Philips has announced the launch of Philips X596 in China. Touted as a budget-friendly smartphone, the Philips X596 was recently certified by TENAA.


The Philips X596 is manufactured using the aviation grade aluminium alloy based body, which gives the handset a rugged look. Moreover, the phone is designed in such a way that it looks premium.


The Philips X596 is equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD 2.5D curved display. The display will be larger for web browsing and app navigation. Moreover, the addition of an FHD display helps you to read plenty of content.

Powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor, the Philips X596 smartphone is integrated with 4GB RAM alongside both 32GB and 64GB expandable internal storage. The processor runs at a clock speed of 1.4GHz, which is pretty less than other handsets. The 4GB RAM is sufficient for playing games without any lags. The storage space is comparatively large to enable you to store plenty of data without a memory card.
