Swipe Technologies, the Indian startup company, has announced yet another entry-level smartphone, namely, the Swipe Konnect Neo 4G. As the name itself suggests, the Konnect Neo 4G comes with support for 4G LTE and VoLTE and is one among the cheapest smartphones to have VoLTE support at a modest price tag of Rs. 2,999.
The Swipe Konnect Neo 4G will be exclusively sold on Shopclues, and there’s a launch discount of Rs. 150 being offered by Shopclues. The phone comes in only one colour option- black. The rest of the specifications, as expected are entry-level and justifies the asking price of Rs. 2,999.
The Swipe Konnect Neo 4G flaunts a 4-inch WVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. A 1.5GHz quad-core chip powers the phone along with 512MB of RAM for handling system operations. The phone also comes with 8GB of internal storage with support for storage expansion up to 32GB via microSD card.
The handset comes with a 5MP rear camera with assistance for autofocus and LED flash. Up front, there is a 1.3MP sensor for videos and selfies. The Konnect Neo 4G boots Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is backed by a 2000mAh battery.
Connectivity options include, 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n, Bluetooth, FM Radio, and micro USB port. The phone measures 10.6mm in thickness and weigh around 160gm. The phone is already available for purchase in Shopclues.
In the similar price range, the phone has a competitor in the form of iVooMi iV Smart 4G, which has almost similar specs of quad-core SoC, 512MB of RAM, 1800mAh battery, 4-inch FWVGA display, and boots Android Marshmallow. That said, the iVooMi iV Smart 4G also comes with support for VoLTE.
