What’s similar – Both phones are powered by Dual-core processors, clocked in at 1.3 GHz. They come with 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of internal storage, expandable to 32 GB by microSD. Both pack 5 MP rear-shooters and front-facing cameras. Both phones run Android 4.2, and are dual-SIM, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS compatible.
Both phones can be bought at the big Indian online retailer Flipkart. The A12+ is priced around INR 5,290 while the A18+ is priced at around INR 8290. The key differentiator is the 5inch screen, and while the A12+ looks similar to the A99, the A18+ is quie different from its recently released 5-inch counterpart, the A35.
