HomTom is a newcomer to the smartphone market, being a subsidiary of Doogee and a manufacturer of affordable smartphones. The company in conjunction with retailer CooliCool is kicking off one of their most interesting flash sales that offers up the company’s latest flagship mid-ranger, the HomTom HT7, for the ridiculously low price of $40 unlocked. You can head on over to the flash sale to check out the offer, or read all about how the promotion works below.
The HomTom flash sale takes place between December 9 and 15, so there are still a few days left in which interested parties can take advantage of the low prices the retailer is offering. First, you can buy the HomTom HT7 as is for $40 each day, although there are limited units available each day. You need to be quick to snap them up, but you still have time even today. The second option that you might want to choose is to buy the HomTom HT7 and an assortment of accessories, such as a silica case and a screen protector, but this bundle will bring the cost up to $60. No matter how you look at it, these prices are stupid cheap for a handset that’s not supposed to be an entry-level device.
So what does the HomTom HT7 have to offer? Quite a few neat things, in fact. First off, the handset comes with a unique design that resembles quite a few Nexus 5X renders from earlier in the year, sporting a textured polycarbonate back panel with a hexagonal grid layout and curved edges. A 5.5-inch display with 1280*720 resolution is up front, placing the HomTom HT7 in the phablet category. An 8 MP Samsung camera with a flash is on the rear and a 5 MP camera is up front.
Under the hood, the HomTom HT7 comes with a 3000 mAh battery which should make for two days of regular use, Android 5.1 Lollipop, a MTK6580A Soc, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB expandable internal storage. 4G LTE is missing, but 3G is there and so are two microSIM card slots. You can check out the full list of specifications on the pre-order page of the HomTom HT7. As you can see, it’s a pretty basic smartphone which stands out with its large display and its unique design elements. For the price it’s being advertised at, the handset is a pretty good competitor for mainstream options like the Moto G, Galaxy J1, Galaxy J5 and OnePlus X. We’re looking forward to testing the smartphone ourselves and we will be back with our first impressions of it soon enough.
