There is a new smartphone company in town, one that promises to change your smartphone with software every month.
The CREO Mark 1, launched at Rs 19,999 is based on Android but runs an operating system called Fuel OS which the company promises will update every month. Each update will come with ratings from users and video walkthroughs.’
CEO Sai Srinivas said people who suggest new features will be credited for their contribution. “This is how we make Android better. This is how we make it truly inclusive,” said Srinivas, who earlier launched the video streaming dongle Teewe.
The CEO showed how the phone’s USP is an intuitive UI later called sense that conjures up everything with a simple search wherever you are. Another interesting software feature is Echo, an answering machine built into the phone, carrier independent and free.
The phone will offer a 5.5-inch QHD display, 21 megapixel rear camera with 8 megapixel front camera. It is powered by a 1.9GHz True OctaCore MediaTek Helio X10 processor with 3GB RAM. The phone will come with 32GB storage and a 3100mAh battery. The camera offers 4K video and slow motion at 120fps in full HD.
The phone will be available on Flipkart and Creosense.com. The company is offering 100-odd service centres powered primarily by HCL Care. Also, CREO will let users engrave a 40-character message on the side for orders made on the company website.
