Domestic manufacturer Karbonn is now retailing Karbonn A50s exclusively on Flipkart for only 2,790 INR, which makes it the cheapest Android phone you can buy. Karbonn A50s features entry level specifications in line with the modest price tag.
The display is 3.5 inches in size and bears 480 x 320 pixels (HVGA) across it. The phone will be fueled by a 1.2 GHz MediaTek dual Core chipset backed by 256 MB RAM and 512 MB internal storage. MicroSD card slot is also present for expandable storage.
The chipset will limit your Android experience and is meant for basic operations like social networking, messaging, etc only. Karbonn has also provided with a 2 MP shooter at the rear and a VGA camera at the front for basic photography.
Other features include 1100 mAh battery, WiFi, 2G EDGE, AGPS and Bluetooth. Software is Android 4.2.2 jelly bean which won’t be a deal breaker at this price.
It’s hard to expect much from the hardware. We can expect many entry level phones in the near future with the arrival of Firefox OS. Perhaps, Firefox will be able to deliver better experience than Android with such humble hardware.
