After Microsoft removed the licensing cost for using Windows Phone operating system on smartphones, a lot of lesser-known smartphone vendors from India and China have started releasing Windows Phone devices. Karbonn, yet another local smartphone vendor from India has announced its first Windows Phone device, the Titanium Wind W4 for Rs. 5,999.

Based on Windows Phone 8.1, the Titanium W4 is equipped with a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB ROM and a microSD card slot. It features a 5-megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash while the presence of a front-facing camera pokes fun at Nokia’s cheapest Windows Phone device, the Lumia 530 Dual SIM. On the connectivity front, the Titanium Wind W4 has dual-SIM card slots, 3G HSPA, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth. The device would be available for purchase in black, white and red colour variants but Karbonn hasn’t yet specified the battery capacity of the Titanium Wind W4.

The Karbonn Titanium Wind W4 would compete with Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM, Micromax Canvas Win W092 and Xolo Win Q900s, all of which lie in the same price category.
