Chinese luxury smartphone manufacturer, 8848, had an event today in Beijing where it discussed its plan for the future.
The company, which celebrated its 5th anniversary this year, also announced its first 5G smartphone, the 8848 Titanium M6.
The 8848 Titanium M6 is not only the first luxury 5G smartphone but also the first Snapdragon 865-powered device. The phone has a 6.01-inch AMOLED display, 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. It also has a 64MP camera that can shoot 100MP photos.
The rest of the M6’s specs were not revealed and that is because the phone will not be available until the first quarter of 2020 when Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 processor will be already available.
8848 also announced a plan called “5G Zero Distance”. The plan has been designed to make switching to 5G easy. 8848 says to subscribe to the plan, all you have to do is purchase its current phone, the 8848 Titanium M5, and when the M6 launches next year, you will be able to purchase it at the same price you bought the M5.
8848 also announced a personal assistant service for its customers. While other companies are launching AI-based smart assistants, 8848’s assistant service is made up of real people that will handle trivial tasks for customers.
The company said it believes smart assistants can’t provide good enough services to people, so it decided to launch a personal assistant service made of real people. More
