Domestic tech vendor Karbonn Mobile will chase Micromax by announcing its first ever Full HD smartphone sometime next week. The Karbonn Titanium X has been spotted on company's official website with detailed features and specifications.
Last month India's second most popular smartphone vendor Micromax released the Canvas Turbo A250, a 5-inch Full HD 1080 display smartphone at Rs. 19,990. Local vendors Karbonn, Micromax, iBerry, Zen Mobiles, Spice Mobility, will give tough challenge to Samsung and Sony in the affordable Full HD smartphone segment. International tech vendors Samsung, Sony, HTC, Lenovo, are already selling their respective FHD handsets at a premium price point.
Karbonn Mobiles is the latest entrant in the affordable FHD smartphone segment. Karbonn's last big ticket handset - the Titanium S9, failed to make a mark in the Indian handset market. The Titanium X will pack a 5-inch IPS display having a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It will be powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. The exact specs around RAM and internal memory, is yet to be cracked. Android 4.2 Jelly Bean comes out of the box.
The phone will have a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual LED Flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The device will also have NFC and a 2300mAh battery. Other connectivity features include: Wi-Fi, A-GPS, NFC, 3G, FM Radio and 3.5mm headphone connectivity. The handset would have Dual SIM facility, but right now nothing much is known about the device except selected specifications.
What is NFC?
As mentioned above, the device houses an NFC (Near field communication) chipset, which would make it different from competing handsets. NFC is a standard for devices. It basically allows devices to share data from one device to another, just by touching them. Right now the potential of NFC is huge, but as of now its applicability is limited.
Release date and expected price
The internal specifications and features look similar to the Canvas Turbo A250. GizBot expect the Karbonn Titanium X to be priced around Rs. 18,499 in the Indian market. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
