Helio, a concern of the Edison Group, has recently launched their new flagship phone, the Helio S60. It was launched in a grand ceremony at Spectra Convention Hall in the Capital’s Gulshan 1 area.
The ceremony had many upper management officials of Edison Group present. Mr Aminul Islam, the Chairman of the group, announced the S60 at the event. Mr Maksudur Rahman, Senior Director of the group, was also present at the launch.
Much of the phone seems inspired by the iPhone X. There is a notch in the front of the 6.2-inch FHD screen. The screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The rest of the phone is also very iPhone-like. It has a metal back, with two back cameras. The S60 also boasts an integrated AI, namely the P60 AI. It will supposedly support better photography, performance and power savings.
The S60 also has state of the art security with 3D face ID. This feature helps the phone to be unopenable to anyone but the user of the said phone. It is a hardware-based feature, which is certainly something different in today’s market. There is also a finger scanner at the back for more security.
The back cameras are of 16 and 5-megapixel resolution respectively. There is an LED flash in the middle. The company promises great a photography experience for the user. The front camera is 16 megapixels and does seem to take pretty good selfies, at least in good lighting. It comes with 4 GB’s of RAM alongside 64 GB onboard memory. The battery is bulky at 3000 maH and yet the phone is certainly closer to the slimmer side of the smartphone spectrum, which seems like an achievement. It comes with Type-C charging option as well as wireless charging. Every S60 also comes with a free wireless charger, sweetening the deal.
Priced at 25,990 BDT, the phone brings a fairly premium product within budget. There are EMI options available for select banks.
