The Itel S13 now in Kenya: Specs, Price and Availability

Itel one of the phone brands under TRANSSION HOLDINGS has unveiled the Itel S13 smartphone in the Kenyan market. The Itel S13 is the brands latest device in the S series commonly known for their selfie cameras.

The Itel S13 is the successor of the  Itel S12 and comes with a bigger screen, a better resolution, better camera and design. It sports a 5.5 inches screen with its display resolution of 480 by 9600 pixels. The device is also Itel’s second smartphone to come with the latest AndroidTM Oreo (Go edition) after the A32F.

The internal storage is 8GB which can be expanded to 32B via a micro SD card. It also comes with a MediaTek MT6580 chipset on board, and a Quad-core 1.3 GHz processor. The RAM is 1 GB which I think is too little.
