India based smartphone manufacturer CREO has announced their new flagship Android smartphone, the CREO Mark 1 in New Delhi today with the promise of a new software feature each month and top-of-the-line specifications.

The CREO Mark 1 is equipped with a 5.5-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, 1.95GHz MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of included storage and support for microSD card for up to 128GB. For camera, the handset has a 21-megapixel camera on the rear with support for 4K video as well as 120fps slow motion recording in full HD, an 8-megapixel camera for selfies along with a 3D photo feature that exports animated pictures as GIFs.

Other specifications includes, a 3,100mAh battery supports quick charging so you can get two hours of talk time in 10 minutes, dual SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE.

CREO Mark 1 runs the company's own Fuel OS layer atop Android 5.1. The Fuel OS sticks with a mostly stock Android interface and adds own a few interesting features, a number of which are borne out of suggestions from its users. It also features a Sense assistant, which can be launched by double tapping the hardware home button to search for anything on the device, from apps to contacts to help using its software.

It also comes with Echo, a built-in voicemail inbox. You can use it to respond to a call with a customized greeting when you are too busy to answer it, and retrieve the recorded messages at any time.

Also included is a new feature called Retriever to help you find your phone if it is stolen. When someone steals your phone and inserts a new SIM, the app automatically sends an alert to your email address with the new phone number associated with it, along with the device's location. The whole process happens even without an internet connection.

The company promises to deliver regular updates with a new feature each month and it says their planned May update will bring a new photo editing tool and a full screen flash for selfies.

The new CREO Mark 1 will go on sale in India in the next few week and it will retail for Rs. 19,999 the equivalent of $300 on Flipkart as well as the company's site.
