Creo, a Bangalore, India based mobile phone startup launched their first smartphone Creo Mark 1. The Creo, unlike the other Indian smartphone brands, seems quite promising with their flagship model Mark 1. With the tag line like ‘A new phone every month’ and an amazing product launch they have already made their mark in the social networking sites as well as in blogosphere. Honestly, the Creo launch made me feel the same way what OnePlus did with their smartphones.
The Mark 1 comes loaded with FuelOS, based on Android, which assures an intuitive user experience on top of stock android. Like the name, the OS gets ‘refueled’ on monthly basis making your Creo Mark 1 feels fresh and brand new always. The dedicated team at Creo will push updates with great new features every month which makes the user experience more enjoyable and productive.
The phone comes with a 1 year warranty and offers nation wide service centers. There is an option to engrave your name, you heard it right, on side of the device extending the ownership to next level and bringing the device much ‘closer’ to you.
The phone feels premium in every angle, thanks to the aircraft grade alloy which is used for the outer shell. The device features a stunning 5.5inch Quad HD resolution display which has a pixel density of 534 ppi, 1.8 times that of what Apple has in their Retina display, offers a visual treat for the user. The display is further protected with the Gorilla Glass 3.
The heart of the device is an 8 Core (Octa Core) 1.95GHz MediaTek Helio X10 processor combined with PowerVR G6200 GPU. The device has a 3GB RAM and offers 32GB internal storage which can be expanded further using the memory card. The 3100mAh battery, which fire up components, will definitely offers a great standby time than most of the smartphones currently available in the market.
The Mark 1 features a 21MP primary camera with Sony Exmore sensor. The primary camera lets you shoot 4K video, Full HD slo-mo videos at 120fps, f2.0 lens and with a dual tone LED flash. The secondary camera, front camera, also features an f2.0 lens and allows you to record full HD videos at 30fps. The 86 degrees field of view lets you take better group selfies.
Along with all connectivity options like WiFi n/ac/b/g, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, GLONASS, BEIDOU, 4G LTE, the Mark 1 also features High Voltage Fast Charging, which offers 2hrs of talk time just within 10 mins of charge. For a price in India of Rs 19,990 it is definitely a value for money device. Plus, you gets ‘a new phone every month’.
