itel p33

Itel P33 has launched in Nigeria, along with Itel P33 Plus, its closest sibling. The P33 is a new entry-level phone in the country with a 5.5-inch HD+ IPS Full Screen, user interface 3.0, 8-megapixels dual rear cameras, massive 4000-mAh battery, and comes in colors Blue, Black, and Gold.

Unfortunately, in spite of its huge battery capacity, the smartphone does not have fast charging support, which comes as no surprise due to its low price.

The new device is an upgrade to iTel P32 released last year, and the dual rear camera setup is accompanied by an LED flash as well as a fingerprint sensor. Both the Itel P33 and the P33 Plus will be available in stores all over Nigeria from April 1 and will go for ₦24,000 and ₦26,000, respectively.
