The latest release from Bangladeshi brand Walton is Walton Primo RX8 Mini. The official price of the device is ৳11,999. The pre-booking price is ৳10,999 with a ৳1,000 discount. The pre-booking is set to start from 10th June 2021.
The phone is no less than a surprise. We currently do not have any smartphone in the market that can match the price and specifications of this gadget. This can boost the brand reputation of Walton and make more users switch from other brands to this Bangladeshi brand. This creates a great opportunity for building consumer trust in the long run as well for Walton. The previous Primo RX7 Mini was a great release at the end of 2019 but this one shines even brighter.
Primo RX8 Mini is coming with a Full HD+ display with Gorilla Glass protection and glossy glass back. You will hardly ever find a phone with a Full HD+ display at this price and on top of that with display protection as well as a glass back which is one of the major advantages of this smartphone. It gets solid marks in terms of display and build quality.
There is a triple back camera and a 13 MP front camera setup. These are some pretty good deals around the price. 3600 mAh lower battery is one of its major disadvantages. Especially when you have a Full HD+ display, it will consume more battery than an HD+ screen. But the good news is we have 18W Fast Charging support. There is a 10W charger in the box though. You can’t say it’s unfair at all given the price. The 18W charging support is a bonus that is appreciated.
Now, the performance, the big deal. Yes, we have a Snapdragon 600 series chipset. But hold on there. It’s the 14 nm Snapdragon 660 chipset which belongs to the lower performance 600 series chipsets. It’s just a very little ahead of Snapdragon 460 in terms of performance. But Snapdragon 460 has better battery optimization than 660. There is 4 GB RAM so, the performance is still great for the cost.
There is Android 10 and you could wish for Android 11 at this moment in time. We don’t know if a further Android update will be available or not. Among other features, there is 64 GB internal storage, a Notification LED, USB Type-C, security slider, back-mounted fingerprint sensor and shared MicroSD slot. As an excellent bonus feature we have a security slider which can block cameras and microphone to ensure full privacy.
