Infocus India has introduced its latest flagship phone, the Epic 1, which will retail exclusively on Amazon.in in Gold color for 12,999 INR, starting from October 25, 2016. This is the first smartphone in India to include deca-core Helio X20 processor for an affordable price.
The Helio X20 SoC from MediaTek (MT6797M) is a tri-cluster chipset with 2 Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.1GHz, 4 Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.9GHz and another 4 Cortex A53 cores ticking at 1.4GHz. The presence of three different frequency cluster helps with optimizing battery consumption for different tasks and thus helps improving battery backup. This also helps the chipset avoid heating issues, which was a prominent drawback of the Helio X10.
The handset further includes a 5.5-inch Full HD LTPS display, 3GB RAM, and 32GB storage. For photography, Infocus Epic 1 relies on a 16MP primary rear mounted camera and an 8MP front-facing shooter.
