August 2017 is turning into a month when QMobile simply won’t take a rest; the local smartphones manufacturer has released yet another entry-level smartphone, the Noir J1, and we’re really not sure about their strategy as they’re bombarding the market with smartphones that cost less than 10,000 rupees on a regular basis nowadays.
Build quality and display
Featuring an all plastic build with not so subtle finishing, the smartphone epitomizes what entry-level QMobile devices are all about. Its dimensions aren’t the prettiest either as we’re looking at an 8.3mm width and a 152g weight for a smartphone that doesn’t really offers anything.
A 5.0 inches capacitive touchscreen is probably one of its strongest points and its 240ppi pixel density can only offer a lowly 480p pixel density. You must’ve guessed by now that by strongest points, we meant its display’s size and not its resolution.
Cameras and hardware
In an otherwise pretty naïve release, the smartphone may just make you smile by offering a 5 megapixel selfie sensor. That’s really good considering that we expected a VGA or 2 megapixel one while its primary sensor stands at 5 megapixels as well, something we expected would’ve been at-least 8 megapixels.
Nothing special when it comes to its hardware as a quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, Android Nougat, an external card-slot and a removable 2500 mAh battery being its other expected features.
