itel it1520 with 2GB RAM, 13MP Selfie Cam – Specs Review & Price

Itel has launched a new smartphone in India, a market it just ventured into, and the phone looks nothing similar to its products in Nigeria. Dubbed itel it1520, the smartphone comes with a 2GB RAM as against the 512MB that is its trademark in Nigeria. Just recently we were teased about the impending launch of the it1516 Plus with just 1GB RAM which doesn’t even come close. The device is projected as a selfie-focused smartphone, tagging along with it a cool 13-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash. The device is also said to come with an iris scanning feature which should likely be through the front camera because there seem not to be a dedicated iris scanner like the Samsung Galaxy S7’s.
