Both handsets are powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 processor and feature an all-metal casing, as well as a curved back, being expected to hit the market in Q4.

TP-Link is a new name in the smartphone market, but the company has been around for two decades as a maker of computer networking products. Not a long time ago, they launched the Neffos C5 lineup, which consists of three low-to-mid-range devices. Now, the time has arrived for a new series to show up - the Neffos X1.

Neffos X1 and Neffos X1 Max are the only two handsets in the X1 family. They both use the MediaTek Helio P10 processor, run Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and feature a fingerprint scanner on the back. These are the other highlights of the two smartphones:

  • Neffos X1 - 5-inch 720p IPS, 2 GB/3 GB RAM, 16 GB/32 GB internal storage, 2,250 mAh
  • Neffos X1 Max - 5.5-inch full HD IPS, 3 GB/4 GB RAM, 32 GB/64 GB internal storage, 3,000 mAh

In addition to the above, both X1 smartphones feature a 5 MP front camera and a 13 MP main image snapper on the back, as well as a microSD slot with support for cards up to 128 GB.

The prices announced are 199 EUR for the X1 and 249 EUR for the X1 Max - around $220 USD and $280 USD considering the current exchange rate. However, TP-Link only expects to have these on the market in Q4, so the figures might change until then.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
