A new smartphone brand, 10.or (read as Tenor) has entered Indian market with an entry-level smartphone. The new phone, named 10.or E, marks the brand’s entry in the crowded and highly competitive smartphone market in India. 10.or has partnered with Amazon India to sell its first smartphone exclusively on the e-commerce giant’s portal.
