Last week at Mobile World Congress 2019, Condor Electronics introduced its new premium smartphone. The Allure X sports a large AMOLED display with a 92% screen-to-body ratio, a higher-end MediaTek SoC, and advanced imaging capabilities. Meanwhile as a premium-tier product as opposed to an outright high-end flagship phone, Condor is building and pricing the Allure X relatively conservatively, intending to sell the phone for around €300.

The Condor Allure X is equipped with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display featuring a 2340x1080 resolution, laid out in a 19.5:9 (2.17:1) aspect ratio. The display is an important selling point of the smartphone as it spans across the entire front surface of the handset. To make it possible, Condor had to use a pop-up 8 MP front camera as well as an in-screen fingerprint scanner. As for the main camera, it's comprised of two modules: a 16 MP RGB camera and a 5 MP depth sensor, which are paired with a LED flash.

The Allure X is powered by MediaTek’s P70 SoC (4x Arm Cortex-73, 4x Arm Cortex-A53, Arm Mali G72-MP3 graphics, Cat-7 DL/Cat-13 UL 4G/LTE) and paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of NAND flash storage. The smartphone also features all the usual sensors: accelerometer, gravity, gyro, light, proximity, and magnetic.

Condor is equipping the Allure X handset with a 3,500-mAh battery, which is in-line with other large smartphones available on the market today.

The Allure X will be available in the near future with Google’s Android 9.0 operating system. As noted above, the  handset is aimed at the premium, sub-flagship market, with Condor aiming to get the phone out for around €300. And while the phone isn't intended to go toe-to-toe with the flagship phones from the bigger vendors, this is still a very aggressive price for a phone with such a large and advanced AMOLED display. One of the reasons why Condor prices its Allure X phone this way is because of its domestic market of Algeria. Another reason is, perhaps, because the company wants to expand beyond its home turf, and needs to compete against better-known players.

In that respect, the launch of the Allure X is part of a larger effort by Condor to break into the wider global marketplace. Right now the company is better known as a consumer electronics brand from Algeria, where it supplies everything from smart watches to washing machines to tablets to refrigerators. So getting traction in the larger and very high profile smartphone market would help expand the company's brand significantly.

    Make it for Verizon and it will fly

    I second the desire to have that on Verizon. It would be nice to have a mid range phone that has performance.

    Does it have a micro sdxc card slot?
  • CaedenV - Wednesday, March 6, 2019 - link

    ... it has 128GB of internal storage....
    I get wanting an SD card slot at 64GB or less, but at 128GB on a midrange device... you may be using your phone wrong if you need more

    "All products should be what I want".

    Maybe you are looking at the wrong product, how about that? It's a 300E phone with decent specs and 128GB of (faster) internal storage. If you want something on top of that there are other phones to satisfy you.

    BTW, I want linear particle accelerator in there. And so should you.

    It was just a question. He can ask questions without you assuming anything more about his intend, can't he?

    Evidence clearly to the contrary (o_O)

    I know AT's comment system is one of the more atrocious on the interwebs (any techies there to take it out of the dark ages?) but I was clearly replying to GTRagnarok's attempt at sarcasm. The question was already asked and answered before that.

    Any minimal vido collection or music in lossless will chunks those 128GB, I prefer to have SD cardS with different media depending on my tastes for the day, anime/manga/comics/cartoons/etc.
