It seems a lot of companies are finding favour in Taiwan recently with HTC announcing some exclusive models over there recently and now BenQ announcing they’re going to re-enter the smartphone business.
The company recently released two very affordable quad-core smartphones, starting with the BenQ F3 which is powered by a MediaTek MT6589 and BenQ A3 which is rocking a Snapdragon MSM8225Q.
Both devices have pretty identical specs to one another, both include a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM a 4.5 inch 960 X 450 IPS display with 4GB of internal storage and expandable via the SD card slot. There’s only 2 distinguishable features aside from the design one being; the different batteries these two devices have (2,100mAh for the F3 and 2,000mAh for the A3) The other being the F3 has a 13-megapixel f2.2 camera and the A3 only possesses an 8 megapixel sensor.
Both these devices are already available in Taiwan, with the BenQ F3 going for NT$7,990 (£164) and the A3 fetching NT$5,990 (£123) There’s no word on a global launch quite yet, but we’ll hopefully have some more news for you soon.
