Outside of the increase in the model number to itel P38 and the new features such as all-new fast charging, bigger display, and color options, there are simply subtle changes this year.

Here are some of the most notable changes between last year’s itel P37 lineup and itel P38. Remember, this is not every change, just the most significant ones we can come up with at the moment;

Fast Charging: With a 15W fast charging, P38 is the first fast-charging phone from the itel brand. Coupled with the humungous 5000mAH battery, itel claims that 10 minutes of charging can give close to 3 hours of runtime. We will be able to debunk and try that out when we get our review unit.

Performance: In terms of performance, the P38 has been packed with newer and updated technologies. The AI Power Master can intelligently learn the user’s usage habits, and adjust the power consumption of the software from the background, so as to achieve the purpose of balanced power saving.

The newer itel OS 7.6 has a social turbo, XHide privacy vault, and anti-theft alerts feature out of the box.

In terms of software, Andriod 12 Go editions, will offer some notable changes and differences in overall performance.
