Indian handset player, Karbonn has launched a new range of budget Android smartphones starting at ₹2,699 to be available exclusively on Flipkart. The four new phones are the Karbonn Smart A50S, Karbonn Smart A52+, Karbonn Smart A12, and the Karbonn Smart A11. The series of Dual SIM smartphones is powered by Android Jelly Bean and Android KitKat, and available in both white and black.
The cheaper ones – available for ₹2,699 and ₹3,099 – feature Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and a 2MP rear camera while the expensive ones – available for ₹4,099 and ₹4,499 – feature Android KitKat 4.4.2 and a 5MP rear camera. Apart from the cheapest one, the A505 with 256MB, the other three feature 512 MB RAM. All the four phones pack in a dual core 1.2GHz processor, and feature a front camera as well.
The phones feature average specifications for a smartphone, but the sub-5K price maybe a good proposition for some customers. The new price segment is getting more and more focus from domestic handset manufacturers, and it is left to be seen if the Android experience on cheap smartphones holds up consumer interest.
