While plenty of action has gone on at Google I/O today, this does not mean that other mobile operating system platforms have clocked out for the day! No sir, as Romanian brand Allview is thrust under the spotlight with word that they will be introducing a couple of new smartphones in addition to their maiden tablet outing that will be powered by the Windows 8.1 platform. Expect to read more about the Allview devices right after the jump.
For starters, the Impera i happens to be an extremely slim smartphone that has a generous 4.7” IPS LCD display at HD (1280 x 720px) resolution. It measures all of just 7.2mm in terms of thickness, where it will run on a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, accompanied by 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal memory, an 8MP camera at the back with flash, a 2MP camera in front for sharp looking selfies, and dual-SIM support, all of it retailing for approximately $217.
As for the Impera S, this model will sport a larger 5” IPS LCD display that is protected by Dragontrail Glass. Hmmm, whatever happened to Gorilla Glass? Other than that, the hardware specifications of this Windows Phone-powered device remains the same as that of the Impera i, retailing for approximately $232.
As for its Windows 8.1 tablet, this model will arrive with an 8” IPS LCD display with 1280 x 800 resolution, alongside a quad-core 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735E processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, and dual cameras.
