LYF Earth 2 Smartphone+
Like all other devices in the LYF Smartphone+ range, Earth 2 is marked by an exceptional mix of design, performance and technology and is equipped with VoLTE technology for a true 4G experience.
Earth 2 brings to the user some uber tech features such as Smart+ Camera, Smart+ Screen, Smart+ Sense and Smart+ Security that enhance the photography experience, enrich the viewing experience, boost security and bring convenience for users.
Smart+ Camera: Earth 2 has super powerful cameras in the front and rear, both 13MP; the front camera comes with a flash as well as PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus), commonly found in DSLR cameras. Also, the rear camera is equipped with laser auto focus, enabling it to focus in 0.1 seconds. It also features a ProMode which allows the professional photographer in you to access advanced settings for a unique photography experience. But what makes Earth 2’s camera panel stand out from the rest is its voice command feature which allows the user switch between the selfie camera mode and the primary camera mode by passing voice commands to the device. The feature also brings convenience by allowing users to click pictures by simply saying ‘smile’ or ‘selfie’ or ‘capture’. The voice command camera greatly augments the user’s photography experience with added agility and convenience.
Apart from this, it has the smile detection mode, the touch-up mode, as well as the GIF maker to allow the user to make animated GIFs images from pictures clicked. Earth 2 also allows the user to shoot videos in the HD mode.
Smart+ Screen: Earth 2’s ultra-narrow aluminium alloy frame is fused with 2.5D glass, creating a clear, monolithic feel, which speaks of elegance and ergonomic design. It has a 5-inch screen and sports a screen-to-body ratio of 72%, beating the top models of some premium brands. That and a rich 445PPi display, along with 178 degree viewing angle guarantees an amazing video viewing experience. What makes Earth 2 unique is that it comes in a range of four attractive colours: Black, White, Green, and Gold. Also, the Gorilla Glass 3 front panel makes the screen scratch resistant.
Smart+ Security: Earth 2 has three security features: the conventional pattern/PIN, retina unlock, and fast fingerprint sensor. That’s not all. It has sensors that enable the user to assign unique fingerprints to jumpstart any 3 applications with just a touch on the lock screen. It also allows the user to encrypt photos and videos stored in the gallery, to protect them from prying eyes. It goes even further to safeguard personal data by allowing the user to encrypt various social media applications.
Smart+ Sense: Earth 2 uses the smart sense+ technology that enables the user to personalize and control the phone with as many as 19 gestures and shortcuts, making it extremely convenient to use.
Performance: Earth 2 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon Octa Core Processor powered by a 3GB RAM and an internal memory of 32GB. It has a 2500mAh battery to support a fantastic True 4G experience, which means high-speed internet, HD-quality voice and video calling, multi-party voice and video conferencing, and seamless switching between voice and Wi-Fi networks.
LYF Earth 2 TVC:
The new TVC features Priyanka Chopra demonstrating the Smart + features of the Earth 2 device in this compelling and fun production. The creative concept is aimed at demonstrating how the smartphone fits in the digital life of today’s youth and how these features deliver the desired digital experience.
