This information is adorned in the form of an attractive inscription right on the body of the device. However, in some cases it is not enough.

In fact, it represents unique code or number, which is assigned to a certain product series at the time of release. A simple combination of symbols (letters and numbers) carries information about all the technical characteristics of the gadget, as well as its actual capabilities.

When you hold a new smartphone in your hands, there is no problem identifying the model.
