Among the handsets launched today include Xenium X806 which is a 3.0 inch touchscreen device with 5 megapixel auto focus camera with flash and expandable memory up to 8 GB. It is a bit expensive for a feature phone at Rs 8,280, but for people looking at long battery back up, this phone is worth it with 8 hours of talk time and 1 month of standby.
Xenium X518 is another touchscreen phone with a 2.8 inch display, 2 megapixel camera with flash, and 16 GB expandable memory. Its battery back up is even better than the previous one with 40 days of standby time and 12 hours of talktime. The phone is priced at Rs 5,976.

Shenzhen Sang Fi Consumer Communication Ltd, which bought the Philips mobile phone business long ago and still holds the right to use the brand name, manages and markets these phones. A good thing is that there are a lot technologies coming from Philips which lends these phones a better feel and features.

The Xenium I908 is priced at Rs 11,799 and has an octa-core processor while the dual-core processor based S309 is priced at Rs 4,999.
The new Philips E310 claims to offer 50 days of standby while the E160 offers 35 days of back up.
