Itel S15 S15 Pro

Display

Both the iTel S15 and the S15 Pro have the same display screen type, size, and resolution. The screen is a 6.1-inch HD + IPS waterdrop full-screen display. The 16MP selfie camera finds itself shielded right into the water-drop notch fitted on the screen.
The display has a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. And it uses the IPS LCD display technology.

Operating System (OS)

For the operating software, there is a little difference. The regular itel S15 comes out of the box with the Go Edition of the Android 9.0 Pie operating software. But the Pro model runs on the actual Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
This was probably just to give the S15 Pro an edge over the S15.

Processor

The chipsets powering the S15 and S15 Pro are the Unisoc SC7731E and SC9863A, respectively. The S15 is running a quad-core processor clock at 1.3 GHz, while the Pro model has an Octa-core (4×1.6 GHz Cortex-A55 CPU and 4×1.2 GHz Cortex-A55) processing frequency. The graphics processing unit is the ARM Mali 400 MP2 and PowerVR GE8322 for the S15 and S15 Pro, respectively.

RAM and internal storage

The itel S15 comes with 1GB of RAM capacity plus 16GB of internal storage. Its internal storage can be expanded with a microSD card via a dedicated slot up to 128 GB.
For the S15 Pro, you get RAM size of 2GB and an upped 32GB of internal storage capacity. The S15 Pro’s internal storage can also be expanded via a microSD card up to 128GB.

Camera

Now onto what the itel S series really boast of. On the back of the itel S15, we have two 8MP cameras with a LED flash. The selfie snapper housed in the water-drop notch is 16MP.
The S15 Pro also carries the same 16MP selfie camera in its water-drop notch. On its back is a triple camera system with LED flash: 8MP + 5MP + 8MP.
Both the two smartphones have the same camera features. They include HDR, geo-tagging, and panorama. Also, there is a face detection feature as a layer of security.

Battery

Inside the itel S15, there is a non-removable lithium-polymer battery with the capacity of 3000mAh. The battery is said to last for a day even when it is used heavily.
The itel S15 Pro rocks a rather bigger battery. It comes with 4000mAh.

Network and connectivity

Both phones are dual SIM phones. The only difference is the number of network types they support. The S15 Pro supports the 2G, 3G and 4G network bands, but the regular S15 has support for only the 2G and 3G bands.
But for both models, you get Wi-Fi capabilities, hotspot, and Bluetooth. Unfortunately, there is no NFC in either models but there’s GPS.
