The 10.or D2 is the successor to the last year’s 10.or D which was a budget smartphone priced under Rs 5,000. The 10.or D2 highlights its 5.45-inch 18:9 IPS display with a resolution of HD+. This is the major upgrade from its predecessor while the rest seems to be similar.
In terms of design, it has polycarbonate build with curved edges on the back. There’s no 2.5D curve on the glass and you won’t find a fingerprint scanner on the phone which is disappointing since the predecessor with lesser price has it.
The phone offers a 13 MP f/2.0 camera on the rear side utilizing the Sony IMX258 sensor and a 5 MP f/2.0 selfie camera on the front side both aided by LED flash.
The 10.or D2 is an entry-level smartphone featuring a 1.4 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC. Moreover, there’s an Adreno 308 GPU to deal with gaming and a battery worth 3,200 mAh that lasts over a day.
