Karbonn has launched Titanium S1 plus budget Android smartphone in India. The domestic Indian Mobile vendors seems to have realized that the devices with old Android versions and low MB RAM devices are no longer acceptable for the public. The phone is priced Rs. 5,749.
Karbonn Titanium S1 Plus features a 4 inch display that offers 800 x 480 p WVGA display. It is powered by a quad core processor of unknown make along with 1 GB of RAM. Internal storage is 4 GB which can be expanded using a microSD card.
There is a 5 MP rear camera and a VGA camera. The connectivity options includes WiFi, Bluetooth and micro USB port along with 2G and 3G connectivity options. It is a dual SIM phone. S1 Plus seems slightly thick from outside. That could be the only noticeable flaw in this device.
Recently we saw a similar device from Lava which is called Lava Iris 406Q. The specifications of both phones are identical. We do not know the chipset of this device, but 406Q runs a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset. The 406Q is upgradeable to Android 4.4 Kitkat OS and will receive the Kitkat update very soon. The battery is of 1500 mAh capacity.
Karbonn had launched 3 device in the midrange segment that are powered by Octa-core and Hexa-core processors. The Karbonn Titanium Octane, Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus and Karbonn Titanium Hexa phones will be available shortly in the country. Karbonn Octane and Hexa phones were launched last month
I have prepared a chart where you can compare the key features of both devices.
