What to expect from Itel’s latest Android phone set to be announced in three days

Latest Itel Phone

Itel has (in the last couple of days) been dropping hints on a new device to be launched. Recall we’d recently posted a review of the Itel it1513 launched last year. Its 3 days to go and here’s what we know about this mystery model so far:

  • 5.5″ HD IPS display
  • 1.6 mm Bezel
  • 1.3 GHz Quad-core Cortex A7 Processor
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • Black, Rose Gold & Pure Gold colors

Here are a couple of shots:

From my experience with Itel phones (I’ve used quite a number for Spreadtrum Android projects), I’m not expecting much of a deviation from existing models. To help predict the specifications of this new model, let’s do a parallel comparison of their last five models.

** OTG Reverse Charging support

What to expect

What first caught my attention was the thinner than normal Bezel. Outside that, I don’t expect much outside a:

  • Spreadtrum SC77xx chipset (I don’t think it’ll be Mediatek)
  • 480×854 resolution
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB ROM
  • Launch price < ₦28,500
  • 3000 mAh battery or less
  • 5.0 or or less on Primary and Secondary cameras
  • No 4G LTE support
  • No USB Type C or OTG reverse charging


The specs above are not the official specs. They are just my projections based on Itel’s release pattern. I could be wrong on any or all and will therefore drop the official specs once announced.


Disappointingly, its the Itel S31. Looking at the specs and design, I suspected it was the S31. Actually thought it would be a modification of the S31 with a little of the it1513’s specs.

Itel S31 specifications

  • The S31 has a 2400 mAh battery
  • 5.0 MP primary and 5.0 MP secondary camera
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB ROM
  • Price ₦35,000
  • Chipset Mediatek MT6580W

At 1 day to go, they revealed that it has a 5.0MP front camera.
That prediction of yours is ticked


Turned out to be the S31.
Guess their Facebook page is behind
