The popular router manufacturer has revealed its first smartphone models ranging from 4.5-inches to 5.5-inches and a starting price of just 100 Euros.

Apparently, TP-Link would rather not wait until MWC 2016 before revealing its first set of smartphones. The Chinese manufacturer has officially announced specifications and starting prices for its family of three smartphones: The Neffos C5, C5L, and C5 Max.

According to the manufacturer, the Neffos C5L should be available in parts of Europe starting this March for just 100 Euros while launch times and prices for the other two will be announced at a later date.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
