Hyderabad-based company claims the Campus A35K to be the most affordable smartphone in the Indian market to ship with Android KitKat mobile OS. Currently, the phone is exclusive to Snapdeal.com.
The dual-SIM smartphone has a manageable 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a 1GHz processor coupled with 256MB of RAM and 512MB of internal memory, which can be later expanded up to 32GB via a microSD card slot.
On the imaging front, it comes with a mere 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a VGA quality front-facing shooter. The makers have added a 1,400mAh battery fitted inside. The handset measures 10.7mm in terms of thickness and weighs in at 102 grams. The phone runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat out-of-the-box.

Connectivity options in the phone include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Dual- SIM, Micro-USB, FM Radio, GPS, among others.
Let's be clear. The Celkon Campus A35K isn't a bad device considering its Rs. 3,000 price tag. It could have been even better if the makers would've added at least 512MB of RAM, instead of 256MB. Otherwise, in this price bracket, the Campus A35K has a chance to do well.
The Celkon Campus A35K will certainly face tough challenge from yet another low-end phone, the Karbonn A50s. The newly launched phone is similar to the Campus A35K in respect to the hardware. The handset offers 3.5-inch HVGA TFT LCD display, a slightly enhanced dual-core CPU, 256MB RAM, 512MB on-board storage, a microSD card support, a 2.0-megapixel main camera, a VGA camera on front, a 1,100 mAh battery and runs on Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS out-of-the-box. The device has been made available exclusively at e-commerce website Flipkart. It is priced at Rs. 2,799 only.
