Ever since the debut of this year, the manufacturers are focusing on launching budget smartphones, especially in the entry-level segment. With the announcement of Motorola’s Moto E in this market space, the indigenous vendors are triggered to do the same to achieve success and to offer a tough competition to the Lenovo acquired firm.

Following Micromax and Lava, Spice has launched a smartphone dubbed Spice Stellar 509 priced at Rs 7,999. The handset is available for sale on popular e-commerce portal HomeShop18. The handset comes with a free flip cover featuring leather-like finish for added protection against scratches.

Detailing on the specifications, the Spice Stellar 509 flaunts a 5 inch IPS LCD display with a standard screen resolution of 854×480 pixels and it is fueled by a quad-core processor ticking at 1.3 GHz coupled with 1 GB of RAM. Furthermore, the handset packs 4 GB of internal memory space that can be extended externally up to 32 GB with the help of a micro SD card.
