Karbonn, the local smartphone manufacturer has yet again launched a new smartphone in its K9 series. Dubbed as Karbonn K9 Smart Grand, this smartphone is the successor to last year's Karbonn K9 Smart.
However, the new Karbonn K9 Smart Grand comes with some noticeable upgrades over its predecessor. K9 Smart Grand now comes with a fingerprint scanner. One similarity though, this new handset will also cater to the entry-level segment and is a decent offering considering its features and specifications. We can't argue anything taking the price into account.
As such the smartphone comes with a price tag of Rs. 5,290 and will be available in two colors - Black and Champagne.
In any case, let's have a look at what this budget smartphone has to offer.
