There is a rise in the trend for potential consumers to lookout for the entry-level Android smartphones that do not compromise on the specifications forefront. Owning to this, the smartphone manufacturers are coming up with numerous such offerings that can lure the consumers with their solid specifications and reasonable pricing.
The Indian smartphone market is considered a major one by the global manufacturers. There are successful offerings in the entry-level segment such as Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Motorola Moto E, Asus Zenfone 4 and Zenfone 4.5 to mention a few. But, the homegrown players seem not to rest as they are coming up with power packed smartphones in this segment.
Today, Spice has added another jewel to its chest with the launch of the 5.5 inch Mi-549. The smartphone is priced at Rs 7,999 and it is listed on HomeShop18 as ‘out of stock’, but we believe that it will go on sale in the coming days. The device resembles the iPhone 6 in terms of design and packs in a 5.5 inch FHD 1080p display.
Under its hood, there is a quad-core processor of unspecified chipset that ticks at 1.3 GHz clock speed. This processor is aided by 1 GB of RAM to take charge of moderate multi-tasking. There is 8 GB of native storage capacity that would undoubtedly not be sufficient for storing all the digital content and hence, the manufacturer has not failed to include a micro SD card slot that will support up to 32 GB of additional storage.
Imaging hardware of the Spice Mi-549 is standard as it includes an 8 MP primary snapper at its back with auto focus, LED flash and FHD 1080p video recording capability. Also, there is a front facing 2 MP shooter for video conferencing and clicking self portrait shots.
Connectivity aspects onboard the Spice Mi-549 are 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and aGPS. A 2,220 mAh battery powers the smartphone and it is expected to pump in a decent backup to the device.
