AKAI Launches Dual-SIM Mobile Phone, the Samurai

After throwing some Symbian love, AKAI has moved on to the budget users segment by launching a Dual-SIM mobile called Samurai. As with most budget phones, the Samurai is not loaded with awesome features or something, but it does boast of some basic ones.

The Samurai is supposed to have a “marathon” battery life of 7 and half hours of talk time and about 30 days of standby time. The phone also has Hindi and English support which might probably make it a decent option for Hindi-literate users. Here are the specifications of the Samurai:

  • 1.8-inch TFT screen
  • Digital camera
  • Memory expandable up to 2 GB
  • FM Radio
  • 3.5 mm audio jack

If you’ve noticed, this phone doesn’t have any connectivity options which could be a bummer considering that many cell phone users literally thrive on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Anyway, the Samurai also has an LED torch and an audio/video player.

It’s priced at Rs. 1800 which pretty much explains the exclusion of quite a few features, but if you are interested in a low budget phone, (we’ve all faced those “Lost-my-smartphone-will-settle-for-cheap-phone” days now) the Samurai is available at your nearest mobile store.
