It is available at a price starting from 10,000 rupees and comes in two beautiful colors, silver and gold. It comes with extensible support for a stylus that is available for a price of 1,000 rupees, and this is an uplifting news for those who wish to dribble and be creative.The Hardware
The InFocus M680 at its heart is forged with an octa-core 1.5 GHz processor by MediaTek, a standard chipset manufacturer for almost all mobile phones nowadays. With such a processor, one can expect hassle-free functioning with fast processing on the device. Also, 1.5 GHz feels snappy enough for such a handy smartphone. M680 comes with a 5.5 inches LCD capacitive screen and the users have only good things to say about the screen quality. It supports multi-touch usage and provides HD resolution at 1080 x 1920 range. It is suitable for HD video playback up to 1080 pixel quality.
The InFocus M680 runs on Android, making it a familiar device for Indian markets, where some imported phones come with their OS. It features the Android version 5.1 (Lollipop) and is expected to get upgraded to Marshmallow (6.0) in the upcoming months. The OS provides easy functionality to the user with notifications on-screen. It works with dual sim card facility supporting nano sim card sizes which are the de-facto standard for sim-cards these days. The phone also supports 4G LTE for faster web accessing and internet usage at top speeds.
This smartphone comes with an internal storage capacity of 16 GB (ROM) which allows the user to store a lot of files and media in the internal storage itself. Also, it supports external storage up to 64 GB with a microSD card. It consists of 2 GB RAM, which is excellent according to the price range. This sized RAM promises good support for the smooth functioning of the system, given that not much load occurs on the RAM in such smartphones. It could be said that RAM is one of the key points for the success of this phone. Also, when the internal storage being provided is 16 GB, a RAM of this size, and the InFocus M680 delivers just that.
The camera is one thing that has to be talked about, because of the fantastic quality it offers. The speciality of this phone is that it offers 13 MP apparent quality for both the front and rear cameras. This one feature makes it an excellent choice for selfie enthusiasts because no other phone in this price range offers 13 MP for front cameras. It comes with a Samsung 3M2 sensor and added features like auto focus, HDR video recording plus playback and LED flash. Another good feature is the speaker quality, which delivers great music effects with no distortion levels. Which increases its music efficiency up to 75%.
M680 comes with certain common connectivity features like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB. However, it does not support other features like Wi-Fi Direct, NFC and infrared file transfer. This phone also comes with other distinct features like magnetometer, accelerometer, proximity sensor and gyro meter. One of the best characteristics of this phone is its metallic casing for the body that gives it a robust and appealing look. In spite of a metallic body, it weighs only 158 grams, making it light weighted phone with a strong case. It functions with a non-removable Li-ion 2600 mAh battery, which promises great backup time for up to 8 to 9 hours even in 3G mode.
It can be compared to other similar smartphones in its range like the Micromax Canvas 5, Lenovo A7000 and Moto G (3rd Gen). However, it should be noticed that no phone provides 13 MP quality for a front camera. Also, Micromax Canvas 5 comes with a 5.2 inches screen which is almost similar to InFocus M680. Another good advantage of M680 is its body and the sleek design it promises to offer.

It is even available in an affordable price range for smartphone customers who are looking for a new brand that gives almost all features that other old smartphone brands do.
