Featuring a slim, premium design, the Konka R8A is a budget smartphone that looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.
Like all Konka's smartphones, the Konka R8A is an affordably-priced handset suitable for folks who don't need bleeding-edge features such as professional-grade cameras or AI-powered processors. However, unlike many of its competitors, it's been styled to look a million bucks, despite its low-bucks price.
