itel today announced that its latest smartphone has arrived in South Africa, the itel A05s. Staying true to its brand philosophy of ‘Enjoy Better Life’, this new device makes life easier, more connected, and fun for users. Here’s a breakdown of the key features and specs.

Big Storage and Expandable Memory

Just like other itel devices in the budget phone price range, the itel A05s brings big storage that many comparable devices lack. With 32GB of Read-only Memory (ROM), which is expandable up to 128GB, you’ll have space for all your essential and favourite apps. 4GB of extended Random Access Memory (RAM) allows you to multitask seamlessly. The phone’s efficiency is driven further by an octo-core processor, that brings the power behind the scenes, while it is also key to note that this device is 4G enabled.

A Visual Experience

A large 6.6” HD+ Waterdrop display brings a visual experience no matter what you are doing. Whether it’s browsing through your socials, surfing the web, watching your favourite movie or series, or playing an addictive game, the phone’s display is pleasing to the eyes. Colours pop and a wide viewing area enhances the visual experience.

A Long-Lasting Battery

The itel A05s packs a 4,000mAh battery into it. With average use, this battery size translates to a day of use without the need for charging (dependent on usage level and usage type). An in-box charger is on hand for power top-ups, which accompanies a protective cover and a pair of earphones that come with the phone.

Secure Access and Data Protection

Securely and conveniently accessing ones device and ensuring that data is kept safe are crucial focus areas. These are achieved with the itel A05s through both fingerprint and face unlock functions. These are standout features for a phone in this price range, and reflect two of itel’s core values, safety and security.

Not only does the itel A05s contain some thoughtful features and specs, but the device is also interesting to look at and comfortable to hold. Described as a touch of classic mixed with everyday contemporary, the phone’s features a sleek and slim profile, exuding refinement and elegance as it sits perfectly in your hand.


The itel A05s is available from select itel retail partners including Ackermans and PEP (availability varies per store and while stocks last) for a recommended retail price (RRP) of R1499.

Other itel smartphones available in South Africa include the itel P40, itel A60s, itel A60, itel A04, and itel A18. These devices are available from select itel retail partners including Ackermans, Edgars, Incredible, HiFi Corp, Mr Price, PEP, and TFG (availability varies per store and while stocks last), for a RRP of R1999; R1699, R1499, R1299, and R899 respectively.
