About the Phones
C1 (Rs 5,400), C1 Lite (Rs 4,340) and C2 (Rs 6,300) are the cheapest trio among the five. All three handsets have the same display – 5.34-inch delivering FWVGA+ resolution (480p x 960p) – along with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage for the C1 and the C2. The C1 Lite comes with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage. The storage in all 3 phones can be expanded up to 128 GB though, which is good.
Secondly, the C1 features 8 MP back and front cameras while the C2 features 8 MP back and a 5 MP front camera. The C2 Lite has a pair of 5 MP back and front cameras. A fairly simple module, of course. Another thing that the C1 and the C2 share is the battery, which is 3,000 mAh unit, while the C1 Lite comes with a 2,700 mAh unit.
The X1 Dual, which is the most expensive of the lot Rs 10,500, comes with a MediaTek processor MT6737H, and gets 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. The display measures at 5.7 inches which throws HD+ resolution (720p x 1440p). At the back, there’s a dual camera setup with 13 MP + 8 MP lenses where the secondary lens is a wide-angle unit. What is interesting is that there’s a dual camera module at the front as well with a pair of 13 MP lenses.
The X1 Dual runs Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box and is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery. On the other hand, the E1 Selfie (priced at Rs 8,400), as the name suggests, is a selfie-centric phone. It has a 13 MP front camera as well as a 13 MP main camera at the back. The displays is slightly smaller at 5.43 inches but delivers the same HD+ resolution. The battery is also same as the one in X1 Dual, which is a 3,000 mAh unit.
