India’s Zen Mobile has launched a new smartphone under its Ultrafone series that will sell with the Lollipop 5.0 version of Google Inc.’s Android OS out of the box.
The smartphone is available on eBay Inc.’s Indian site for 5,999 rupees ($95) with specifications that are pretty good at the price point, with the only downside being that the phone doesn’t support 4G.
The 5-inch handset has a 720p display, a 64-bit quad-core processor that will do duty at 1.3GHz speed, 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage, a 5MP autofocus primary camera and 2MP fixed-focus front camera, 2000mAh battery and dual-SIM support. A microSD card slot will allow users to expand storage up to an additional 32GB.
With buyers spoilt for choice in this price range, especially after Xiaomi Corp. reduced the price on its Redmi 2 4G handset to 5,999 rupees on Tuesday, it remains to be seen if this handset will become popular.
The phone is expected to start selling July 15, according to details posted on the online shopping site. Bundled in the box is a hands-free set and a screen protector.
