Photo Announcement. Philips S20 - that

A Philips S20 smartphone is on sale in a Chinese store . When exactly it appeared there, I can’t say for sure. It is possible that at the end of last year. But not the point. Need to get acquainted. Getting to know modern Chinese state employees is good for our brains.

The chipset was taken by the well-known Unisoc Tiger T610. Those. in AnTuTu will be in the region of two hundred thousand points. Not so bad for such a cheap device.

What frankly pleases is the amount of memory. 8 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Plus card supportFive. (I want to believe that the RAM here is real, and not "extended", not a swap).

The screen is the most common, unpretentious. Diagonal 6.52" (103 cm²), resolution 720x1600 (269 ppi). Of course, there are no increased refresh rates.

The battery is slightly smaller than we would like, only 3900 mAh. No fast charging.

The cameras are simple. The front camera has a resolution of 5 MP. The rear camera looks like a double one, but what the second peephole is is not clear. Either a depth sensor, or just a glass. The resolution of the main camera is 24 MP.

There is Type-C, there is b�In-screen fingerprint scanner. The NFC module is not mentioned. Wi-Fi, most likely the fifth.

The Philips S20 is quite inexpensive. ¥699 (₽7090, $103) and ¥899 (₽9120, $132) for 8+128GB and 8+256GB respectively.
