The 4.7 Inch LTPS display with 720p HD resolution should offer comfortable one handed usage without any pixelation. Gorilla Glass 3 protection is also present over the OGS display which makes it durable and resistant to scratches and occasional contact with coins and keys in you pocket.

This slab like Videocon flagship smartphone with rounded edges is powered by 1.3 GHz quad core SoC, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. There is option for 32 GB MicroSD expansion as well. The quad core chipset will fuel Andorid 4.4 KitKat on the device.

Videocon has paid due attention to imaging hardware as well. Imaging hardware includes 8 megapixel EXMOR sensor auto focus rear shooter with LED Flash, 5P lens and a 5 MP BSI sensor front camera with 88-degrees wide angle lens to fit more in your selfies.

Dual SIM Videocon Infinium Graphite offers several gesture features, which work directly from lockscreen. You can define 4 gestures and use pre defined ones as well. The 1800 mAh battery inside is the only spec which gets you thinking “only if”. It’s too soon to write it off just yet.

“With the Infinium Graphite we are pushing the boundaries of affordable flagship devices, with which we aim to capture the emerging budget smartphone market of the country. Today consumers are much awake to the fact that cutting-edge features can be experienced in budget prices, and thus are preferring devices which offer them this niche. With our Infinium range we are out redefining the Indian smartphone market which is now expanding from the Tier-I markets and is percolating into the Tier-II, III & IV markets.”, said Jerold Pereira, CEO, Videocon Mobile Phones
