Smartphones with rotating cameras are becoming the trend and we have seen few offerings from the Chinese vendors – Gionee and Oppo with such swivel cameras. If you prefer this, but holding back considering the cost of such smartphones, iBall has come up with a feature phone that has rotating camera only for a pricing of Rs 1,499.
Of course, the pricing of the device dubbed iBall Avonte 2.4G makes it clear that the handset’s camera will exhibit minimal performance without much quality. The camera is of 2 MP resolution and it also includes a LED flash for relatively better low light performance. Also, the camera can be rotated to 180 degree and it can be used as a rear snapper and a front camera as well.
Like the other feature phones, the iBall Avonte 2.4G is a dual SIM handset with a 2.4 inch non-touch screen and a physical numeric keypad. There is FM Radio and a quality rich speaker as well onboard. The vendor provides a free protective cover with the iBall Avonte 2.4G. Furthermore, the feature phone supports WhatsApp that is an interesting aspect.
Though the handset is a basic one with not a good camera quality, the rotating camera would definitely attract the feature phone seekers. Also, the WhatsApp support will make it compete with the Nokia Asha phones such as Asha 306 and Asha 210 that also support the popular messaging application WhatsApp.
