Karbonn appears to be restless even after splashing the entry-level smartphone market with four new offerings as the vendor has come up with two other phones in its new Opium lineup. Well, this new lineup has Android 4.3 Jelly Bean smartphones that come with usual traits such as dual SIM functionality and 3G. If you are looking for a sub Rs 7,000 priced smartphone, here we have come up with a quick review of one of them – Karbonn Opium N7.
Camera and Internal Storage
At the back of the device is a 5 MP camera with LED flash for enhanced low light performance. The camera is complemented by a basic VGA front snapper that facilitates in making video calls and self portrait shots. For the pricing of the handset, we cannot expect to have too many photography oriented features.
The internal storage of the Karbonn Opium N7 stands at 4 GB which can be expanded by another 32 GB with the help of a micro SD card. We would definitely like at least 8 GB of storage, but considering its pricing it should not be an issue.
Processor and Battery
The Karbonn Opium N7 comes with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor of unknown chipset and it teams up with a paltry 512 MB of RAM that will handle moderate levels of multi-tasking. Though these are not superior, we do not expect anything great from an entry-level smartphone,
A 1,600 mAh battery is present inside the smartphone and through we do not have the specific backup details, it is clear that this battery cannot keep the phone functioning for long hours.
Display and Features
The display unit is a 4 inch one which is an IPS panel having a resolution of 480×800 pixels. Being an average one, the IPS technology will enhance the color reproduction to some extent and render acceptable viewing angles.
The device runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and comes packed with standard connectivity options such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
