If you have a budget of 5k or less and looking to buy a phablet sized smartphone, then consider checking all new Celkon Campus A518, which is introduced few moments ago.
The device features 5inch display and also have support for the 3G cellular network. Thus, joining few of the better smartphones in this price range.
There is a bunch of cool features included in the device, considering the price tag. Android 4.4.2 KitKat is the main operating system that is driving the device right out of the box. The display supports the maximum resolution of 480×854 pixels, that means, it is an FWVGA display which is added on IPS panel. It simply means that you can expect some decent viewing angles and color reproduction.
The whole unit is driven by single core 1GHz processor, which is a thing I would tag my down thumb with, as dual-core processors are easily found in phones of the price group. The CPU is bundled with 512MB of RAM along with 4GB of internal storage.
The storage is expandable, thanks to microSD card slot which can support up to 32GB of storage size. A 3.2MP rear camera is in there with LED flash and surprisingly a 1.3MP camera is also there at the front.
As labeled in the title itself, and also in starting para, 3G is supported along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. 2,000mAh battery is running the whole show. Coming at the measurement, 9.75mm is the thickness noted while the unit weighs about 164 grams.
Following the tradition of launch events, the Managing Director of Celkon Mobiles, Y Guru said, “We at Celkon believe in constantly upgrading our offerings with innovation. The new Campus A518 is one such model which combines the power of a large screen with latest features and stylish add-ons. We have many more exciting and innovative products in the pipeline.”
Dual SIM card slots are supported along with dual standby, and you will have a choice to choose between white and dark blue colors.
Now, considering the earlier launch of Micromax Canvas Spark, which is priced just 5k INR but features a lot better specifications than this Celkon Campus A518, and many other in the group, this is going to be a tough war down there.
Do let me know if you’re going to buy it or still try your luck in those fancy flash sales.
