Some new phones have been announced by Polaroid at CES. The company is not a major player, but the new phones do seem nice in the affordable, entry-level segment. A total of 4 smartphones have been showcased by the company.
The first one is the Polaroid Snap, which gets three variants of different display sizes- 5-inch, 5.5-inch, and 6-inch. All these displays get HD resolution, and the pixel density is as low as 244ppi for the biggest display variant. The LTE-enabled Snap is powered by an unknown SoC hiding a quad-core CPU, coupled with 1GB/2GB RAM and 8GB/16GB onboard storage.
The Polaroid Snap gets a 13MP/5MP camera setup with LED flashes. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and the company has promised a Marshmallow update in the near future. Depending on the size, the Snap is priced between $130 to $180.
The better launch in the list is the Polaroid Power, which flaunts a 6-inch FullHD screen and an octa-core processor. The phablet is packed with a nice 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. There’s a 13MP camera at the back and an 8MP snapper at the front.
The Polaroid Power is juiced by a 3,000mAh battery, but the phone does come with a free 8,000mAh power bank. Running Lollipop pre-installed, the phone will get the Marshmallow updated later. The LTE-enabled phablet costs $250, which is good for the specs it carries.
