India based Magicon is well known for its budget smartphone and phablet offerings including M1, M2 and Mnote launched in 2012. Now, the company seems to have launched another smartphone dubbed as Magicon Q7 at Rs 8,999.
The official website of Magicon has listed the specifications of Q7, which includes a 4.6 inch capacitive touchscreen display, 1GHz dual core processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, micro SD card slot supporting up to 32GB additional storage, 8MP rear camera, VGA secondary camera, Android 4.0 ICS operating system, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 1,600 mAh battery.

Further, online retailers including Gadgets.in and Naaptol have listed the Magicon Q7 at a price of Rs 8,999. Moreover, launched in collaboration with Aircel, the smartphone is bundled with special call and SMS package.
Of course, the incorporation of Android 4.0 ICS in the Magicon Q7 could be disappointing to many as several manufacturers have started using Jelly Bean OS on budget offerings. But, it has to be kept in mind that Magicon aims to focus on the budget conscious consumers.
Analyzing the specifications, it is clear that Magicon Q7 with bundled plans could be a stiff competitor to Micromax Canvas Viva A72, which went on sale early today at Rs 6,999.
Speaking of specs, Canvas Viva A72 packs a 5 inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, 1GHz single core processor, Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread OS, dual SIM support, 256MB RAM, 110MB internal storage, micro SD card slot supporting up to 32GB additional storage, 3MP rear camera, VGA front camera, 2G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3 and a 2,000 mAh Li-Ion battery offering 280 hours standby and 7 hours talk time.
Though Magicon Q7 is priced higher than Canvas Viva A72, it comes flavored with Android ICS, better dual core processor and improved camera performance.
