Itel announces the Itel A32F

Less than two months after Itel announced its first Qualcomm Snapdragon phone (Itel S42), it has launched the Itel A32F which is an Android Oreo (Go Edition) powered device. If any brand needs Go Edition, Itel is definitely that brand. This is because they primarily target the entry level market and what better way to make entry level smartphones attractive than to ship with the second latest Android version?

Itel A32F core specs

  • Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition)
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB ROM
  • 2050 mAH battery
  • 2 MP front camera
  • 5 MP back camera
  • 5″ display
  • 1.3 GHz quad-core Mediatek processor

Right from the word GO, I knew Itel would go big on Android Oreo (Go Edition) because the markets they primarily operate in (India & Africa) are notorious for being price conscious. This will see much better penetration for Itel but I fear that people who encounter Go Edition phones might think they were built to do heavy stuff (and end up greatly disappointed) rather than optimized to make the most of their low end specs.

After reading a few comments online, its not surprising that some people insult Itel ‘for releasing such a rubbish phone’ despite the low ₦20,500 price tag. Had I not a Tech. background, I might have reasoned alike but knowing the idea behind the Go Edition project, its a welcome development that Itel has embraced it.

To the best of my knowledge, Itel has never rolled out an Android version update on any of its models neither does this model have project treble support so I won’t exactly hold my breath for regular updates but its a good step all the same; Security is meeting Price in the middle.

What’s your take on the Itel A32F? Would you buy it?

    Hello Mista man..why will you say such thing..which one has your generation produced…

    FAM! Itel A32F is highly durable, 1GB RAM with Android 8.1 Go edition Oreo. with the Android 8.1 Go edition and 1GB RAM, will serve the work of you so called 2GB RAM..No hanging, operation is very fast.

    Even the Camera act like 13mp but mistakenly put as 5mp.. talking from fact.. that’s what am using to write this Bought it on Monday and I come across this today.

    It cost just #20,500 compared to other phones with finger print that cost more than #30,000.

    Do not be deceived by people’s comments. They haven’t tested any of Itel products.

    • You need to have read some of the comments I came across online. My guess is that they don’t really know about Android Oreo (Go Edition) so 1GB RAM would be God forbid to them.
      I need you to clarify the chipset the phone runs on (i.e MT****) because I’ve come across conflicting info online.
      You can use this app @ to check
      Also, how’s the phone’s temperature during charging and phone calls?
