It is not new for large department store chains to offer their own brand of electronic gadgets to their customers, in which case the development and production is usually carried out by another company, and the commercial giants manage the marketing and sales. Last year, Tesco had its own brand in Hungary, Op3n Dott, which offered tablets, phones and fitness bracelets, and although similar products can still be found on the shelves of one or another supermarket chain, they did not revolutionize the mobile market. In any case, there is a demand for them, as evidenced by the fact that Tesco is trying again with its own brand of devices, now in its home market.

The developer and manufacturer is IMO, a British telecommunications company specializing in low-cost phones. And the device in question is IMO Q5, a smartphone running Android 12 with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD panel. The display has a 9:18 aspect ratio, there is no notch or camera hole, but the resolution is only HD. The 5-megapixel front camera, which is also used for 2D face-based unlocking, is located in the symmetrical frame above and below the display. A 13 MP wide camera and a VGA (!) sensor with an unknown function, presumably for collecting depth data, were placed on the back. The cameras and the LED flash stand out from the plastic device body.

Under the back panel, you will find a 2500 mAh battery, which supplies energy to the Unisoc SC9832E chip, 2 GB of operational memory and 16 GB of expandable storage space. The mentioned Unisoc system chip represents the entry level in the range, it was originally presented in 2018, and is made on TSMC’s 28 nanometer 28HPm node. The processor contains four ARM Cortex-A7 cores, scaled to 1.4 GHz, the GPU is ARM Mali-T820, it handles only LPDDR3 from operational memory and the integrated modem is good for managing 4G networks. Recently, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core (2020) and the Nokia C2, also introduced in early 2020, were equipped with this chip.
