Philips has just announced the upcoming availability of the W732 Android phone. This is a mid-range handset that will be released in China and Russia in the following weeks.
There are no details on the phone’s price tag or availability, but we know Philips W732 will be launched in five color options: black, pink, white, green and blue.
The good news is the smartphone is powered by Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and it offers dual-SIM capability, which is so much praised in emerging markets like China.
Another selling point of the Philips W732
is the high-capacity 2,400 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 13 hours of talk time or up to 10.5 hours of web browsing.
Judging by the list of features mentioned earlier, Philips W7232 seems pretty solid. However, the phone’s hardware is far from being impressive. In this regard, the device is equipped with a 1 GHz single-core MediaTek MT6575 processor, which is complemented by 1GB of RAM.
We don’t have any information regarding the phone’s storage amount or whether or not Philips W732 sports microSD card slot for memory expansion.
It is also worth mentioning that the smartphone sports a more than decent 4.3-inch LCD IPS capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
There’s also a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and autofocus, but we’re not sure if the handset also comes with a secondary front-facing photo snapper for video calls.
In the connectivity front, Philips W732 is an all-rounder. The phone offers multiple options
, including HSDPA (7.2Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as built-in GPS receiver.
So far, sources close to the matter confirm the smartphone will be launched in China and Russia, but Philips might want to roll out the W732 globally.
