Itel S42 Full Specifications and Price in Nigeria

Dishing out the bezel-less design and the standard 18:9 aspect ratio for the first time in the S42, it is crystal clear that Item has “upped” their game as well. Itel had released some devices in the past which were unimpressive, some were impressive as well but the company doesn’t want to leave budget smartphone production behind to release better devices. The S42 also reflects this.

Trying out Qualcomm’s chipset for the first time as well (like infinix in the Hot S3), we’re hoping to get better performance from this device than from its predecessors but it’s important everyone knows that the bezel-less design and 18:9 aspect ratio doesn’t make it a flagship device, neither does it give it a great display, it’s just more attractive. Let’s see some features from the S41.
