Itel’s recently launched phones; the Itel A12, A51, P12 & P51 …. their prices, full features and specifications

Latest itel phones 2017

It’s no longer news that Itel has toned down featuring Spreadtrum chip in their phones in favor of Mediatek chips. It started from the Itel S11 and S31. The Itel 1513 features a Spreadtrum chip and is apparently one of the last Itel Spreadtrum phones we might be seeing; would’ve loved to see an Itel Nougat phone powered by SPD. In my previous Itel post, I took a look at Itel phones with 4G VOLTE support and will be looking at the recently released, launched or announced Itel phones to try get a sense of where Itel is heading (Specs-wise).

My Opinion

From the comparison above, Itel is still flirting with the Spreadtrum chipset and I suspect they might not ditch Spreadtrum entirely just yet. Maybe the low end Itel phones will still be powered by Spreadtrum chips (to make them cheap) while mid range phones will be powered by Mediatek chips. We’re yet to see a truly mid range Itel phone let alone a Flagship but Its OK, Itel seems to be after the low end market.

The Itel P51 is Itel’s first Nougat phone. Sadly, only the Android version stands out. The camera doesn’t because we’ve seen similar or better in the Itel 1511, 1518 & 1520 .

Have any Question or Comment?

i love this


I jst bought a new itel A12 bt it has been desplaying select Wi-Fi network since yesterday. I don’t even have access to the phone menu or Home page.
pls what should I do.


Have you tried doing a factory reset?


You said itel has toned down spreadturm but what about itel A51 with spreadturm platform


If you take a look at their most recent lineup ( ) then you’ll see that Itel is fast dropping Spreadtrum SoC for Mediatek

joe bobo

thats true,itel dropping spreadtrum to mediatake


They even tried Snapdragon with the Itel S42 so they might be dropping Mediatek later
