After launching Omega 3, Chaudhary Group (CG) has added yet another phone to its Omega lineup — this time it’s the Omega 8. The budget-oriented handset mostly comes with features that we could see in phones from twenty-eighteen (2018).
The main highlight of the Omega 8 is the 18:9 infinity display. The 5.5-inch IPS screen is 720p in resolution and is complemented with a 2.5D curve. Underneath, is the quad-core processor — most probably the MT6737 — with a clock speed of 1.3GHz. Accompanying the chipset is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage which can be expanded via microSD card.
At the rear is a 13MP camera with LED flash, while selfies are taken care by an average 5MP sensor with a LED flash. The phone’s camera specs are something you would expect from a phone in this price range. Just below the camera is a fingerprint scanner — handy for securing the device.
Powered by a 3,000mAh battery, the CG Omega 8, unfortunately, boots on a bit outdated Android 7.0 Nougat. But it’s something that can be ignored, considering its low price of Rs. 12,999 in Nepal and free 1-year of insurance.
