Karbonn mobile has today unveiled an entry level smartphone- Aura in India. This low cost smartphone will be available at all major retail outlets for the price of 4,990 INR.
Karbonn Aura features a 5 inch IPS display with unspecified resolution and is powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad Core processor coupled with 512 MB of RAM. 1 GB RAM would have been a better fit considering today’s market. Internal storage is 8 GB and you can also use up to 32 GB MicroSD card slot for storing ample multimedia content.
It sports a 5 MP rear shooter with LED flash and also has a 2 mega pixel front facing camera onboard. Operating system is Android 4.4 KitKat, which isn’t latest or greatest Android version around, but again the low price equation comes into play and this shouldn’t be a deal breaker in anyway.
Other features include dual SIM card slots (Dual standby), 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, G sensor, Bluetooth with A2DP and GPS. Karbonn has fit in a 2000mAh power unit, which is above average in this price range.
Low cost market in India is very aggressive these days. Karbonn Aura checks most boxes on paper, but at the same time, does not bring anything new to the table. Online exclusive options like Android One smartphones like Micromax Canvas A1, Micromax Canvas Spark, Coolpad Dazen One and Xiaomi Redmi 2 make for a better proposition in the same price range.
