Homegrown smartphone brand Karbonn has come up with a new smartphone dubbed as the Karbonn Titanium Frames S7. Priced at Rs 6,999, this smartphone from Karbonn offers features such as Full HD display, selfie flash, and Karbonn has put the device against the likes of Tenor E and Xiaomi Redmi 4. Also, telecom operator Bharti Airtel has added this smartphone to the Mera Pehla Smartphone initiative and offering up to Rs 2,000 cashback, which brings down the price of the device to Rs 4,999. The device will be exclusively available on e-commerce portal Shopclues.

As stated, leading telecom operator Airtel has partnered with Karbonn to offer up to Rs 2,000 cashback on the device. To successfully receive the cashback, customers have to recharge the Rs 199 or above plan continuously for 36 months. Post successful recharges after 18 months, the customer receives Rs 500 as cashback, and after next 18 months, Airtel will offer Rs 1,500 cashback, which takes the total amount to Rs 2,000.
There's no need for the customer to return the device after 36 months to Karbonn or Airtel, and the after-sales service will be provided by Karbonn itself.
Karbonn Titanium Frames S7 Specifications and Features
The Frames S7 is the premium smartphone under Karbonn's Titanium range of devices. It is also amongst the few devices to offer a Full HD display under Rs 7,000, with the other one being the Tenor E. The smartphones flaunts a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels, and it even has a 2.5D curved glass on top.
The major disappointment for this device is the usage of a quad-core processor. While Karbonn did not specify which processor is used to power the Frames S7, we believe that it's a MediaTek chipset considering the track record of Karbonn. The chipset is coupled to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB with a microSD card.
The phone measures 8.2mm in thickness and come with a 13MP selfie camera along with a selfie flashlight which helps in capturing good images during low-light conditions. At the back of the phone, we get a 13MP sensor with an LED flashlight support. The device boots Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with built-in Niki.AI Artificial Intelligence support. This package is backed by a 3000mAh battery.
Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB OTG support. Karbonn has added sensors such as the gyroscope, ambient light, proximity, and gravity sensor.
