Karbonn A24 dual core with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean inbound
We had written a really long time ago about Karbonn preparing a flagship smartphone dubbed the Karbonn A24. Well, that dream might finally become a reality as Karbonn might be launching the fabled A24 smartphone in the next week or two.
“Karbonn is all set to launch their “phablet” (but 4.5″ today is just a normal smartphone) at the end of August. Armed with a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, this Android 4.1 Jelly Bean based smartphone is all set to take the market by storm and surprise. At the back is an 8 MP camera with LED flash. Karbonn has added a front facing VGA camera for video calls as well. The phone’s 4.5″ display will have a good qHD (960×540) resolution, a first for Indian manufacturers, and very impressive too. It is to be believed based on earlier reports for the display to be of IPS make, which is only better.”
This is what we had written back in July, 2012. Fast forward to January 2013, and fresh news tells us that Karbonn A24 is inbound, and has the same specifications that we predicted 6 months ago! Most definitely we were on the right track, but something happened and Karbonn gobbled up that smartphone.
Well we are glad that Karbonn will finally launch the A24, which will have a feature set like this:
Karbonn A24 Specifications
- 1.2 GHz dual core Mediatek processor
- ARM Cortex A9 dual CPU
- PowerVR SGX531 GPU
- 4.5″ qHD (960 x 640) resolution IPS LCD display
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8 MP rear camera
- VGA front facing camera
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Looking good. Mind you, we predicted these 6 months ago! The phone will look similar to the Karbonn A21 itself. Hopefully this time the smartphone really sees a “real” launch!
