TP-Link has a positive reputation as that best global provider for networking products for a long time. TP-Link has set a new goal in order to be recognized other than that reputation by also becoming a manufacturer in the smartphone business. Recently, TP-Link has launched the Neffos X1 and Neffos X1 Max. The TP-Link Neffos X1 is currently available in the colors of Cloudy Gray and Sunrise Gold. It is powered by a Helio P10 octa-core processor. Graphics are rendered by the famous ARM Mali-T860MP2 at 550 MHz. The Neffos X1 comes in two variations: 2 GB RAM + 16 GB ROM and 3 GB + 32 GB ROM. This Neffos can pair nicely with a microSD card that can add up to 128 GB of extra storage space. This particular phone from TP-Link supports dual nano SIM cards. Both slots support 2G, 3G and 4G. The Neffos X1 supports dual-SIM dual-Standby. Hence, if the user takes a call on one SIM the other SIM does not become active. With the additional microSD card, one SIM slot is occupied. The Neffos X1 measures at 142 x 71 x 7.95 mm and weighs 135 grams. Its 5-inch display features a resolution of 1,280 x 720 HD at 293.7 PPI. The viewing angles are wide and the display is protected against scratch with 2.5D glass.

The Neffos X1 introduces a new dimension to the design of smartphone, with the degree of the curvature which was modified many times to tackle the balance between “gentle” and “dynamic”, to make the handling of the back feel more natural and fit perfectly into the palm of the user compared to other smartphones. The CNC technique makes the phone's extremely narrow edges with 0.6 mm ultra slim chamfer that manage to make the phone even more stylish. The entire physical button on the phone is carefully curved so that the user can handle it easily. The mute button enables the user to mute all the sounds from the phone with ease in any circumstance. The phone features a 5 MP front camera with beautifying effects and a 13 MP rear camera and is ready for real-time night shooting. It comes with a 3.5 mm audio jack and a USB 2.0 port. The phone has a variety of sensors, such as an accelerometer, a proximity sensor, a compass, an ambient sensor, and a fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone. The finger print reader allows the user to unlock the phone within 0.2 seconds. The-Link is empowered by 2250 mAh battery that can support the user for a day. Fans of TP-Link products have to try this smartphone to see that TP-Link is capable of more than just networking products. They can also produce powerful and stylish smartphones such as the TP-Link Neffos X1.

The TP-Link Neffos X1 is a smartphone released by the well-known maker of networking equipment which is TP-Link. However, it's been working on rebranding to do so. It is pivoting more toward the smart home market and has also released a couple of smartphones earlier this year under the Neffos name. The smartphone is made from a unibody metal exterior, featuring a dual curved back that tapers towards the sides. The X1 has a stunningly slim edge of 2.95mm. At their thickest, the X1 is 7.95mm. The TP-Link Neffos X1 smartphone is available in two different color variations, Cloudy Gray and Sunrise Gold. The Neffos X1 smartphone has a 5 inch screen, with HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel per inch density of 293.7 PPI. The display uses IPS, which means that its viewing angles are wide and the color reproduction should be very good. The display is covered with 2.5D glass, which protects it from scratches and dust. 2.5D means that the glass has no hard edges, but fades into the case gradually. The TP-Link Neffos X1 is powered by an Helio P10 octa-core processor from MediaTek. This processor has 4 cores running at 1.8GHz and 4 cores running at 1GHz. The graphics are handled by a Mali-T860MP2 video chip running at 550MHz.

TP-Link manufactures the Neffos X1 smartphone in two variations depending on the amount of RAM memory and storage space. A user can get it with either 2GB of RAM memory and 16GB of storage space or with 3GB of RAM memory and 32GB of internal storage space. Regardless of the version user have, user, can extend the internal storage space with a microSD card of up to 128GB. This is quite useful as even the 32GB isn’t particularly large these days. The rear camera on the TP-Link Neffos X1 is powered by a Sony IMX 258 sensor with a maximum resolution of 13 Megapixels, f2.0 aperture and 0.2s phase-detection autofocus. On the front, a user gets a selfie camera with 5 megapixels and beautifying effects. As for battery life, TP-Link equipped their Neffos X1 smartphone with a 2250mAh battery that should help it get through a whole day’s use. The TP-Link Neffos X1 smartphone is a Dual SIM device and supports 2G/3G WCDMA/4G LTE on both SIM cards, in Dual SIM Dual Standby. As for the connectivity options, the TP-Link Neffos X1 comes with a micro USB 2.0 port, a 3.5 mm audio jack, a Bluetooth 4.1 chip and a wireless network card that’s capable of connecting to 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi networks that use the 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless standards.
