New Delhi, May 31 | InFocus, the Portland, US-based maker of projection and display technologies, has launched its first devices in India eyeing the smartphone growth in the country. While one of the devices is a budget one (InFocus M2), the second smartphone is aimed at eating away the share of brands like Xiaomi. Here is a look at what InFocus M330 has to offer:

The M330 is in every way the M2’s elder brother. Be it screen size, camera, battery or connectivity, it is superior in every way except for the UI and other in-built software features.

The mid-range device, which also has two colour options – black and white – is 9.3mm (53.4mm x 78.1mm x 9.3mm) thick and weighs around 170 grams. It ships with a 3,100 mAH battery and offers dual SIM, dual standby mode.

The device gathers its juice from a MediaTek MT6592, Octa-core 1.7GHz CPU which uses way less power and can be in some ways compared to the higher range of Qualcomm processors.

So, users can expect good performance results. The octa-core processor comes with a quad-core Mali-450 GPU which is good at supporting graphics for heavy games. More juice from 2GB RAM adds to a smoother experience.

In the display section, the M330 sports a 5.5 inches sized screen which supports an IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280×720 HD. The internal storage is 16GB which is better than having 8GB. The storage can be expanded to 64GB with the help of a microSD chip unit.

The camera unit is upgraded and the 330 ships with a 13MP (4208 x 3120 pixels) with autofocus, 4x digital zoom and a LED flash unit. The front camera remains 8MP with a higher resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels.

Unfortunately on the connectivity front, the M330 does not show any improvement. It does not support 4G bands and is not LTE enabled. But again, given all the features at a price proposition of Rs 9,999, the phone makes for at least a test drive.
