Karbonn has silently released a new Android smartphone in the Indian market. Dubbed as Karbonn Smart A111, the phone was spotted on Flipkart recently by one of our readers. Powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the A111 has been priced at INR 10,290.
Karbonn Smart A111 packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Scorpion processor, 5-inch display of unknown resolution, 5MP rear camera, 512MB RAM and 2100 mAh battery. The smartphones also comes with 4GB of internal storage with microSD card slot, dual-SIM connectivity, and front camera.
Current Flipkart estimates show shipping in 7-8 days, but it should go down in the next few days. Karbonn is yet to officially announce the smartphone, but we expect to see an official unveiling very soon.
This Karbonn Android phone will be competing with Micromax A101, A110 Canvas 2, Intex Aqua 5.0 and Lava Iris 501 smartphone at this price-point.
Indian manufacturers are seeing a big opportunity in the budget phablet segment and everyone is jumping to grab a pie. Micromax had an early-mover advantage with the original Canvas A100 and it has successfully made use of it, while other companies try and play catch-up.
