After a long gap, Kobian a brand of computer components and peripherals has recently launched its new smartphone called the Mercury Glitz in the Indian market at the price of Rs. 7,799. The device is offered in black color along with a one-year warranty and would be available across India starting from July 15th.
So far, Kobain has come up with a number of budget-friendly tablets in India but comparatively they are low-end devices with basic specifications.
The smartphone which the company has launched today also is somewhat in the same line and it doesn't come with high-end specs either. In simple words, it is an entry-level smartphone with a larger display.
Sushmita Das, Vice President, Business, India at Kobian Pte Ltd said, "Keeping in the global and South Asian trends, Mercury is presenting Glitz to the smartphone buyers across India. Glitz is featured with Dual core, 1GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB internal storage at an unbeatable price of Rs. 7799."
Kobian Mercury Glitz: Key Specifications
Kobian Mercury Glitz sports a 6-inch (960 x 540 pixels) capacitive touch IPS display and it is powered by a 1.3 GHz dual-core MediaTek (MT8312) processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) OS, upgradable to Android 4.4 (KitKat).
Imaging aspect is not that good either, it houses a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and 0.3MP (VGA) front-facing shooter. Other specs include Dual SIM, 8GB internal memory, expandable memory up to 32GB with microSD, 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a 2,000 mAh battery. The phone measures 8.2mm thick and weighs 240 grams.
To compare, Kobian Mercury Glitz could be the larget phone in this price range but specs-wise it will fail to stack up against the ones which are running ths show in the Indian market.
Most of the smartphone that are being offering in the market at this particular price-point is powered by a quad core SoCs and run Android KitKat OS.
However, on the advantage of the Kobian Mercury Glitz, it has a greater internal memory and a larger display.
Thus, depending on the need on the buyers at large, the phone's fate in the Indian market will be soon justified.
