Karbonn has been one of the few OEMs who have not had a wave of hype around them in terms of launching smartphones which redefine segments or get everybody's attention. It has been quietly launching a slew of smartphones in the budget segment and the latest smartphone to be launched by it is the Karbonn Aura which has just been launched for Rs 4,990.
It is one of those handsets which won't grab anybody's attention and neither has Karbonn gone the distance to make it worth a look even in the sub Rs 5,000 segment. It has a 5-inch IPS display of unspecified resolution. We are guessing it would be 800 x 480 pixels. There's a 1.2GHz quad-core processor ticking at its heart and even its make is unspecified. This would be a MediaTek unit in all likelihood. There's just 512MB of RAM for multitasking. Let us quickly run through its specifications:
