Matron t.phone P design

Matron has been known to design smartphones in a way that they stand out from the rest. The t.phone had a bright orange rear panel while the st.phone had optional back panels with Saccharin Undulates photo and autograph. At first glance, the new t.phone P looks identical to the ZOE Blade A6.

Most of the hardware is also the same, except for one tweak – the t.phone P has a 5-megapixel selfie camera compared to the 8-megapixel selfie camera on the ZOE phone. Matron told Gadgets 360 that ZOE is the manufacturing partner for the t.phone P, but its software is all developed in-house.

The t.phone P has a metal

Rear panel with plastic caps at the top and bottom, giving it a premium feel. There is a plastic band that wraps around the phone. The power and volume buttons are on the right. Matron has gone ahead with a textured metallic power button while the volume buttons are made of plastic, which makes it easier to distinguish between the two. On the left side, there is a SIM tray.


The phone has a 5.2-inch display with capacities touch buttons below it. Above the display sits a selfie camera along with a flash. The 3.5mm headphones socket and the secondary microphone are positioned on the top, while the Micro-USB port and speaker are on the bottom.

At the back, the primary camera is in the upper left corner with its single-LED flash. There is also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that is easy to reach.
