Salora International launched a new smartphone called Arya A1 Plus today for a pricing of Rs 5,499. The handset comes with a decent spec sheet for the pricing it asks and hence, would be a great value for money offering. The handset will be available for sale via its Salora’s exclusive online partner Amazon starting from December 13. Here we come up with a quick review of the Salora smartphone to know more about its hardware aspects.
Camera and Internal Storage
The primary camera of the Arya A1 Plus is a 5 MP sensor that comes with LED flash for better low light photography. This rear snapper is accompanied by a front facing 2 MP selfie shooter onboard that can render moderate performance when it comes to video conferencing and clicking self portrait shots. These imaging aspects make the smartphone a standard one in its class.
Internal storage is 8 GB and it can be further extended (limit unspecified) using micro SD card. Notably, most smartphones that carry similar pricing pack only 4 GB of storage capacity and we can say that the Salora offering has an edge over these devices in this department.
Processor and Battery
The device employs a quad core MediaTek MT6582A chipset ticking at 1.3 GHz clock speed and we have seen this processor functioning effectively in many other entry-level smartphones, hence there will not be any major issue in handling the usual tasks and moderate levels of gaming and multitasking with 1 GB of RAM onboard.
The battery capacity of the Salora Arya A1 Plus is 2,000 mAh that sounds suffice for the specifications that the device packs. But, the vendor has not revealed the specific backup that this battery can provide, though we believe it to last for long hours.
Display and Features
The 4.5 inch display fitted on the Salora Arya A1 Plus carries a qHD 960×540 pixel resolution that will result in a pixel density of 245 pixels per inch. Furthermore, the panel uses IPS LCD technology to render wider viewing angles and OGS technology to make the screen more responsive. We can hardly find OGS display tech in smartphones that arrive in this price bracket.
The phone supports dual SIM functionality and runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system. This phone comes with connectivity features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.
