iTel Mobile has announced the iTel P36 series, which is dubbed as “The Fashion King”. The series features the iTel P36 and the iTel P36 Pro LTE. From the name alone, you can spot one key difference between both devices. One has LTE/4G connectivity while the other doesn’t. Anyways, that isn’t the only specs that separate these two smartphones. We will find out more in this in-depth review of the two iTel phones. They are basically a rebranded version of the iTel Vision 1 which was released to the Indian market.
iTel P36 and P36 Pro LTE Key Specs
- 6.5″ HD display
- 1GB/16GB (iTel P36), 2GB/32GB (iTel P36 Pro LTE)
- 8MP + 0.3MP main camera
- 5MP selfie camera
- 5,000 mAh battery
- 10W fast charging (iTel P36 Pro LTE)
- 4G connectivity (iTel P36 Pro LTE)
They both feature a smooth plastic unibody with a stylish gradient colour. The series is arguably the company best so far in terms of the overall look. The waterdrop notch at the top front houses the selfie camera and at the bottom is a visible chin. At the back, we have a camera module that is similar to the iPhone 11. There is also a fingerprint reader at the back and iTel brand name.
The two devices sport the same 6.5-inch IPS LCD display panel. It features a 720 x 1600 pixel resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 272 pixels per inch density. The big display size will enable you to enjoy movies on the device and gives you that cinematic viewing experience.
Under the hood of the P36 is the UniSoC Spreadtrum SC7731E chipset with a Quad-Core processor clocking at 1.3GHz and ARM Mali T820 MP1 GPU. While on the Pro variant, we have the MediaTek chipset with a Quad-Core processor clocked at 1.8GHz and PowerVR GE8320 GPU.
The memory configuration on the P36 is 1GB RAM with 16GB inbuilt storage. Due to the low memory, the phone runs on the Go edition of Google’s Android 10 operating system. Whereas, the LTE version runs on the standard Android 10 OS thanks to its 2GB/32GB memory configuration.
The primary camera module is the same on both iTel phones. The module consists of an 8MP main lens + 0.3MP lens and a LED flash for taking photos in a low-light environment. The waterdrop notch on the display houses a 5MP selfie camera with face unlock system.
There is a 5,000 mAh battery capacity inside both iTel phones. The key difference in this category is that the P36 Pro LTE features a 10W fast charging support while the iTel P36 does not support any fast charging technology.
