Indian smartphone maker iBall officially launched two of its affordable handsets called the iBall Andi4 IPS Velvet and Andi4 IPS GEM a week back in India and now the company has released these handsets via a third-party online retail sites. To be precise, the iBall Andi4 IPS Velvet is on sale on Flipkart at Rs. 4,098 (MRP: Rs. 5,199) and the Andi4 IPS GEM is available through eBay.in for Rs. 4,999 (MRP: Rs. 5,699). Both these phones are offered in Black and White colors.
Both these devices are pretty affordable and will stand against handsets like Moto E and Micromax's latest offering Unite 2.
iBall Andi4 IPS Velvet comes with a 4-inch (480 x 800 pixels) touch screen IPS display. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor coupled with a very less 256MB of RAM and runs on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) OS. Camera-wise, the handset is pretty decent as it uses a 5MP rear camera with LED Flash and it also features a front-facing VGA shooter.
It houses 2GB of internal memory, which is further expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD. However, the onl7y drawback the phone has is the lack of 3G connectivity. It only offers 2G (EDGE),WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, aGPS. The company has atleast added a Dual SIM (GSM + GSM) support in the handset. It is powered by a 1300 mAh battery.
On the other hand, the iBall Andi4 IPS GEM sports a 4-inch (480 x 800 pixels) touch screen IPS display. It is powered by a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor coupled with a same 256MB RAM and runs on Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) OS. Camera hardware also remains the same like in the Andi4 IPS Velvet with the inclusion of 5MP rear camera with LED Flash and a front-facing VGA unit. Also storage capacity is similar.
The only difference you will find in this phone is the 3G HSPA+ connectivity option. Others like WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, GPS and Dual SIM (GSM + GSM) are also offered by the company. It is also powered by a same 1300 mAh battery capacity.
