Just a month back, Indian mobile handset maker Karbonn had teased potential customers with a few images of its upcoming mid ranged Android based handset Titanium X. Now the wraps have been taken off the phone. The new device is priced at Rs. 18,490. To a little surprise, it’s a single micro-SIM device as most phones in this segment come equipped with dual SIM.
Here are the other key features of the smartphone-
- Display– 5-inch (1080×1920 pixels) full-HD IPS display
- Processor-1.5GHz quad-core processor with unknown chipset
- Camera– 13-megapixel rear autofocus camera with dual LED flash, 5-megapixel front-facing camera for self shots and video chats
- SIM– Single SIM (micro-SIM)
- Memory– 1GB of RAM, 16GB of inbuilt storage, with further expansion capability up to 32GB via microSD card.
- Operating System– Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- Connectivity– NFC support, micro USB, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi
- Battery– 2300mAh Li ion battery to provide up to 6 hours of talktime, and up to 240 hours of standby time
- Sensors– proximity sensor, G sensor, magnetic sensor, gyro sensor, and light sensor
The device comes in black and white colors. With its price, it makes a good buy as it is the ‘affordable’ smartphone from an Indian brand to have NFC support. Apart from this, a good quality rear and front camera and a wide range of sensors make it further attractive. With the device, the company has tried to position itself as one which can not just bring out affordable devices but the one which can also offer tough challenge to other established players through its products.
As customary in the segment, the device will bear the brunt of competition from the likes of Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 and Gionee Elife E6. Let’s see how the it fares against all these.
