However Hisense thinks there’s nonetheless a marketplace for standalone track avid gamers, and its new Hisense Contact would possibly make you do a double-take.
The Hisense Contact is now to be had for pre-sale in China (h/t: Liliputing), and the track participant additionally packs a 5.84-inch e-ink display for longer battery lifestyles and a extra relaxed studying revel in. The display additionally provides 2,048 ranges of brightness and 36 ranges of colour temperature.
At the audio aspect of items, you’ll be able to be expecting twin stereo audio system, Dirac Energy Sound make stronger, an ES9038 DAC, and an ES9603 amp chip. In fact, the track participant additionally includes a 3.5mm port.
The Hisense Contact reportedly provides an unnamed 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon processor (believed to be an 11nm design), 4GB of RAM, 128GB of garage, a three,000mAh battery with 18W charging by way of USB-C, and Android 11. As the picture on the most sensible of the web page presentations, the track participant lacks a rear digicam setup, with the highest bezel internet hosting an unnamed selfie digicam.
Be expecting to pay 1,599 yuan (~$249) for the track participant, which makes it costlier than some first rate funds telephones just like the Redmi Observe 10 and the Poco M3.
