Karbonn A6 available online for Rs 5,390

Karbonn’s latest handset, the A6, has been spotted online on SnapDeal.com for a price of Rs 5,390. The entry-level Android has a 4-inch screen and runs Android version 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

Karbonn A6 is a dual-SIM phone and the 4-inch screen sports a 800 x 480 pixel IPS display. The phone is powered by a 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM in tow. Being a budget phone, it has a very small on-board storage of 104MB. However, it can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

It has a 5MP rear camera and a VGA front facing one for video calling, making it a good deal for an entry-level Android handset. The A6 offers GPRS/EDGE while sadly skips 3G capabilities, so all your Skype callings will need to be done on Wi-Fi. The phone has Bluetooth capabilities, FM Radio to make travelling easy and a 3.5 mm jack that will support nearly all earphones.

The phone comes with a 1450 mAh battery that ensures a talktime of 3.5 hours or a standby time of around 250 hours. The phone will be entering an already competitive budget Android phone segment but has decent enough features to carry it through.

The phone seems to currently be available only on SnapDeal.com for Rs 5,390 and shows a delivery time of four business days. The site also offers the phone on an EMI of Rs. 1,796 for three months for the buyer’s convenience. Flipkart has also listed the phone, although the page shows that the phone is coming soon and no price has been displayed yet.

Tying up with a single retailer initially seems to be a strategy adopted by most Indian companies these days. Karbonn had earlier listed the A111 earlier in February with Flipkart for Rs 10,290.

Much like other Indian smartphones, the Smart A111 has dual-SIM capability. It is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz Scorpion processor and has 512MB of RAM. It runs on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. The sensors on the phone include an ambient light sensor, a G-sensor and a proximity sensor. The phone is equipped with a giant 2100 mAh battery. It also features a secondary front-facing camera.

Here are the highlighted features of the Karbonn Smart A111:

  • 5-inch touchscreen
  • 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP
  • 5 megapixel camera with auto focus, burst mode and face detection
  • 4GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD up to 32GB

The phone comes with Skype, Facebook, Yahoo, NexGTv, PayTM and WhatsApp pre-installed, along with the standard Google Apps, including Play Store and Google Talk.
