BenQ A3 and F3 smartphones launched in Taiwan

BenQ A3 and F3 smartphones

It was at the end of October when we’ve told you that BenQ is set to return to the mobile market. Now we have the first two smartphones unveiled – BenQ A3 and F3, both trying to find buyers in the mid-end of the market.

The two phones both rock a 4.5-inch qHD screen, 1GB of RAM, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 4GB of internal (though expandable) storage. When it comes to differences, the F3 comes with MediaTek’s 1.2GHz MT6589 quad-core chip, while the A3 opts for Qualcomm-made Snapdragon MSM8225Q SoC, also clocked at 1.2GHz. In addition, the F3 has a 13-megapixel f/2.2 rear camera with HDR and zero shutter delay, whereas the A3 only has an 8-megapixel sensor.

BenQ will start selling its phones in Taiwan: the unlocked F3 could be yours for NT$7,990 (about $270), while the A3 goes for NT$5,990 (about $200). Still no information whether these two, or some future BenQ handset, will ever make it to the West…
