Celebrating 80 years of existence, Polaroid has launched the Cosmo K and K Plus smartphones, together with the Jet C7 tablet in Mexico. The devices are powered by MediaTek's quad-core CPUs and are available at Telcel.

After some troublesome years in the early 2000’s, Polaroid was forced to shift its focus from photography to mobile devices. Celebrating 80 years of existence, the company has announced its expansion on the Mexican mobile market with two new entry-level Cosmo smartphones and a tablet.  The expansion on the Mexican market was made possible thanks to collaborations with Telcel and MediaTek.

The Polaroid Cosmo K and K Plus smartphones are powered by a MediaTek quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz, feature 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, and come equipped with a 13 MP back camera and 5 MP front camera. Both models pack a 2,800 mAh battery and run Android 6.0 Marshmallow by default. The Cosmo K integrates a 5-inch display, while the K Plus has the 5.5-inch version.

Apparently, Mexico could not implement 4G for the time being, so the new C7 tablet is limited to 3G. The specs indicate that this is an entry-level model as well. The C7 integrates 5 MP cameras for front and back, together with selfie flash and advanced photography features. It is powered by a quad-core Mediatek CPU clocked at 1 GHz, and features 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB internal memory, expandable to 32 GB. The tablet runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow as well, while the battery capacity is 2,650 mAh.

Polaroid claims that all three devices are available at Telcel Mexico, but does not provide any pricing information.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
