10.or G2 may launch soon in India with a notched FHD+ display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 636
10.or is a Chinese smartphone brand that made its way to India in 2017. The company made itself known in the market as an affordable budget phone brand. Its phones had a decent blend of specifications and pricing. In 2017, it launched three phones: 10.or G, 10.or E, and the 10.or D. The brand’s momentum slowed in 2018 as it launched only a single phone, the 10.or D2. The 10.or G, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626-powered phone that was launched in 2017, is definitely due for a successor, and the phone is not even offered for sale anymore on Amazon India. Now, its successor, the 10.or G2, has appeared on the Google Play Developer Console’s Device Catalog. We have seen a fair share of new phones appear on the Device Catalog recently before their launch, and the 10.or G2 is the latest addition to the list.
The Developer Console’s Device Catalog reveals some of the phone’s specifications. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, which powers phones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1, Motorola One Power, and others. The Snapdragon 636 features the Adreno 509 GPU, which is clocked at 370MHz on the 10.or G2.
The phone will have a Full HD+ (2246×1080) display. The display’s 18.7:9 aspect ratio gives away that it will have a display notch, although the size and display type is unknown for now.
The 10.or G2 will have at least one variant which has 6GB of RAM. In terms of software, it will be powered by Android 8.1 Oreo, and not the newer Android 9 Pie. 10.or uses stock Android on their phones, so it’s disappointing to see that a new device release won’t be powered by the latest version of Android.
The Device Catalog also has a low-resolution render of the phone. It looks a standard 2018 phone from the front, with relatively small bezels on three sides and a thicker chin. The system features list on the Device Catalog hints that the phone may be manufactured by Wingtech, because the features list contains a “com.wingtech.hardware.display.camera_notch” feature. The feature list also contains a “com.motorola.ts.camera” feature, but it’s unknown what this refers to.
It’s fair to expect 10.or (which is pronounced “Tenor”) to announce the 10.or G2 as a lower mid-range phone contender in the coming weeks.
