itel is announcing its second laptop the itel Spirit 1 notebook laptop few months after introducing the Able 1 laptop. The company introduced the device at the online launch event of the itel S17 smartphone and other itel family products. Where it also introduced the itel Smart Watch1, itel Wireless Neckband, itel blender, standing fan, electric stove and itel Cinema TV Projector.
Officially, the company says the itel Spirit 1 laptop comes in a metal surface body design with a 15.6 inch full HD display. It is powered by a Core i3 Intel processor and intel plus 655 display card. The device will ship pre-installed with Microsoft’s new Windows 11 OS. With its 51 watts big battery, itel says one charge can give you about eight hours of usage time. Spirit 1 can be configured with up to 1 terabyte of hard disk space and 8 gigabytes of RAM. It comes with three USB ports, one HDMI, a micro SD card reader, an earphone jack, and an RJ-45 port.
It seems the Spirit 1 laptop is supposed to have more processing power and handle more work than the Able 1 laptop. But the Core i3 processor feels like it is still geared towards light office work, entertainment and studies than power users.
This is what the company says about the device.
Earlier this year we launched our first laptop Able 1, we have recieved so many feedbacks and felt your passion for more. So today we are bringing you the brand new itel Spirit 1. The first laptop in its prize range that comes with a three by two watts box speaker.
