We’ve seen a lot of smartphones launched with the attribute “budget smartphone” in the last few months, but most of these had 2GB RAM, battery capacities of over 2000mAh and a few other reasonable specs.

Just take a look at the specs; small display, an unnamed processor, 8GB internal memory and a sub-2000mAh battery capacity.
