Do you really need a touch and type device?
Jivi Mobiles has today announced the launch of its latest budget-centric touch and type smartphone in India. Dubbed as Revolution TnT3, the phone comes with a price tag of Rs 3,999 and it is available for purchase from both online and offline platforms.
The smartphone comes with a touchscreen and physical alphanumeric keyboard. The phone features a 4-inch WVGA display and it is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. The phone is backed by a 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via micro SD card slot.
On the camera front, it sports a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The Revolution TnT3 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and it is backed by a 2300mAh battery. There is a fingerprint sensor at the back panel, which is a rarity in this budget. On the connectivity front, it supports 4G LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, dual-SIM and micro USB port.
That said, the question here is: do you really need a touch and type device? The answer is pretty much simple here. Gone are the days when people should love the concept of touch and type, but in this smartphone era, the whole concept of a physical keyboard seems to be obsolete. Brands like BlackBerry has already tried to bring back the nostalgic physical keyboard, it has failed miserably. And same is the case of the budget segment as well.

At a time when people are looking to shift from a feature phone to a smartphone, giving an option of a hybrid device is one thing interesting we have to see. On the other side, the specifications look pretty much average with the price here, though the addition of fingerprint sensor is a welcome move.
