Indian smartphone maker Spice has today made its latest handset called Stellar Mi-600 indirectly official in the native market. This is the company's first smartphone that uses Google's latest Android 4.4 (KitKat) OS.
Though, the company has not officially launched the device, the white handset has already been listed on one of the Indian online retailers Homeshop18 at the price of Rs. 9,999. The smartphone will be soon made available soon.
What is amazing about the phone is that Spice is offering the giant display measuring 6-inches to the phone at the price which is not so much expensive. And you will also get Android KitKat flavor in it.
To be precise, the Stellar Mi-600 comes with a 6-inch touchscreen IPS display offering a resolution of 960 ×540 pixels and it is powered by 1.3 GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. As said earlier, it runs Android KitKat OS.
There is an average imaging hardware used in the device. It consists of 8MP rear camera with LED Flash and 3.2MP front-facing shooter.
Native storage seats at 4GB but it is expandable up to 32GB via microSD card. Connectivity options include 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP, GPS / aGPS and additionally it is a Dual SIM handset with dual standby.
The latest phablet from Spice is pretty big and measures 149.4 x 74.9 x 9.3 mm and weighs 175 grams. The 2500 MAh battery gives a talk-time of more than 5 hours and up to 170 hours standby ensuring a strong battery backup. Stellar 600 comes with a free Smart Flip Cover worth Rs. 500.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. T M Ramakrishnan- CEO, Devices, Spice Retail Ltd, said "Stellar 600 is for those who dream big. With a large screen size and running on the latest Android version 4.4 KitKat, it is a power-driven device in terms of its processor and expandable storage (upto 32 GB). At Spice, we believe in catering to consumers' needs and aspirations and the Stellar 600 is yet another potent effort from us in exceeding consumer expectations. The combination of these extraordinary features makes this handset a solid addition to the Android family."
If the specs are to be matched with any phones that are available in India, it would be Micromax Canvas XL A119. Thus, this handset can called as the direct rival against the latest offering from Spice.
