After lying low for a while, Karbonn Mobiles today launched a new smartphone, K9 Viraat, in India priced at 4,799 INR. The new Karbonn handset is running the Android 6.0 Marshmallow software (which isn’t the latest Android flavour anymore) and supposedly bestows ‘3D video viewing’ experience.
To facilitate 3D viewing, Karbonn K9 Viraat comes bundled with a mysterious ‘3D Apparatus’ which is most likely a cardboard VR gear. The handset also includes a 5.5-inch HD IPS LCD display. The resolution doesn’t feel very sharp for viewing through a VR headset, which happens to be the primary forte of K9 Viraat.
Under the hood, there is a 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with just 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. You can also add up to 64GB MicroSD card. For photography, the handset includes a very basic 5MP rear camera and a 3.2MP front selfie camera.
Other features include a 2800mAh battery, Bluetooth, WiFi, and GPS.
On paper, the Karbonn K9 Viraat seems like a basic phone meant for first time Smartphone users and that’s only fair considering the price tag. The handset will be available in Champaign Gold and Black Colors for 4,799 INR on Snapdeal and other offline retail stores across the country.
