Bolt A51 - Samsung Rex 90 Rival?
Analyzing the specs, it is clear that Bolt A51 is aimed to take over Samsung Rex 90 - the newly launched budget smartphone at Rs 5,870.
As far as specs are concerned, Rex 90 comes with a 3.5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, 3.2MP rear camera, dual SIM support, Wi-Fi, micro SD card slot supporting up to 32GB, 1,000 mAh Li-Ion battery offering 15 hours of talk time and is priced at Rs 5,870. Being a feature phone, Rex 90 will be in trouble with the launch of Karbonn A6.
Having a high price tag and lacking several important elements such as 3G, a front camera for video calling and an enhanced battery are some of the downsides of Rex 90 as compared to Bolt A51.
