Mobicel, the South African smartphone brand, has launched the Trendy 2, an affordable LTE-enabled smartphone that runs on the Android Go platform. The new handset is the successor to the popular Trendy Smartphone and offers a range of value-added features and powerful specifications at an accessible price.
Device highlights include a 5.45-inch display, a 2 megapixel front camera, 5 megapixel back camera, and 8GB of onboard memory. The integrated 4G/LTE capability, meanwhile, allows entry-level users to enjoy a better experience when using bandwidth-intensive applications like video and music streaming.
The Trendy 2 is one of the first LTE smartphones in its price bracket to run on Android Go, a lighter edition of the Android operating system. The operating system tailors and refines the user experience as you use the phone, learning user’s preferences and shaping your interface accordingly.
It prioritises apps based on how often they are used, ensuring that the apps that are seldom or never used won’t drain battery life.
Android Pie Go Edition curates data about how you use your device, so you can see how much time you spend on your phone, which apps you spend the most time on, and your habits at particular times of the day. You can use this info to set daily, weekly and monthly limits on your app and data usage.
Your phone will alert you when you’ve reached these ceilings.
Mobicel products can be purchased online at Mobicel.co.za and at all major retail stores around the country.
