BenQ announces two affordable smartphones – BenQ F3 and A3

Last time we heard from BenQ, it was back in 2009 and now it seems they are planning to make a come back with a pair of smartphones. BenQ has officially launched the BenQ F3 and A3 – both are budget-friendly Android powered smartphones, and luckily their specs are not that bad for a mid-range smartphone.

BenQ F3 features a Android 4.2.2, .5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz quad core MediaTek MT6589 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage with a microSD slot, a 13MP f/2.2 camera with zero shutter lag, and a 2,100 mAh battery. On the other hand, the A3 has almost the same specs except its running on Android 4.1.2, 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Play processor, a 2,000 mAh battery, and an 8MP camera.

Although, as we would love to see these devices in US and UK region, both devices are only available in Taiwan at the moment. The F3 will cost NT$7,990 (about US$270) off-contract, and the A3 goes for NT$5,990 (about US$200), so if you are in Taiwan, are you planning to grab one? Tell us about it in the comment box below.
