Itel S41 Specifications & Price

It would appear Itel has finally listened to feedback from its fans. Most striking being that they have broken through their 1GB RAM ceiling again (they first did it with the Itel Wish A41 Plus) with both the Itel S41 and Itel S11 Plus ; featuring a fingerprint sensor in the S41 thus making it the very first Itel phone to feature a fingerprint sensor. Before now, you could guess that an Itel phone would either feature a 512 MB or 1 GB RAM but Itel has turned that page.

My take on the Itel S41

A few weeks back, I was eyeing the Itel P41 for some of my Android Dev work but the Itel S41 has got me thinking again and considering holding on a while because I suspect Itel could have something even better just around the corner.


I’ll start with the not-so-great news. This model features a 2700mAh, Li-Polymer removable battery. I would’ve liked to see more (was actually expecting 5000 mAh) but if they’ve improved battery optimization in this model then I guess that’s just OK. The good part is that its removable….God! I hate inbuilt batteries! 🙂


Before now, the RAM field of an Itel phone’s specs would read either 512 MB or 1GB RAM. Itel shook things up with 3GB RAM on this model and 2GB RAM on the S11 Plus. Now, that’s very comforting for an Itel phone. This model also features a 16 GB ROM

Fingerprint Sensor

If my Itel history serves me right, this is the first Itel Android phone to feature a Fingerprint sensor. Itel touts the fingerprint sensor to have a 0.1s unlock time. Its easy to mistake the Smart key on the Itel Wish A41 for a fingerprint sensor but that’s just a shortcut button for Camera, Torch, Calls etc as seen in the image of the Itel Wish A41’s back below.

The Itel S41 front and back camera are 8.0 MP each (both with flash). This is so far their highest front camera MP so far.

4G LTE & Android Nougat

4G support is a must have in smartphones these days. This model ships with Android 7.0 Nougat. No itel phone has received a version upgrade / update till date (which remains one of my major issues with Itel) but I’m optimistic that they’ll also turn that page with a model anytime soon. I’m so not expecting Android 8 (Oreo) on the S41… but who knows.
