Yarvik moves into mobiles with 5.3" dual-SIM Ingenia X1 and smaller Ingenia Synchro

Budget hardware maker Yarvik, which has stacks of perfectly capable Android tablets out there, has announced two new Android-powered smartphones. One of them is a massive beast, with the Ingenia X1 coming with a 5.3″ display. Internally it’s pretty average, though, offering a 1GHz dual-core processor alongside 1GB of RAM, plus an 8megapixel camera.

The display resolution is a slightly low 540 x 960, so it might look a little rough blown up to 5.3″ scale. Still, it’ll be cheap, with a price of £199 expected. And it looks pretty nice:


Yarvik has also announced the smaller Ingenia Synchro, a 4.5″ Android model running at the same resolution. Both are also dual-SIM models and will ship with Android 4.0.4. The two Ingenia models launch in early Feb. Here’s the full thing from Yarvik:

Yarvik introduces the Ingenia smartphone line

Delft, January 2013 – Yarvik is proud to introduce a new product group to its assortment of consumer electronics: smartphones. Fully featured smartphones for everyone who wants to stay connected on-the-go, while being capable of doing everything that comparable products from other well-known brands can do.

Meet Ingenia
It all starts with two elegant and solid models. The SMP53-210 Ingenia X1 comes with a stunning and spatial 5.3” IPS capacitive multi-touch display. The slightly smaller SMP45-210 Ingenia Synchro has a 4.5” IPS capacitive multi-touch display, but both models pack the same crisp qHD resolution.

Dual-core and… Dual-sim!
Looking for a fast and reliable simlock free smartphone? The new Ingenia line delivers with a powerful dual-core processor and a fast, dedicated graphics chip. Mobile gamers and video fanatics will be delighted!

But definately one of the best features of the new Yarvik Ingenia smartphone line is the presence of 2 sim slots. Both models are truly dual-sim, meaning ‘dual-stand-by’. You can have 2 phone numbers active and you can receive calls on both. Making a phonecall or texting someone? The Ingenia smartphone will ask you what number to use.

Mobile internet at your fingertips
The Yarvik Ingenia smartphones are true mobile internet communicators. One sim card slot provides full 3G (HSDPA) capabilities with a download speed of up to 7.2 Mbps, while both of them make the Ingenia smartphones a quadband world phone for voice calls and text messaging.

The Yarvik Ingenia X1 and Ingenia Synchro also come equipped with Bluetooth 2.1 for convenient use with your wireless Bluetooth keyboard, headset or carkit.

As versatile as it gets with Android
The software heart of both the Ingenia X1 and the Ingenia Synchro is the proven Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Blazingly fast and fluid and optimized for Ingenia, the performance shows itself, and gives you the freedom of pleasantly working with your smartphone, whether it’s calling, checking your Facebook wall, playing a game or watching that last summer’s blockbuster. Yarvik has preloaded awarded value apps ES File Explorer, OfficeSuite Mobile and FBReader for an amazing out-of-the-box experience.

Looking for more apps? The Google Play Store application market is also part of the standard package.

SMP45-210 Ingenia Synchro smartphone available beginning of february.
