Indian e-commerce giant, Flipkart has finally unveiled its first smartphone under the newly announced ‘Billion’ brand. Touted as the Flipkart Billion Capture+, the company said has been developed keeping the Indian consumers in mind, and it’s a ‘Made in India’ smartphone.
Flipkart will be selling the smartphone starting November 15, and the Billion Capture+ comes in two different variants- one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage priced at Rs. 10,999, and one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that costs Rs. 12,999. The device will be available in two colour options- Mystic Black and Desert Gold.
Specifications wise, the Billion Capture+ flaunts a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. The display has a 2.5D curved glass on top. The phone is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, which is coupled with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM. As said earlier, the phone comes in two storage models- 32GB or 64GB, and the storage can be further expanded up to 128GB with a microSD card.
Cameras are one of the highlights of the smartphone. The Flipkart Billion Capture+ rocks dual cameras at the back and the setup is quite identical to the one present on the likes of Honor 8, Tenor G, etc. The smartphone has two sensors of 13MP, and one sensor functions as RGB sensor and the other one is a monochrome sensor to capture more details in the images. As usual, there’s a Portrait mode on the phone.
Another highlight is that the smartphone boots near stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat and the entire package is backed by a 3500mAh battery which as per Flipkart can deliver 7 hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charge. Flipkart has used a USB Type-C port in the smartphone. The company will offer free unlimited cloud storage, but the details are yet to be revealed.
For after-sales service, the e-commerce company has acquired F1 Info Solutions, and it even guarantees pan-India service. Commenting on the launch of its first smartphone, Sachin Bansal, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, Flipkart said, “The features in the Capture+ have been derived from deep data-mining of millions of Flipkart customers’ reviews. Few true dual camera phones offer this combination of flagship features. We’re sure this customer-centricity will delight Indian smartphone buyers.”
