You may not have heard of EXMobile, but the proudly-Malaysian phone maker has been churning end-to-end mobile products and services for six years now. Its latest smartphone—EXMobile VoLte 1 is its first offering with a built-in fingerprint sensor.
Targeted at the masses, VoLte 1 (not to be confused with Voice over LTE or VoLTE) rocks some solid hardware including a 5.5-inch Full HD Shart LTPS 2.5D Arc display, protected by Dragontrail Glass.
Under the hood, it’s powered by the venerable octa-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MTK6753 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage. Storage is expandable via microSD, up to 64GB.
It comes with a large 3,250mAh battery that supports Fast Charging. EXMobile claims it can charge up the device fully in 75 minutes, with a standby time of up to 270 hours.
On the camera side of things, it rocks a 13MP f/2.0 main shooter with dual flash. On the front, it gets a 5MP OmniVision (OV) selfie camera. An added plus is a physical camera button to quick launch the camera for photos or videos.
Impressively, there’s a rear mounted fingerprint scanner that supports 360-degree scanning. It scans in 0.5 seconds, and can recognize up to five fingerprints.
For audio enthusiasts, the VoLte 1 incorporates a dedicated NXP Smart Audio PA independent DAC and amplifier, for hi-res audio playback.
The dual-SIM device supports micro-SIM and nano-SIM, and is a 4G LTE-capable device. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and will get a bump up to Android Marshmallow later in June 2016.
As an added bonus, the VoLte 1 also includes an infrared blaster to enable you to use it as a remote control for your home appliances.
