A new Energizer smartphone has been made official today. It's called E500S and right off the bat its most important spec seems to be the price: €99.99 SIM-free and unlocked.
It comes with Android Oreo (Go Edition), the special version of Google's OS that is optimized to run well on very low-end hardware. The E500S has 4G support (including VoLTE), an 8 MP main camera with LED flash, a 5 MP selfie shooter, and a 5-inch 800x480 touchscreen.
You get 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage, dual-SIM functionality, and a 2,000 mAh battery - which is frankly unimpressive from the brand that is associated with batteries in everyone's minds.
The phone is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek CPU, and it comes with a shock-proof cover in the box, as well as a tempered glass screen protector pre-applied.
If you want to pay even less, the Energizer E500 has the same specs except it's limited to 3G networking support. This goes for €69.99. Both models are available now wherever Energizer phones are sold in Europe.
There are literally lower priced phones for those specs. And you don't have to do some extensive research to find them now.
