Karbonn’s mid-range smartphone, the A7 Star has gone up for sale at a couple of online retailers. While one retailer has listed the Karbonn A7 Star for the price of Rs 6,190, another store is offering the phone for Rs 5,990.
In terms of specifications, there’s nothing that stands out, but that doesn’t mean the A7 isn’t a solid handset for the price. There’s a 4.5-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. It settles for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, instead of the more recent Jelly Bean version of the OS, which can be considered a demerit in the A7. But at least it’s not saddled with Gingerbread.

Despite the low price, there’s a dual core CPU clocked at 1GHz and the A7 also has 512MB of RAM. A five-megapixel camera rests on the back while a VGA camera adorns the front face. Disappointingly, internal storage is a measly 164MB, which means there’s no option but to use the microSD card slot if you intend to use the smartphone to its fullest. The 1,400mAh capacity battery seems slight when looking at the overall specs, but the low-res and underpowered processer shouldn’t tax it too much.
Here are the key specs of the Karbonn A7 Star:
4.5-inch display with a 480 x 854 resolution
Dual-sim, 3G, GPRS/EDGE
Wi-Fi with hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS
5MP main and VGA secondary cameras
164MB of internal memory, expandable up to 32GB
