Hisense launches affordable smartphones

Hisense launches two new phones into the competitive SA market.


Hisense, the Chinese multinational appliance and electronics manufacturer, has launched two new affordable smartphones into the local the market -- the Infinity H30 (R5 600) -- and the Infinity H30 lite (R2 999).

Liam Faurie, head of marketing and product planning for Hisense Mobile says, “As Hisense celebrates its 50th anniversary, we could think of no better time to introduce two brand-new Hisense smart phones to South Africa.”

The Hisense Infinity H30 has a 6.5 waterdrop notch display and screen-to-body ratio of 83.3% that, according to Faurie, gives users a cinematic experience while watching movies and videos. The 4530 mAh battery with Artificial Intelligence (AI) power saving allows for longer battery life, in some cases up to two days. It's powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 AI chipset that brings improved power efficiency and clock-speed enhancements.

A scaled down version of the phone, the H30 Lite, was launched at the same event. This model has a 6.1" water drop display, and also features a dual rear camera with AI scene recognition, and has a 3000mAh battery with AI power saving.

Both models come in Ice Blue and Violet Ocean, and are available from June through network operator stores and other cellular retailers.
