This phone can now be pre-ordered for only $99.99, which means that it is 51 percent more affordable than usual, you’ll hardly find a similar price point anywhere else. The HOMTOM HT50’s main selling point is its huge battery, this phone comes with a 5,500mAh unit on the inside, and that should be more than enough to satisfy even those of you who are heavily using your smartphone during the day, having its other specs in mind, of course. Now, before we start talking about the device itself, do keep in mind that the phone will ship your way somewhere between July 17 and August 1 if you decide to pre-order one.
As you can see, the HOMTOM HT50 comes with a set of capacitive keys below the display, overview (multitasking), home and back keys are included there, and this phone sports a frame made out of metal.
