Local outfit SNS today along with Intel showcased the launch of their latest smartphone and tablet, the JOI 7 Life and the JOI 5 both of which incorporate Intel’s new Atom x3 processor. The new Intel Atom x3 processor is angled at entry and value-level tablets, phablets and phones. The Intel Atom x3-C3130 processor that comes with the JOI 7 and JOI 5 phone is a dual-core 64-bit processor that can go up to 1.0GHz and offers 3G connectivity.

The JOI 7 Lite phablet comes with a 7-inch IPS display with 1,024 x 600 pixel resolution and, as mentioned earlier, runs on an Intel Atom x3-C3130 chip with 1GB RAM and 8GB of expandable storage with up to 32GB microSD cards supported. It also has dual SIM cards, both of which support 3G. The rear camera is a 2-MP model while the front is a VGA camera and the device packs a 2600mAh battery. What is unique about the JOI 7 Lite slate is that it runs a stock version of Android sans any user inteface embellishments though it’s only Android 4.4. There is a Lollipop upgrade planned further along the road though. The JOI 7 Life comes in either black or white.
