TP-Link introduces Neffos C9, C9A as brand’s first smartphones with Full-View Display
TP-Link today revealed two smartphones under the upstart Neffos mobile brand. The new Neffos C9 and Neffos C9A combine bright and advanced Softlight Camera systems with Full-View Displays for excellent viewing and gaming experiences on the go, along with attractive everyday features.
Now, more than two decades after its founding in 1996, TP-Link has become the undisputed global leader in wireless-network solutions, operating in more than 170 territories worldwide. The company continues to offer capable, reliable, and reasonably priced networking devices and peripherals to customers around the world, and it aims to extend the same commitment toward product excellence in the smartphone space through the Neffos brand.
It has been found that around 60 percent of the market would lean toward smartphones that are both high-quality and inexpensive. These are the same attributes that customers can expect from the Neffos product line. The latest C9 and C9A phones draw on the Neffos heritage while ushering in a new era of cameras that perform well in both day and night situations, and taller displays that deliver a truly immersive experience.
Picture perfect, every time
With the Neffos C9 and C9A's advanced front and rear cameras, taking beautiful pictures or stylish selfies anytime, anywhere has never been easier. The C9 features an 8-megapixel Softlight Camera on the front that captures your face in the best way possible, while the C9A has been outfitted with a 5-megapixel Softlight Camera for better pictures at night or in a dimly lit environment.
The lenses behind the cameras offer an 84-degree wider field of view, giving you the best option to capture the world around you. Both phones also come with an AI Beautify function to conceal imperfections while highlighting all your natural features and smoothening your skin and thus create perfectly refined selfies. This stems from Neffos’ strong partnership with leading imaging-software company ArcSoft.
And with the 13-megapixel rear camera's lower-aperture lens and phase-detection auto-focus system, the Neffos C9 and C9A can capture sharp and detailed photos from day to night, without sacrificing image quality. For even more accurate color reproduction, the camera arrives with a blue-glass filter that cuts off infrared light.
Immersive full-screen experiences
The C9 and C9A aim to set the standard for ultimate and uninterrupted viewing and gaming experiences in the category with Neffos' Full-View Displays that go beyond ultra-thin bezels, featuring an impressive 18:9 aspect ratio and HD+ resolutions. They come in generous sizes, with the C9 and C9A sporting 5.99- and 5.45-inch screens, respectively.
Both are manufactured using in-cell technology, and they're engineered to provide a clearer and more vibrant picture. Other highlights include a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and 400 nits of brightness, which should be enough to let you enjoy watching videos outdoors or indoors without having to close the curtains.
Convenient and safe unlocking
Built with practicality and convenience in mind, the Neffos C9 and C9A incorporate water- and oil-resistant fingerprint readers into their designs, as well as face unlock using their selfie cameras. Powered by the latest artificial intelligence technology of industry-leading AI firm SenseTime, one of the companies Neffos has strong ties with, the cameras scan over 100 different facial details to pixel-level accuracy for a quick and effortless way of unlocking the devices.
Elsewhere, up-to-date and well-optimized Android 8.1 Oreo has been preinstalled on the C9 and C9A. The latest version of the operating system introduces several fresh features, including the latest security patches to keep the devices secure.
Efficient and long-lasting
To ensure uninterrupted use away from a socket, Neffos has equipped the C9 and C9A with high-capacity batteries that, paired with efficient 64-bit quad-core processors, should result in best-in-class battery life without compromising on speed. The batteries are designed to provide many hours of constant use and should retain up to 80 percent of their original capacities through 500 complete charge cycles.
The Neffos C9 and C9A will ship to stores in select markets later this year at affordable price points.< Go Back
