Spice announces Stellar Pinnacle Pro with 5MP front camera for Rs 14,990

Spice has unveiled the Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi 535, the company’s first quad-core smartphone. The phone is set to be available from the end of April for a price tag of Rs 14,990. The company has tied up with retailer Saholic for an exclusive pre-order offer for the smartphone from April 23 onwards.

One of the standout features of the Pinnacle Pro is that it will have a 5MP front-facing camera with wide-angle view, which will come in handy for group video chats. The Mi 535 is a step up from the Stellar Pinnacle Mi 530, which also had a 5-megapixel front camera. The phone is powered by a quad-core processor by Mediatek. The MT6589 processor is clocked at 1.2GHz. Surprisingly, for a low-cost handset, the Pinnacle Pro will launch with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Pinnacle Pro comes with 1GB of RAM

According to Spice, the Pinnacle Pro comes “in a sleek body, (with) elegant contours and an impressive stylish design.” Keeping with the phablet craze, Spice has outfitted the Pinnacle Pro with a massive 5.3-inch display. Disappointingly, the resolution of the IPS display is a mere 960 x 540 pixels.

The Pinnacle Pro will ship with 16GB of internal storage, but users can add a further 32GB thanks to the microSD card slot. In terms of battery life, buyers of the Pinnacle Pro will likely see a full day’s usage thanks to the healthy 2550 mAh Li-ion-Polymer battery.

Around the back is an 8 megapixel autofocus camera, which comes with an LED flash for low-light photography. Spice has also packed in apps for shooting panoramas as well specialised apps such as Hi Camera for better control of all camera settings.

Key specs of the Stellar Pinnacle Pro Mi-535 are:

  • 5.3-inch IPS display with qHD resolution
  • Dual SIM, 3G, GPRS/EDGE
  • Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi tethering and hotspot
  • Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP
  • 8 megapixel autofocus rear camera and 5 megapixel wide-angle front camera
  • 16GB internal storage with expandable memory up to 32GB

Commenting on the launch, Mr. T M Ramakrishnan, CEO, Devices, Spice, said, “Stellar Pinnacle (Mi 530) received tremendous response from the consumers since its launch in January this year. We have set a new benchmark in the industry by adding a 5MP front camera, enabling group video chats. The 1.2 GHz quad-core processor coupled with the latest version of Android will give an enhanced user experience.
