In December last year, 10.or introduced the 10.or G (review) budget Android smartphone at a starting price of INR 10,999. It now appears 10.or may be working on a direct successor to the 10.or G, likely dubbed 10.or G2. The smartphone has been spotted on the popular Geekbench benchmark database, running on a powerful Snapdragon 660 AIE 14nm processor under the hood.
10.or G2 Geekbench Listing Reveals Snapdragon 660 SoC, 6GB of RAM
According to the Geekbench benchmark listing, 10.or G2 will be running on a Snapdragon 660 processor, a serious upgrade over the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor powering the 10.or G. Apart from a significantly more powerful chipset, the 10.or G successor will be a huge upgrade in the memory department as well. While the 10.or G is available in 3GB and 4GB RAM variants, the 10.or G2 will be offered with up to 6GB of RAM. On the software front, 10.or G2 will be running on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box.
In the camera department, we can expect the 10.or G2 to feature a dual-camera setup at the rear. The current 10.or G features a 13MP + 13MP dual-camera setup on the back. For selfies, the smartphone has a 16MP snapper on the front, so the 10.or G2 will probably have an equally impressive selfie camera. Battery life is another area where we expect the 10.or G2 to be highly impressive. The 10.or G packs a large 4000mAh capacity battery, which allows it to deliver pretty impressive battery life.
Until last year, the Snapdragon 660 SoC was mainly found powering mid-range smartphones priced above INR 20,000. Now, however, there are quite a few budget Android smartphones powered by the chipset below INR 20,000. The most affordable smartphone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset currently is the Realme 2 Pro, which starts at INR 13,990 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. Some of the other budget Android smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 660 chipset include the Vivo V9 Pro, and the Android One Xiaomi Mi A2.
