Karbonn Mobiles has launched its first quad core smartphone, the Smart Titanium 1. The smartphone, which is priced at Rs 10,990 and can be booked from Karbonn’s website, is the first low budget quad core phone to hit the market.
The Karbonn Smart Titanium 1 has a 4.5 inch IPS display with qHD ((960Ã—540) resolution and runs on Android Jelly Bean. The Karbonn Smart S1 Titanium is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and comes with Adreno 203 GPU and 1GB RAM and 4 GB ROM.
The phone has a 1600mAh battery which is the only potentially disappointing figure in this phone. Since it uses ‘energy efficient’ Qualcomm chipset and also Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which also offers better battery management, the phone could offer decent battery back-up.
The Karbonn Smart Titanium 1 comes with a 5 megapixel camera with flash and also there is a front facing camera. You get connectivity options like 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth etc.
The phone can be booked on the Karbonn mobile’s website only.
Karbonn has indeed priced the phone well and will pose a big challenger to the recently announced Micromax Canvas HD A116, which though has a bigger 5 inch display and boasts higher definition resolution, is going to be priced close to Rs 15,000. The Canvas HD also has a MediaTek quad core processor, which is not as coveted a brand as Qualcomm and has traditionally provided less polished CPUs compared to Qualcomm’s well established Snapdragon chipsets.
