TP-Link entering US smartphone market, gets Neffos Y50 phone certified by FCC

A decade back the overall scene of the smartphone market was much clear but now it is flooded with numerous OEMs, with Chinese companies dominating the numerical scene. Although it does give customers wider options to choose from, the fierce competition hasn’t done much to improve the overall quality. Wondering why we are discussing the market scene. Well, that’s because in the US it gets more crowded with the entry of yet another Chinese smartphone maker, TP-Link.

TP-Link is all set make its foray into the US smartphone market with its budget offering Neffos Y50 which has received FCC certification. Although the FCC listing doesn’t specify the spechsheet, it gives us a proper look at the phone with its detailed images showing the device from all angles, including the battery.

Launched last year, Neffos Y50 carries entry level specsheet. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 MSM8909 chipset clocked at 1.1 GHz, it carries Adreno 304 GPU for graphics. The phone features 4.5 inches TFT display with 480 x 854 resolution. Underneath we find 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 32 GB via microSD card.

On the imaging front, Neffos Y50 packs in 5MP rear camera with auto-focus and a 2MP selfie snapper. Amongst these low-level specs, the only silver lightning is the Android Marshmallow on board.

  1. I guess it was a bad idea to start off by making a phone with such low specs . Something a bit more higher would’ve been good to help them get popular

  2. it seems every electronic giant is trying to get into the smartphone market, we had Pepsi, Vodafone phones last year and now Tp-link also!! but at least the earlier two companies made great smartphones even if was their 1st try but this one looks more like a bad idea from Tp-link, given today’s market there r hardly anyone left who will try such a weak smartphone and that also from a company which is new in smartphone market!!

    1. I’ve read news of Salman khan entering into this too! And I’m not making this up! xD

  3. a phone with qualcomm 210 soc must be a basic phone good see in mobiles market.

  4. There is no play here. They are genuinely trying to make a good phone with low specifications at a budget price definitely. Maybe whatever basic functionality it comes with, it performs them well. Being a power user, It is easy for me or anyone else to start criticizing and judging smartphones for their specs but actually it doesn’t always matter. I still remember moto x and it didn’t have top of the line specifications and yet was one amazing phone that I wouldn’t mind using even now.
