Without much fanfare, Tectoy announced, this Friday (18th), its first smartphone in Brazil. O Tectoy On is an intermediate phone with Android 10, triple camera, 6.22 inch screen and 4,000 mAh battery. The model hits stores with a price of R $ 1,999. According to the company’s website, deliveries begin in the second half of October.
Before, it is important to explain some points of this phase of the brand. On, in fact, is not 100% of Tectoy. In an interview with Reuters, Valdeni Rodrigues, president of Tectoy, informed that the model will be produced in the Manaus Free Trade Zone in “partnership with a Chinese supplier”. This is TCL Technology, as revealed by Anatel’s approval documents discovered by Everton Favretto, from Insert Card.
Tectoy On has three cameras
Even with a high price, Tectoy On has a technical file that draws attention. The photographic set consists of three lenses, the main one being 48 megapixels; the front, in turn, is 8 megapixels. Internally, Tectoy On received an octa-core processor, whose model has not been revealed, there are still 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
Complete the specifications: NFC technologies, Bluetooth 5.0, IPS HD + screen, fingerprint reader and dedicated button for Google Assistant. It is worth mentioning that On is not necessarily a “novelty” in the market, because it is identical to Alcatel 3L.
Tectoy On has Bluetooth headset in the box
The main differential of the intermediary is inside the box. Tectoy will sell the On with Qualcomm chip Bluetooth Earbuds headset. Again, the company did not share details. The charging case is available in black and must be powered via micro USB, since the device also received this connector and not USB type C.
Like Philco, Tectoy sends a silicone protective cover and a protective film. Betting on the segment, Rodrigues says that the company’s objective is to “conquer 5% to 10% of the Brazilian cell phone market” in the coming years.
