Budget phone maker itel has officially entered the gaming smartphone arena with the release of the RS4. Priced at an expected starting price of ₹8,990 in India (around $107 USD), the RS4 boasts features that aim to punch above its weight class.

MediaTek Helio G99 Under the Hood

The RS4 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G99 processor, a chipset not often seen but designed specifically for mobile gaming. This is paired with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage, offering users a choice for multitasking and game storage.

Smooth Gameplay with 120Hz Display

The phone features a 6.56-inch HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. This smoother refresh rate, along with a 240Hz touch sampling rate, promises a more responsive and fluid gaming experience, especially in fast-paced titles.

Dual Camera System and Big Battery

On the back, the RS4 sports a dual camera system with a 50MP main sensor. While details about the secondary sensor are unavailable, the 50MP main sensor suggests itel is targeting users who also want to capture decent photos and videos. A sizable 5000mAh battery with 45W fast charging keeps the phone powered for extended gaming sessions or daily use.

Early Impressions: A Contender for Budget Gamers?

While the phone is yet to hit the market, initial impressions suggest the itel RS4 could be a compelling option for budget-minded gamers. The combination of a gaming-focused processor, ample RAM options, a smooth display, and a large battery tick many boxes for those looking for a phone that prioritizes performance without breaking the bank.

However, some reviewers note that the 720p display resolution might be a drawback for users who prefer sharper visuals. Additionally, the real-world gaming performance will depend on optimization and how well the phone handles demanding titles.

Overall, the itel RS4 seems to be a promising entry into the budget gaming smartphone market. Whether it can claim the title of undisputed champion remains to be seen, but it certainly offers a feature set that could entice gamers on a tight budget.
