The device has a dual flash camera and its front camera has LED flash and allows face detection. The smartphone offer users HDR optimization effect, textured leather grain back cover; wave hand shutter, touch capture, voice capture, gesture shot, WiFi and Bluetooth-ready, video composition, and FM Radio among other features.
Speaking at the device launch, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, Kweku Sakyi Addo urged the government to consider removing the 20 per cent tax on imported mobile phones.
“It is a wise thing to do knowing how important handsets have become in the lives of people,” he said. “When the tax is removed, it would create a level playing field between the registered companies, and the black market operators, who capitalize on the weakness in the system to defraud the state of so much.”
