Acceptance for extra large displays has only increased with the ever changing smartphone trends, and to further bridge the gap between a smartphone and a tablet, Swipe has introduced Swipe Halo Phone, with 6.5 Inch display and a scanty price tag of Rs. 6,999.
The 6.5 inch display features WVGA 800 X 480 resolution and also OGS (one glass solution) technology. The resolution is definitely quite poor considering the size of the display.
As expected, the processor is 1.3 GHz MT6572 Dual core processor backed by 512 MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. The memory is further expandable to 32 GB using microSD card. On the software front, you will get Android 4.2 Jelly bean for rich android experience.
The imaging hardware is again entry level at best. The rear shooter has a 2 MP sensor and is supported by LED flash for low light conditions. A VGA camera is also present at the front for basic video calling.
Swipe Halo Phone supports Dual SIM connectivity along with 3G, WiFi and GPS. The battery capacity is 2800 mAh which is sounds decent enough. Swipe has not unveiled how long this will last in real life scenario. If an extra large display is your top priority, you could consider this modest phablet or others like Zync Z605. Swipe Halo has been priced at Rs. 6,999 and will be available in Black color.
