Walton Primo RX3 Preview
Walton’s Primo RX3 is the latest addition to their growing lineup of Android devices. Similar to many other devices looking to make an impression on the super competitive smartphone market, Walton is looking to bring a premium build along with strong specifications in order to catch the attention of consumers looking for a mid-range device. At BDT 13,990 the company appears to offer a compelling product.
Starting off with the design, we see a metal chassis being implemented along with a sleek yet simple body that comes in at 8.8mm thick. The back appears to have a matte finish and has a long speaker grille along the bottom. The device weighs just 128 grams with the battery installed.
The Primo RX3 packs a 13 megapixel BSI main camera with autofocus and a single LED flash whilst the front is graced with a 5 megapixel BSI sensor. Also, for the first time, Walton has incorporated a front LED flash which is a great addition specially for the selfie addicts. Sample images look promising but we will wait until we fully review the device to give our verdict.
Under the hood the Primo RX3 brings to the table a 1.7GHz octa core MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM, a Mali 450 GPU and 16GB ROM (expandable up to 32GB with micro SD card). The device will ship with Android 4.4.2 KitKat however Walton has mentioned on their website that the RX3 will be upgradeable to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
According to Antutu Benchmark scores, the Primo RX3 stands just below the famous LG G3 with the score of 29034. As for Nenamark scoreboard, it scores only 61.4 and stands above the age-old Galaxy SII.
The RX3 has a 5 inch HD IPS display protected by Gorilla Glass 2. Inside, there is also a 2,100mAh battery which should provide abundant battery life due to the screen’s resolution. Additionally, the RX3 is a dual SIM device and supports USB OTG like most of Walton’s new devices.
On the software side of things, Walton seems to have a modified KitKat interface in place similar to what we saw in the Primo NX2. As the device will be upgradeable to Lollipop, we’d like to see how Walton keeps the software experience.
Special features of RX3:
Whenever a new update is available, Walton Primo RX3 will update automatically. It’s good to know that the Lollipop update is coming soon to this device.
For now, the RX3 looks like a good device but we all know at the end of the day it all comes down to how the device performs in day to day use. So keep your heads up and wait for the in depth review of the smartphone.
