In India, Obi Mobiles has gained a good popularity in a short span of time. Ex-Apple CEO John Sculley-backed Obi Mobiles today launched its latest Android-based smartphone, the Obi Hornbill S551.
The new handset from Obi is primarily a mid-end device. It is now available for purchase via Indiatimes Shopping, and will cost Rs. 9,230 in the country.
This decidedly mid-range device uses a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Inside the Obi Hornbill S551, you'll find a 1.3 GHz Quad-Core MediaTek MT6582 processor with Mali 400 MP2 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM and a microSD card support (up to 32GB).
Other specs include: a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter (for selfies), and 3G support. The handset runs on Android 4.4 (Kitkat). The device will also support dual-SIM ((Standard + Micro).
The new phone has a somewhat small 2,200mAh battery that keeps the profile slimmer at 7.9mm thick. As of now, the device comes in white color.
Obi Mobiles last month added the Crane S550, Leopard S502 and Falcon S451 smartphones under its portfolio. Obi now has as many as 13 smartphones in India. Obi Mobiles is presently present in India, Singapore and the Middle-East. The handset maker does plan to expand its reach through Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Africa by the middle of next year.
