Telekom launches cheap, own-brand smartphones: T Phone 5G and T Phone Pro 5G are coming

Subscribers of the service provider can receive a discount for devices developed jointly with Google.

Although mobile service providers mainly recommend the devices of their contracted partners to their customers for purchase, it sometimes happens that they add color to the offer with their own branded phones. Deutsche Telekom also did the same, bringing T Phone 5G and T Phone Pro 5G to the domestic market through its Hungarian subsidiary. Devices developed jointly with Google, as their name suggests, already take advantage of the higher data transfer speeds of 5G networks, but they can also be considered for their camera and operating time, not to mention the budget-friendly pricing. The latter is one of the most important strengths of the two smartphones, since although they do not want to create competition for other mobile manufacturers, this price segment has recently been somewhat neglected even by Chinese manufacturers.

The HUF 90,200 T Phone 5G has a 6.52-inch glass-covered HD+ display, three cameras (50 MP main and 2 MP macro cameras are accompanied by a 5 MP selfie camera), a 4500 mAh battery, 4 GB of memory and 64 GB of storage space, which includes a 3-month free Google One Basic subscription with 100 GB of cloud storage. Unfortunately, there is no NFC, but 5G connection is provided.

The slightly more expensive T Phone Pro 5G, advertised for HUF 107,800, has a 6.82-inch HD+ display, a 16 MP front camera, a 50, a 5 and two 2 MP cameras at the back, a 5000 mAh battery, 6 GB memory and 128 Ups the ante with GB storage. Here you also get NFC for payment and Qi charging is available, which is not found in most competitors at this level.

MediaTek’s Dimensity 700 chipset works in both mobile phones, users are welcomed by Android 12, and fast charging (via USB C 15 W connector) and face and fingerprint recognition are also available. The choice of colors is limited, to put it mildly, the cheaper device is blue, the more expensive is dark gray will be available from October 5. The good news is that both phones come with 2 years of Android updates and quarterly security patches, guaranteed by the provider for 4 years. The devices are IP52 rated, so rain and splashing water won’t harm them, you also get a jack connection, and the user interface is natural (stock) Android, and there is no bloatware (waste software) on the phones.

In its announcement, Magyar Telekom considered it important to note that it provides customers with 100 GB of cloud storage for free for 3 months via Google One, and subscribers with a two-year loyalty period can benefit from a discount. In addition, anyone who buys it in a store will receive a gift foil, and online the service provider will also cover this with a transparent case.

We have already managed to get hold of AT Phone Pro 5G for a test, so you will soon find out whether you should be afraid of the cheap operator mobile or whether it will have a place and success in the domestic market.
