Karbonn Smart A24 – Dual-Core Monster at Rs. 13,000 only
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 goodqHD (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.
Let’s have a clearer look at all the known specifications:
Price Tag: Rs. 13,000
Launch Timeline: End of August, 2012
Karbonn Smart A24 is scheduled to launch by end of August. Expect more news and details between now and then on this device.
Karbonn is one of India’s leading new mobile handset manufacturers.
Only recently did they start making Android handsets which were noticed by the Indian tech community.
Between this year and last year’s handsets, Karbonn has shown such a remarkable change that we are compelled to believe that this new mid-range beast Karbonn’s planning will be anything but good. If the Karbonn A9 is any indication, we can expect a solid device build, as well as a stunning design (for the price point). Thankfully the device won’t be a dual-sim so smartphone enthusiasts can take a breath.
This handset will be Karbonn’s fastest Android smartphone ever. Not only that, they probably will be the first in the world to launch a Jelly Bean based smartphone, which is hands-down an excellent job, if delivered. For people with a budget less than Rs. 10,000 worry not because Karbonn is also planning on launching Karbonn Smart A18, Karbonn Smart A21 which will be priced Rs 11,000 or lesser and will come pre-loaded with Android 4.0 ICS. Not only that, the Karbonn Smart A18 will also feature a dual-core processor and a 4″ display.
Interesting times ahead. We can only wait!
