Rogers‘ sub-brand, Chatr just unveiled a new budget phone. It’s called the ZTE Jasper and can be purchased for only $100 CAD. New subscribers will also have to pay an extra $10 CAD for a SIM card.
Anyway, the ZTE Jasper is a low-end device, but if you’re on a tight budget it’s just what you need. The product includes a 4-inch display with 480 x 800 resolution and a Snapdragon 210 nestled under the hood. There’s also 1GB of RAM and a decent 2,000 mAh battery, which ZTE claims will be able to sustain up to 9.6 hours of life onboard.
While the phone only includes 8GB of internal storage, the presence of a microSD card slot onboard will allow customers to expand up to 32GB. The phone also packs a 5-megapixel main camera, but if you want to take a selfie you’re out of luck, as there’s no secondary snapper available on the Jasper.
The phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box and is LTE-compatible with networks that operate under 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz and 1900MHz frequencies and Bands 2, 4 and 5.
The ZTE Jasper provides you with the basics at an affordable price. It’s a great first phone for someone who hasn’t used smartphones before.
