Karbonn has been losing out on its market grip in the past few months in India and is looking to get back in the game. It has launched two new budget handsets in the market under the Opium series with moniker N7 and N9 for Rs 5,999 and Rs 8,999 respectively. Let us take a look at their specifications:

Opium N7:

  • 4 inch IPS display with a resolution of 800 ×480 pixels
  • 1.2 GHz quad core processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • 4GB of internal storage capacity which is expandable by another 32GB
  • 5MP rear camera with LED flash and a VGA front camera
  • 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Dual SIM connectivity
  • 1600 mAh battery
  • Black colour only
  • Rs 5,999

The smartphone will be battling it out against the likes of Karbonn Titanium S1 Plus, Micromax Unite A092 and a slew of other sub Rs 6,000 quad core smartphones.

  • 5 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels
  • 1.3 GHz quad core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • 4GB internal storage and it is expandable by another 32GB with a microSD card
  • 8MP primary camera with LED Flash and a 2MP secondary camera
  • 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Dual SIM connectivity
  • 2000 mAh battery
  • Black and white colour options
  • Rs 8,999

The two devices are an attempt from Karbonn to help it gain back its share in the Indian smartphone market which has been falling constantly. Moto G and Moto E coupled with a slew of launches in the sub Rs 15,000 arena have contributed to that. Now that Xiaomi has begun its operations in India, the road is not going to be easy for Kabonn in future either. A regular update schedule would help it for sure in future.

I wonder who suggest names for the phones? OPIUM? Why NOT use Brown Sugar or Marijuana as names of smartphones?

Further with just Android 4.3 they can never fight with Moto E or G, let alone Mi3… Since 4.4 can only give the much needed performance boost for these budget phones, imho…
