One among the many smartphone vendors trying to make its presence felt in the Indian sub-continent is Spice Retail Limited. The company has already launched several smartphones in India at an affordable price range in the past and now the company has released its latest budget-friendly device dubbed as Smart Flo Poise Mi 451. The device comes with a MOP of Rs. 5,499 and will be soon made available from online retail sites.
The device comes with average specs. It features a 4.5-inch Ultra bright IPS display, although the company has not revealed the resolution of the display. It comes powered by a 1.3 GHz Dual Core Processor coupled with a mediocre 512MB RAM. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.
While imaging can be taken care with a 3.2mega-pixel rear camera with LED flash along with a 1.3MP front-facing snapper. There is a 4GB internal storage capacity which can be expanded up to 32GB via MicroSD card.
There are very less connectivity options incorporated in the device like 2G (EDGE), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, aGPS. Sadly, there is no 3G support in the device. However, the 8.7 mm thick device comes with a Dual Sim (2G + 2G) support.
As per the company PR, the 1450 mAh battery of the handset gives a talk-time of more than 5 hours and up to 60 hours standby time to the device.
This smartphone is packed with outstanding features like Spice Cloud, G Sensors, 3.5 mm jack etc. and brilliant quality earphones that take your audio experience notches above. The Smart Flip cover works wonders in terms of usability as it allows the user to answer calls without having to flip the cover. The IML back cover offers durability and resistance to the device. The IML (In-Mould Labelling) technology imparts greater wear and fades resistance to the device, hence making it sturdier. Also Apps such as Greetzap, Wechat and WhatsApp come pre-loaded on Smart Flo Poise.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. T M Ramakrishnan, CEO - Devices, Spice Retail Ltd,said, "Smart Flo Poise is the perfect mix of the two with its premium looks and a slim body. The new smartphone features Ultra bright IPS display which makes it stand out and builds on our promise to constantly empower our users with superior technology. With strong market intelligence, we have launched Smart Flo Poise for an enhanced overall user experience."
