The Indian smartphone market is full of devices ranging from 3-inch to 6-inch display sizes and the latest addition is a 4.5-inch smart device that has arrived from the house of Karbonn mobiles.
The new addition to the range of devices from Karbonn, the A12 has been spotted selling on the site of online retailers such as Flipkart and Saholic recently. While the price for the device in a black color option on Flipkart is Rs. 7990, the price for the A12 smartphone at Saholic can be read as Rs. 7699. The availability status for a white colored Karbonn A12 smartphone has been listed as coming soon on Flipkart.
Talking about the specifications, the A12 sports a 4.5-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen display which exhibits a display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Running on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system this Dual-SIM device is powered by a 1GHz processor assisted by 512MB of RAM to deliver a buttery smooth performance. It boasts a 5 MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash along with a 0.3 MP front-facing camera for video-calling. The other specifications of the device includes a 4 GB internal memory which is expandable up to 32 GB via Micro SD Card, connectivity options such as 3G; Wi-Fi; Bluetooth; and GPS, all running on a 1800 mAh battery.
Karbonn is not the only Indian tech manufacturer to launch a big sized smart devices. Several other Indian manufacturers such as Micromax and Lava have also managed to grab a major share of the pie in the segment but with the competitive pricing around Rs. 7500. We may surely expect the Karbonn Smart A12 to give a tough competition to the Micromax A68 Smarty 4.0
and Lava Xolo A500
both offering Dual-SIM support at a lesser price.
