HSL Mobile has now launched a new smartphone dubbed the Y501 in India. The USP of the latest smartphone lies in the fact that the HSL Y501 touts a so called 'HammerScreen'.
According to the company the HammerScreen protects the display of the smartphone from various forms of damage, thereby offering a super impact protection. HSL however doesn't detail much on how they are achieving this so called HammerScreen.
"We are very happy to introduce Y501 Plus in India which is specifically designed and developed keeping Indian consumers' need for vernacular languages solution and a tougher screen at the centre," said Naresh Yadav, director of HSL Mobiles.
Apparently it seems that HSL has included a more than one layer of Gorilla Glass protection to achieve this super impact protection. In fact a few Chinese smartphone brands like Oukitel, UMi has done so in the past, and that too rather successfully. The companies were in fact seen posting videos on YouTube where one of their official were seen busy hammering away their smartphone! Come on HSL, you can do that too...
Coming to the specs, the HSL Y501 sports a 1.2GHz quad core Mediatek SoC with 1GB RAM and 8GB of on-board storage. This is further expandable via MicroSD card slot upto 32GB. In terms of camera the HSL Y501 features a 5MP rear and 2MP front facing camera. Besides that the smartphone is powered by a 2000mAh battery which according to the company can deliver 10 hours of talk time and 150 hours of standby time.
The HSL Y501 Plus supports dual SIM is available in Black and White colour variants via Snapdeal at Rs 3,999.
