is yet another example of our excellence in delivering aspirational value to our consumers.”
The S21 features a dual front camera setup comprising a 2MP and 5MP sensor with a 120 degree panoramic field of view. At the rear of the smartphone is an 8MP camera with auto-focus, face detection, and other picture enhancement features.
Coming to the memory, the S21 comes with 16GB of internal memory that is further expandable to 32GB. The smartphone also sports a 5-inch IPS screen that has blue-ray eye protection and sunlight display. The smartphone is 4G VoLTE and ViLTE-enabled and runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat). The S21 also has a fingerprint sensor with 360 degree readability, which itel Mobile says is hardly ever seen in this price segment.
Powering the S21 smartphone is a 64-bit Mediatek powered quad-core processor coupled with 1 GB RAM and a Mali-T860 MP1 GPU clocking a speed of 400 MHz. The phone comes in a metal body design.
