With the launch of Micromax Canvas HD in India, many Indian manufacturers have got into troubled waters, and to save themselves from sinking, they are prepping their best budget bets to counter strike the newly launched affordable phablet.
When the talk is about Micromax dazzling across the market, how can the Karbonn stand behind? Recently, the native manufacturer released its quad core, Android Jelly Bean powered low priced phablet in the market – S1 Titanium . In January, the phablet was launched at a market price of Rs 10,990.
However, Gizbot has now got some exclusive information from a source familiar to the matter. The tech vendor is prepping a possible successor of mega popular S1 Titanium, dubbed as Karbonn S2 Titanium.
